Great fun for the kids and the kids at heart. Only don't do it in July, the heat was unbelievable. Wished it had more interactive activities, but the animals were amazing.

This zoo is great!! Be prepared though - it is very large! the views of the animals are incredible though!! I couldn't believe how close we got and how much space there was to see the animals! we went on July 4th and it was awesome! Wasn't overly crowded but super hot!

I wasn't very excited to visit Zoo Miami. We go to the Bronx Zoo about once a month and just been there. I'm so glad we opted to visit Zoo Miami though. The zoo had a great variety of animals. They were really moving around - the elephants, rhinos, lions and gorilla's were really active and it was exciting to... More

I have to congratulate the city of Miami for such a beautiful zoo they have. It look like they really take care of the animals and I like that.

-Zoo is under major construction so big number of exhibits are closed. No wonder 2/3 of the parking lot was empty. Very few animals to see. Signage poor. Crew not helping if you can find any around. -Gauging to the higher degree, everything is paid extra: train to come back 3 miles to the entrance $3 p/p ( used to... More

The only real problem with the zoo is that there is a lot of small insects around the animals, which like to bite you. After... More

This is a wonderful zoo - the enclosures are very well thought out for the most part, and you can really get wonderful unobstructed views of the wildlife throughout the park. We especially loved the Asian River Life, Amazon, Gorillas, and Tiger exhibits - although everything else was awesome as well. If you aren't from Miami, make sure that you... More

Thank God I have a 7yr old nephew, so it's the perfect excuse to keep going back to the Zoo Miami! Over the years we've witnessed renovations and new attractions, always something new, always fun! There are many options to move around like the mono-rail or renting a bike, though we always prefer to walk... it's a great place to... More
