“Fun Outing- But Expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I feel that Jungle Island is very expensive for what is offered. The park is nice and the best part is that there is a lot of shade. We went in the summer and it didn't feel as bad as it could have. The shows are nice and my kids enjoyed it, but I don't think it's worth the $30+ to get in. It's not easy for a family of 4 to afford.

“A good activity for kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a lovely, lush spot in which to spend a couple of hours with the family. Across the street(or highway) from the Miami Children's museum, it makes a nice day of activities for the family. They have a nice animal show and my grandkids and son-in-law loved getting photographed with a real tiger cub. It is a relaxing day.

“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.
