The day we visited there were very few visitors, the temperature was in the 60's and the sun was shining brightly. This is one of the nicest zoos I've ever visited. The climate means they don't have to have so many buildings for the animals which gives them much more space to command. I also saw a number of species... More

My wife and I went to Zoo Miami while travelling through the area recently because, well, she never met a zoo she didn't want to visit. I must admit this is one of the better ones she has dragged me to. By comparison to many other zoos, the $18 base admission is a bargain. It has to be said that... More

It's a long walk and you should probably rent the bicycles available at the entrance, but prepared for spend almost $ 40 on that.

We visited Zoo Miami on a cool but sunny Tuesday. The lack of crowds and perfectly comfortable temperature made for a wonderful 5 hour visit. We love the animal habitats without cages and fencing. There is a great variety of animals, birds and reptiles. And we loved feeding the giraffes!

I love this zoo. We moved down to Miami on Summer 2013, and I live 5 miles away from the zoo, after our first visit, I decided to get an annual pass. After that, I would sometimes go once a week, after picking up my son from school and we will stroll around the zoo for an afternoon walk enjoying... More

This is by far the best zoo I have been too and well worth the money. This place is very big and you need a full day to see all they have to offer

Zoo Miami is a very nice zoo with a large variety of animals. I would recommend to use one of the transportation options proposed because walking the entire zoo can be difficult for young kids.

This place is huge... Their website does it no justice at all, it really was so much more than i had expected. They are re-doing the entrance so the way in is a little underwhelming, but once you get past this, be prepared to spend some serious time here whilst burning some serious calories! The zoo us divided in to... More
