“Small place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This place is halfway between Miami and South Beach. Nice for a day trip but not as big as the Miami Zoo. Animals are limited. Parkind available. Public transportation available.

Jungle Island is an incredible oasis in the heart of Miami with an extraordinary collection of lions, tigers, lemurs, orangutans, parrots, etc. etc. Well worth the trip.

“Great way to spend a day with Family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Unlike the zoo, Jungle Island has a lot more covered space, epecially in the hot Florida sun have shade throughout your visit. It is very easy to navigate your way around the grounds. Very kid friendly, they can hold huge snakes, parrots, may other animals and they have two great petting zoo's. I recommend it for adults and children visiting South Florida. It's in a great location close to the beach. The entrance fee is a bit steep but it's worth it for a tourist attraction, check around you may find some on-line discounts.

“Jungle all the way !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The visit in Miami to Jungle Island was planned well in advance and we were looking forward to visit during our trip to Naples, Florida. It was about 1 and 1/2 hour drive from Naples, my advise however is to take Hwy41 versus Interstate 75 due to the fact that 75 is partly Toll and wiith the changes and construction of highway it can take its toll on your nerves. Finally arriving and the parking was nicely in a parking garage nd therefore the car remained cool during our visit $8.00 was not bad for the parking and was gladly paid. The park itself is amazing and so much wildlife can be found, it teaches children and even adults about all facts of wildlife and the experience will remain with you for the rest of your life. Entry fee was reduced due to some online coupons available by visiting smartsave.com this saved 20% well worth it go and enjoy it, its worth very penny.
