“Beautiful Birds!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Worth the price of admission because we would hope a large portion of this goes toward caring for the residents (animals!) We highly recommend a visit--my teenage son loved it!

“Great Kids and Adults Attraction!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

As a post activity to our recent cruise, we spent an extra night in Miami with our grandkids (6 and 10) and their parents. Took in the Jungle Island Park and very happy with our choice! The unique opportunity to see many species of animals and birds that you don't see in typical zoos was great. The three shows we saw witht he handlers and trainers were also fun. Very hot and humid that day and loads of summer camp kids and counselors but we still enjoyed the visit
They do take AAA / AARP discount for tickets so ask! Easy to get around the paved trails and lots of shade to help as well. While I agree price was still steep for 6 of us - the smiles andpictures witht he kids and the white tiger cub as well as baby alligator and many colorful parrots was worth it.

“Not very exciting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Over priced and not very exciting. The park is nice with lots of trees. The Flamingos are cool so are the parrots. There is an emphasis on getting your picture taken with the animals, lot's of optional ways to spend money. The pictures on the website are better than the real thing. It was OK, just over priced

“Fun even for a 26 year old.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

I love this place, it makes me happy & I love that you're so close with the animals, there are many that you can feed, pet and touch and even get some great pictures with.

I can't wait until I have children so that I can bring them here.

“Jungle Island is a Joke”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Way too expensive for what you get. This mini-attraction between downtown Miami and Miami Beach requires taking out a bank loan for a few hours of family "fun." Stay away. Save your money for Disney World.
