The Zoo is great but we didn't realize how big it was and thought we could walk the whole place during the summer heat! (we only made it half way). Overall it was a great experience but for next time we would rent one of the bikes so that we can see all the animals.

Great diversity!! • Great activities for kids!! • Beautifully designed natural habitats!! • Admission price was fair! ($17 per person from... More

Excellent zoo, I saw animals I never see before, well keep and the animals have big spacious areas, you have to go early if you want to appreciate everything there.

This zoo was great, but there was several exibits closed. Highlight of the trip was feeding a rhino. (Our daughter's all time favorite animal). Pay attention to the park map because the restrooms seem to be all on one side of the park. The bikes they have to ride seem cool but be careful that you aren't ran over. Pedestrians,... More

The animals have lots of space, which is nice. That also makes the park very large. We were there on a hot summer day and it was just too much for us (and especially our 8-year old) to cover. We had a nice time, but if you want to see it all consider using two days ther, or rent a... More

Zoo Miami is really fun and nice but you have to be prepared if you're going during the summer because it's brutally HOT! I also advise you to rent a bike because Zoo Miami is huge!! You'll probably buy water couple of times too so it would be smart to bring your own water even if they say it's not... More

Bought the tickets with the unlimited air conditioned monorail, it was useless, can't see any of the animals over the high trees and foliage and the compartments were not that much cooler than outside. Wish we had gone for the bike. As you come in, signs say no outside food so we left our bag. Once you go in, you... More

We just love the Miami Zoo! My son is in a wheelchair and the zoo is flat and very easy to get around. It has very low fences and pits so if you are handicap you can see all the animals up close, we even got to feed a rhino and giraffe. Beautiful flowers and plants and you can get... More

The zoo is nice because everything is well spaced out for spectators walking around and there are a bunch of deals to make the pricing cheaper. My friend had an annual pass which helped me save 5 dollars on my ticket. We went dressed really sporty and that honestly helped since temperatures in Florida get really unbearable. Luckily, they have... More

We rented a bicycle for four and made our way around the park in three hours. Stopping at the animals areas and seeing them sometimes ignore us and other times taking advantage of our presence. We took pictures of the signage so that we can recall the type of animal it is and them taking their pictures when they were... More
