“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.

“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.
