I travel quite a bit and often move making Homeschooling the best option for my children. We saw that the park was homeschool friendly and took the kids as they were visiting me while I was in Miami on business. The park and staff were incredible. The kids as well as myself and my wife enjoyed our visit. We got... More

My family and I are visiting my husband while he is on a business trip. Since we are homeschoolers we school every where we go, and we are always looking for an opportunity to learn. We came across this place on tripadvisor, and at first I thought it was way too expensive. But I called them and since we are... More

This place was recommended in the AAA Guidebook. We are glad we went. There are marvelous displays of all kinds of birds and animals, including presentations in special arenas. We saw presentations and exhibits of tropical birds and tigers. This is a wonderful place for children. The on-site restaurant is a bit pricey, but the food was very good.

A short drive from Miami Beach, this attraction is in a pleasant setting, with well kept grounds, meandering paths and attractive kid's playground. However, it is little more than a mini zoo. We were through with the place in less than 2 hours and the experience set us back more than $150. That's $10 for parking and admission fees for... More

Great location right downtown Miami, a quarter mile offshore. Well maintained, large attraction. But we walked most of it with 3 and 7 year olds, in about four hours (that included lunch). You really can get up close and personal. We went in the kangaroo enclosure and patted them, went in a combined tortoise/goat enclosure (odd but fun!), and sat... More

Just visited today for a VIP tour - worth coming to Miami for just Jungle Island. Beautiful, super clean location with animals who are clearly loved and cared for. I had the good fortune to do the ultimate VIP tour with Ryan, from whom I learned more about animals than I have ever known. Not only is he knowledgeable, he... More

Very small, expensive, poor shows, good collection of birds, but very limited variety of animals.. Entry fee is $50 - too much for such kind of adventure

So I had some misgivings about going to a non-accredited zoo, but the animals and birds here seem to be respected and treated well. Their habitats seem sufficient for their sizes. That said, my kids LOVED feeding all the macaws, watching the animal shows and going into the petting zoo. It was very hot the day we went, but there... More

Very nice place to take the kids if you don't want to do to the zoo (which is huge and very tiring). The shows are fun (not excellent) and the kids can feed a lot of birds around the park and even enter the kangooro place. Don't miss the flamingo Lake, it is beautiful.

Hello Cristiana, Thank you for your review of Jungle Island. As you mentioned, our park is smaller than many zoos, which gives us the opportunity to provide our visitors with up-close-and-personal experiences with some of the world’s most rare animals. In addition, we have three shows to choose from that are presented several times a day, and depending on your... More

I brought my son here and had an excellent time. It's not a city zoo and it's not Disneyland. It's somewhat low frills, but ultimately it's really fun. The kids will love the fact that there are iguanas running about, some animals don't have cages, so you can get face to face with a little monkey. They also have orangutans... More
