The park is very small. They do have a great gift shop. The park is not worth what you pay!!!!!! It cost almost $30 for adult and $25 for my 7 year old daughter. We were finished with the park in 30 mins. We were done so quick we went decided to go 2 miles down the road and visit... More

Unfortunately was expecting a lot more. The staff at front was just down right rude and obnoxious. The place is very small for the price of 30$. WE expecting a lot more. Little value for your money

The animals have amazing exhibits and the people are the ones in cages. They have little dishes attached to chains that drop down from the top of the cage people walk through. People can buy sunflower seeds to drop in the dishes, then the monkeys pull the chains up and pick the seeds out of the dish and drop the... More

An absolutely amazing experience! To see these animals in their environment, to be able to walk through and interact with the, to be able to feed them and learn about them was truly awesome. Definite recommend.

I stopped in to Monkey Jungle on a tour of some of the older FL tourist attractions and was really surprised by how fun it was! As mentioned, the main draw is the long path where monkeys are free to roam above a caged tunnel where humans walk. For 75 cents you can buy raisins to feed the monkeys. You... More

We added this stop to our West Palm Beach vacation before heading out of Miami. My husband loves monkeys so it seemed like a perfect fit. It is a small park with not a lot to see. They do have a couple of "shows" but they are more just talks about the animals. They give you a box a raisins... More

So to get in here it's $29.95 I believe, and the park is TINY. Not worth the money at all. We did love that you interact with monkeys your entire time through the cages. The monkeys stick their hands through the fence and u can place food in their hands, so that's kind of cool- We sprung for the $89.95... More

Drove up from Tampa to Miami just to see our dream -Monkey Jungle. The front desk girl did NOT accept the Coupon we presented. The rain started and main areas was closed. The stuff didn't even informed that actually nothing to see. Finally, we realized that we shouldn't take such a long trip just to make a donation to this... More

I have been to Monkey Jungle twice mainly for both of my teenage daughters. The first time was more fun because we arrived early and have a lot of fun feeding raisins to the monkeys. We arrived around 3pm the second time and all the monkeys are full so they basically ignore it when we dropped raisins into the holder.... More

I visited with my family and we absolutely loved feeding the monkeys. Living in Florida we are always in the heat but with no fans throughout the paths it was extra hot. It was also pretty expensive but they do have yearly passes available. The front desk girl Gabby was not friendly, did not say hello when we entered, did... More
