“Great family place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

We went to this place after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. Our family loved it and it was one of the better days we had as a group. We were 15 people traveling together and it isn't always easy to please so many ages. Everyone loved Monkey Jungle. The kids loved dropping the raisins into the cup and watching the monkeys pull them up. It provided endless giggles. The monkeys here are very active and you will love watching them run around.

It is good to get there early in the morning when the monkeys are hungry. We found they more active when we first got there. Either way, it was a very fun morning at Monkey Jungle.

“Fun place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

This was a fun place to visit. We decided to do the rainforest tour and was able to feed the squirrel monkeys first hand. They are so adorable and jump on you and eat out of your hands. Great experience to be able to be able to interact with them. We also enjoyed walking around the park and feeding the monkeys through the cups and they pull them up with the chain and eat the sunflower seeds.

“Is it raining or...?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Monkey Jungle is kind of cool and kind of hooky… Moneys run wild and the humans are caged. What a concept! Monkeys can be fed from little ports that they drop down from the chain link tunnel in which you walk. You gotta be very ALERT as the little primates have a tendency to go number 1 and sometimes number 2 over head. Interesting sights of old sink holes and native landscaping of Florida. All in all it’s a once in a life time place as I don’t think I’ll ever go back.

“MONKEYS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

this place is great because the monkeys run free and the people are caged. Wear a HAT!! your not supposed to bring your own Monkey food to feed the monkeys. They have diving monkeys also.
