A great place to spend the day, avery is re-built, full of waterfalls and birds. Excellent kids playground, nice new exhibits in the back of the park. Train ride returns you to the front. Awesome place to visit.

I went with my grand kids and weeks after they are still taking about it. You should rent the bike no matter how long the lines to rent one. The time you spend to rent will be made up as you visit the zoo areas. Because there are plenty to see and things to do and too many steps to... More

People are not kidding when they say this place is large. We used the tram that is the alternate to the monorail that's not currently running and that circles the entire place with about 5 stops. (3.50 each all day while monorail is down, not the 'tour' tram) easy on and off. We could see a lot of the animals... More

Zoo Miami is big! And I'm not necessarily saying it's the zoo with the most animals, but the grounds are very spacious (upshot, more room for the animals!), so I would recommend hiring the bikes to get around ESPECIALLY if you're going as a family. The Miami heat plus a couple of miles walking will really tire your kids out.... More

I recently had an opportunity to visit the Zoo in Miami Florida. Such a pleasant and enjoyable opportunity to enjoy the outdoors while seeing the many species of animals and exhibits this zoo has to offer. Several food courts available if you are entertaining young ones. If you are in the Miami area make this a 'must see' especially if... More

It is time to visit the Zoo again. Zoo Miami is a fun place and very educational. The wildlife live in cage free environments. You can see elephants walking with huge sprays keeping them cool and hydrated. There are many attendants around to answer questions and care for the animals. Wings of Asia is an amazing exhibit. At first you... More

Great Zoo. TONS to see. The exhibits we great and well kept. Lots and lots of animals to see. Plenty of places to get something to eat, use the facilities, cool down or take a load off. They have several children's areas that were great to watch the kids play and interact. They have cooling stations along the paved walkways.... More

Over the years, I've heard a lot of great things about the zoo. So, While I'm glad to have spent the day there, I was rather disappointed in the conditions. First - we're in the heart of the 'season' but the monorail was out of service. They have amphitheaters but there were no shows. I expected some educational shows. The... More
