I am a big animal/zoo person and have been to many. I have been to some ghetto ones, decent ones, and some pretty excellent, acclaimed ones. Zoo Miami was definitely the biggest one that I have ever been to and may also be the best. First of all, it is HUGE. Just to walk around and see all the animals... More

Go on a cool day when the animals are still active. There is a cooling place for your children to play in the water. Check in out and possibly bring your bathing suits. Really spread out. Lots of walking. Use the trams and shuttles when running. Gulf Coast Railroad Museum is just next door. Great collections of trains.

Went on a hot day and just about passed out due to dehydration..they have drink machines at different locations in the park, most of which weren't working...there was just one location in the whole park open (passed many food booths such as dippin dots that were closed) for food, which was mobbed and offered the usual horrible overpriced amusement park...

We decided to take the kids to the zoo for something different. I have to say it was a great day for it. Nice breeze about 78 and somewhat cloudy. The monorail wasn't running so no trip around the park over the different areas. There were a few animals not out but most were out in the open and active.... More

We have always enjoyed zoos, with or without our children. We had been here before Andrew destroyed it, remembered it as a great zoo. This visit did not change that opinion. Lots of activities for children have been added, even a small 'water park' type feature.There were many exploratory sites and activities. The food was very good,especially for 'theme park'... More

One of the true authentic tropical zoos in the world. The animals can truly thrive in the jungle-like atmosphere and not feel like foreigners :-) The staff of the zoo is kind and attentive. There are many activities that you can do; from riding the safari bike to swan boats. For a $17 admission, this park is a bargain. Have... More

We had a wonderful time at the zoo. It's very well laid out so you don't miss anything. You can even rent a bike/surry type vehicle for your whole family. While we didn't, it looked like those who did were having a great time. My only suggestion for those that do rent one is to make sure your little ones,... More
