We remember the old Parrot Jungle in south Miami on Old Cutler Road and the great family shows with Pinky and her crew. They put on some really nice presentations with the parrots and some assorted other animals but not so Jungle Island. I took an elderly gentleman in a wheel chair there a couple of times and we were... More

A horrible experience! No education at all, birds in small cages, some wild beast walking around and surprising the children. Bad practices with customers feeding the animals, very bad hygiene. Why does the vet services keep this place open?

Simply , OK is the best I can give Jungle Island. It was not an inherently bad experience, but definitely not worth paying full price. We used a Living Social deal and received a few extras with our admission that made it a bit more tolerable. Also, I have volunteered almost 20 years with big cats and other exotic animals;... More

I purchased a Living Social deal for Jungle Island. It was a great experience. The pictures with the parrots were great. Lots of monkeys to see. The liger , tigers and lions were also fascinating. Saw a cute show that actually had some information about penguins I didn't know. My 9 year old got her face painted and got to... More

I have nothing good to say here at all. I used to frequent the old Parrot jungle 20 years ago, it was full of flora and fauna and beautiful limestone pathways. Jungle island is surrounded by highways and is concrete and not at all the same feel as the place it replaced. Overpriced cafeteria food and snacks. Birds and animals... More

It was a nice experience. There were only three shows available 20 minutes long. The shows did not really impress me but i loved the up close experience with the animals. It was not at all expensive for 2 people. The beach looked so sad and the water park was just a floating obstacle course. I brought my beach wear... More
