I visited there a couple of months ago taking my son there. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. Parking is not free and the admission price is ridiculously high, seems they are more interested in selling season passes to the locals than have a reasonable entry price. While this new location seems larger than the old location named... More

This isn't Orlando standard but nevertheless it is a good half day activity just off South Beach Miami. The shows are a bit tame but well presented and the gardens are filled with colourful parrots. We did enjoy it, but perhaps a bit overpriced considering the extra price of parking.

Compared to Zoological Wildlife Foundation (interactive animal experience) and Theater of the Sea (swimming with sea animals), Jungle Island ranked as mediocre. We have a 7 & 10 year old and while the bird show was fantastic, the rest of it felt like a rip off for the money. The animals are all in tiny cages and every turn has... More

Jungle Island is a great place for adults and kids. It has been a tradition for 79 years and counting. On 1936, the park opened for the first time to the public and in 1939 they introduced the first bird show. In 2003 they opened their first Liger exhibit and in 2011 a brand new leopard exhibit, housing a melanistic... More

We spent the morning at Jungle Island, on one of their VIP tours. It's a once in a lifetime experience, completely worth the expense. Ryan Jacobs, our guide, was incredibly gracious, knowledgable and fun. He was great with my 6 year old twins, who were spellbound the entire time. When we arrived, Ryan looked me in the eyes and asked,... More

The VIP tour was truly an awesome experience where we got to go behind the scene of most of the attractions. Ross did an incredible job guiding my partner and I through the Park! We started the tour with Lemurs that were very playful! We then were able to feed and interact with Kangaroos and even fed a little Joey!... More

A very pleasant day! Plenty of animals to see. Not too busy. Decent shows. Good location if you are travelling between Miami beach and Miami city itself.
