Liked the zoo over all found it a little expensive for not having the tram running they should included at least 1 free ride on the safari bus since the zoo is so big. They do rent bikes and I recommend anyone who can't walk alot to rent one..as its alot of walking.You would think that because the everglades are... More

Great day with toddler but go at opening to avoid sun & crowds. Our 2-yr old loved the monkeys, bears & birds. She also enjoyed going in large bike which you pedal yourself.

To be honest I'm not a big fan of seeing animals out of their habitat. I had to go because I was with family and friends that wanted to go. I think animals should be free. However, Zoo Miami convinced me that they are ok, and are very well treated. It doesn't feel like they are in jail or something... More

Great zoo and reasonably priced family outing. Take sunscreen on hot days. My favorite thing for the kids play area which has plenty of things to keep the little ones interested.

Very nice place, well kept, with very interesting areas to learn and see a good variety of animals. Very good areas of interaction for children, like being able to feed the giraffes. Recommended attraction for families.

We took our grandchildren, ranging from 16 to 3 yrs old, while they were visiting from Jacksonville. Had not been to the zoo in some time and it is as beautiful as we remembered. The kids, all ages, thoroughly enjoyed their day at Zoo Miami. The aviary is outstanding. We started early to get to see the animals before they... More

This zoo is exciting, rejuvenating, fun, and great exploring with family and friends. It has sites, exhibit, and animals for all ages. We had a wonderful time with the swan pedal boat, the bicycle, and all the wonderful exhibits that they have. We can't wait to go back and finish see the rest of the zoo. Having an annual pass...
