“Great Place for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Great place to take kids, the scheduled shows were fantastic and the tigers were gorgeous! My son thoroughly enjoyed it. It is not a big park so you can get around it in a morning or an afternoon.

“Colorful and exciting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

I love the Manu encounter, the birds and monkeys are soooo close. The shows are all great and enjoyable for the whole family. There is a petting zoo and you can purchase food for the animals there. Throughout the park there are birds which you can feed. All of them are really tame and sweet.

“City-style jungle”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Jungle Island is a bit of misnomer. This tourist attraction is on an island between Miami and Miami Beach in Biscayne Bay. But jungle? Well, it's a nicely landscaped walk in a pretty park with lots of parrots and some other animals. A bit disappointing. Size is small, all jungle paths are paved paths. But it is a nice "civilized city" version of a jungle, all within easy walking without breaking a sweat, unless you are there in July! I've been there a couple times. Best time is spring or fall or winter. Summer is quite hot and humid.

“bright and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

The garden and birds where great. It was exciting and enjoyable to walk through such a colorful and bright, natural tropical environment with the birds hanging out all over, and to be able to interact with the animals, and hold them. The shows where good and the place was clean.
