“Good shows and nice place to take your kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

You must see the huge cocrodile that lives there! also the shows are pretty good! Specially when the birds fly on top of your head!

Food is expensive and they should think more about offering better prices or more value!

“Jungle Island - Formerly Parrot Jungle”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The staff here were very bubbly and happy, but sadly a lot was left to be desired from the Island itself.

The layout is confusing. We were 7 adults and 4 kids and managed to go round in circles. Twice. As other reviewers have stated - there aren't many animals here. That's fine. The issue we had was that the animals that were here had very little space to live in.

The shows were fine, and again, full of energy but not something that my kids (3 and 5) enjoyed.

Overall it was a fun day despite the small cages and the copious opportunities that the Island took to scrape more money from us!

“Stay for all of the shows!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Jungle Island was an excellent place to visit while staying in Miami. There are numerous of exciting shows with different kinds of animals. They are all pretty short so itis definitely worth seeing all of them while you are there. One of the shows include baby tigers where you can pay $50 to hold and take a picture. Feeding different kinds of parrots was the best part. But do watch out for the ones who bite!

“SPECTACULAR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

From the breathtaking view of the bay, to the superbly cared for animals, the exquisite vegetation and the delightfully informed and gregarious staff, Parrot Jungle is one of my favorite places in the world. We even had the chance to meet and speak with Dr. Jason Chatfield, veterinarian extraordinaire, in charge of the care of the plethora of exotic species at this park. I rate this park right up there with any of the BIG Florida attractions and it is less than half the price. They have a play ground for the kids, the chance for your little ones to pet a kangaroo or sit on the back of a 100 year old tortoise. Meet Hannah, the Orangatan fashionista (loves clothes and will smile for the camera on cue) or stand in complete awe of the magnificent and incredibly rare tawny and white tigers and lions. You will see birds here that you will probably never see anywhere else in the US. Be sure to visit the Flamingo park to meet the little guy who honks until you let him eat from your hand. Stop off to visit with their breathtaking Black Palm Cockatoo and laugh while he pushes a stick out at you then waits for you to give it back. Feed the many Macaws and Cockatoos spread out over every inch of this amazing garden. This is an experience that will leave you with lasting memories and a burning desire to go back, and I'm not kidding. I'm heading back myself next week, I just can't stay away :)
