With a 7 hour layover, we didn't want to wait in the airport, so we grabbed a rental car and headed for the zoo. Fifteen minutes later we were enjoying the sunshine. I thought the admission rates were very reasonable and everyone seemed to have coupons, so I am sure with a little hunting, we could have found some (Entertainment Book).
Animals were all out and clearly visible. There are water comfort stations along the way to cool you off as you are walking. I would suggest renting the bike taxis, especially if you have smaller children; we underestimated the loop around.
The facility was clean and there were food and drink options every few minutes. I thought the water play areas were a nice feature too. All and all a great way to spend an afternoon. I also appreciated the free parking! Good job Zoo Miami!
