Great place for kids. It's like a zoo but no really a zoo. I loved to see the big turtle, the lion and the amazing shows of parrots. We liked it too much.

How have I never been to this place before! Do you love interacting with animals? Do you get frustrated with the "don'ts - don't pet the goats (in the petting zoo) near their heads - only on their bodies, don't pet the alpaca on their bodies - only on their necks, don't touch the snake we're holding, don't look at...

On holiday in Miami and saw a brochure for Jungle Island. Decided to check it out and we were pleasanty surprised that this place existed. Photos with parrots and a snake on entry, which you were not pestered into buying. The petting area was great with its goats, red kangaroos and tortoises. The two giant tortoises were amazing, they dont... More

Very disappointing, very few animals, small enclosures, a bit run down, needs upgrading, and I hated the alligator you could pose with for a picture with its taped mouth, wrong in every way. One of the worst I've seen and I've been to many.

Lemurs was that we liked the most! Daily ticket did not include lemurs, we paid for them additionally. Also you can go lemurs without having a general park admission, because there was a separate entrance for them. The price of premium annual pass, including one lemur encounter was the same as buying a daily ticket and lemur ticket separately. We... More

Went with my friends and their kids (5-6 years). We all enjoy it! Great presentation of wild and dangerous animals. Nice exhibitions of birds (variety) and the parrots were all over the park without being in cages! Loved it!

We went primarily so that my wife could have a lemur and sloth experience, which "we" did. The lemur experience was obviously the best, as you have 4 lemurs running around and climbing all over you. She is still smiling...days after. The place is well-maintained and all of the staff are very nice and engaging.

We had not been here for 5 years and got a 2 for 1 deal on admission. My 3 year old granddaughter loved holding the parrot for a photo op. The shows were great! I loved the African crested porcupine and Alana's favorite were the flamingos. She fed and brushed the goats at the petting zoo. We patted the kangaroos.... More

Dear Jorge, What a bummer to hear! Jungle Island is home to over 450 animals and provides hours of fun via numerous animal exhibits, three shows, surprise critter encounters and our private beach.
