The day we went was wicked hot but there are several water features for the kids. The animals are all in very natural looking settings and were surprisingly active for such a hot day. Be forewarned that there are several things to do inside the park and THEY ALL COST EXTRA. For instance there is a carousel for the kids,... More

My kids loved this zoo. The turtles were HUGE, like I've never seen before. It was clean and animals looked well taken care of.

Although it was pouring the day I went, I saw many interesting animals. I only dislike how the bike rentals were mad expensive. Also, you get lost very easily and find yourself going around in circles. A lot of changes were made but I hope they finish fixing up the zoo. Recommend it.

This zoo was good for a half a day excursion. We saw many animals and the facility is laid out in a way that there are a lot of good views. There were a lot of active animals and baby animals! You get quite close to them, as compared to other zoos. They feature a groupon deal but I already... More

If you are a tourist to Miami, this is a wonderful must see attraction. The animals are gorgeous and healthy, and are in their natural habitat; no cages here! It's a great open space, with wide paths, so you are not bumping into people. Plan to spend the day. It's a BIG zoo! On one of our visits, we decided... More

This zoo can really take a chunk of your day, took amazing pictures of all the animals. Went for a trip and it rained ALL day literally. Yes this is a zoo of animals and they look so sad in the rain however whenever it stopped the animals looked so amazing so close. The highlight of this attraction was feeding... More

I'm not an activist and you won't find me standing outside with a sign... but I truly believe that animals should not be captured, encaged and put on display for us. Even though this provides a great opportunity for children to learn it's not fair for the animals. Just my $0.02.

I loved the zoo! I got a great deal on groupon for $14 which includes admission, bird and giraffe feeding, monorail pass and a souvenir cup. I couldn't feed the birds because it started pouring but I did get to feed the giraffes and it was an amazing experience. The souvenir cup is the best to drink anything even coffee.... More
