At $33 per person and $7 for parking, this place is no bargain. I arrived later in the day and was worried I wouldn't get to see all the exhibits. I walked through the entire park twice in less than 2 hours. The park is neat if you want to get up close, and possibly bitten, by parrots and similar... More

My family and I were excited to try out Jungle Island since none of us have ever been. We chose Thanksgiving weekend to go there. From the moment we got to the door, already we were experiencing problems. I have a 15 month old daughter who is an extremely picky eater. She is extremely underweight and will not just eat... More

We referenced tripadvisor.com (much like you're doing right... More

I'm surprised at the negative comments. I've been to Jungle Island twice in the past year and I had a great time on both visits. I was there over this past week-end and I found the staff to be very helpful. I was waiting for the bird show and put some money into a soda machine, but it turned out... More

It's not worth it!! The food and water are very expensive and they don't even have water fountains. Employees are very rude too. Miami metro zoo is a lot better and less expensive.

Jungle Island is not even worth paying a visit to once for the price they charge. Miami Metro-Zoo is far more of a great experience. There are very few animals, and the big high-lights like the liger aren't very visible because of the poor cages blocking the view. Of course they need to be in a secure area, but it... More

The natural animal settings were both relaxing and natural. My family loved the Parrots at the entrance we had a great family picture taken and the staff was fun and friendly. The Bird show was enjoyable and informative with a great mix of audience participation, once again the staff here was great. all of the exhibits were clean and fun... More

Dwidjaya-I I'm interested in what exactly happened to have you walk out. I was considering this place on my Florida trip this winter but it seems steep at $42.

This is the worst park in Miami and terrible does not even begin to describe my experience there. My family and I went to the park on Mother's Day and did not even make it inside. The ticket booth attendant was so rude to me in front of my child. When we complained to the manager, he did absolutely nothing... More
