Rate this Zoo right up there with the San Diego Zoo. We did a weekday and was not crowded at all. There are discounts for seniors and 2 and under are free. The zoo is massive which means be prepared to walk for miles. Proper shoes, sunscreen, hats for the little ones come in handy, along with your own beverages.... More

We purchased our tickets off groupon which included admission the the park, a souvenir cup, a free giraffe or parrot feeding, a carousol ride, and an all day pass to ride the monorail all for $20 bucks a ticket. I encourage everyone to look on groupon for... More

Zoo Miami is a spacious zoological garden with spacious areas and natural settings for the myriad of animals living there. There is also a wet play area for children who may need a break or want to cool off. During the summer it is best to skip the hottest part of the day. There are multi-passenger pedal-cars allowing visitors a... More

Great Zoo! It's huge though so make sure you wear comfy shoes. There was so much to see there, plan on spending the whole day. The one bad thing...hot day NO ice cream anywhere, the kids were not happy! Overall we all had a great time and will return for sure!

Plenty to see here! Do see the shows at 11 & 3. Bigger than I thought, so I recommend using the bicycle carriages, particularly with young or older guests. You can only see the cheetahs in the shows, wish they were more accessible. The animals are obviously well cared for.

We visited the Miami Zoo in mid August which definitely wasn't the best time of year to go to the zoo. Many of the animals, birds, etc were avoiding the heat which is what we should have done. In any case, we did see the baby zebra and it was adorable. And it was also fun to watch the young... More

This zoo is huge - be prepared to walk for a couple of hours, bring good shoes and water and a backpack with snacks. - and may want to rent... More
