A few colleagues and friends of mine decided to venture off to Jungle Island--none of us had been since it was known as Parrot Jungle years ago. We partook in the Go Wilder VIP Tour and had the most amazing time, thanks to the staff and Ryan in particular. His knowledge, passion, and connection with these creatures was just absolutely...

As a young man from New York City (not too comfortable being around animals) - our guide Ryan made me feel safe, while engaged. It was a group of 6 of us, and Ryan never forced anyone do anything they didn't want to do, while always leaving the chance to join if we changed our mind. He is a fascinating... More

Great family fun but recommend for smaller kids. Teenagers will like the animals but the shows are geared towards small kids. It is a smaller park, but very well maintained and the animals seem well cared for in a humane manner. Very centrally located to Miami and South Beach, so it will fit in nicely to a vacation in those... More

Great place to see animals. I loved the kangaroos and did pay extra to have a meet and greet with the lemurs. This was unforgettable I truly enjoyed the experience. FYI for two adults zoo admission and lemur experience totaled $188. Budget accordingly ;) enjoy!!

We make sure to visit jungle island a few times a year with our kids because it's an amazing day for everyone. First of all with an annual pass (you don't have to be a florida resident ) it only costs a bit more so it's really worthwhile, parking is included with it , beach slides and inflatables are included...

Parrots, snakes, ligers, tortoises, goats, penguins, snakes, orangutans, and red kangaroos are some of the animals that you will encounter during your visit to Jungle Island. There is a swimming area at a beach along the waterfront at the far end of the park. The majority of the park in under a canopy of treed and palms so you are... More

We enjoyed the bird show and petting the red kangaroos most of all. There are tigers, monkeys, penguins, and tortoises as well as lots of birds. The too-loud dj exhorting people to dance was completely unnecessary. Enjoyed walking in the enclosure where the parrots flew all around us. Easy to get to, easy parking, and pleasant gift shop. The bird... More
