I really think the animals were not happy in Jungle Island. Literally the whole time I was almost in tears watching the big cats (Lynx, tigers, leopards) pacing back and forth I think think over all the animals have a really small exhibits and look miserable. I will never go back to Jungle Island.

We went to the lemur experience and played with baby lemurs! You have to do this! Then, we held a baby bengal tiger, and learned all about them! We paid a small amount of money to play with red kangaroos. You can interact with the animals and the whole park is in the shade. We saw tons of animals and... More

Way more expensive than the zoo but way cooler if you have the money and like interacting with animals. The exhibits are standard so make sure you catch the actual shows. That's where the magic happens. Also go for the opportunities to touch and pose with animals. When you enter they pose you will various birds or other critters and... More

My son and his girlfriend came to visit me in Miami in early March (they are both 21 years old) while on their college spring break. My son loves lemurs so we stumbled upon the Lemur encounter on the internet and Jungle Island (we were searching to see if any of the local zoos had lemurs). I had never been... More

I just visited a couple of days ago. It was a fun experience, but was definitely way overpriced, even with the coupon. We definitely won't be back! Holding the parrots was fun, but definitely wasn't worth an admission of over $30, plus the $8 charge for parking! I felt like the website was definitely misleading. The website shows pictures of...

You're better off going to the Miami Zoo. Jungle Island just isn't worth the money - there's only so many parrots you can look at. You will also feel bad that you paid money to keep these great creatures in such small enclosures. Shows were short but the staff were knowledgeable and helpful. Food at the cafe is best avoided...

I came with the family back in December for the Winter Wonderland days because I had purchased Groupon tickets. My expectations were not met (very crowded and the snow experience was a separate charge), but at least I received a coupon to come back during the day with the family. There is a flat fee for parking, which is a... More

With kids you can cover the place with very less walking but the number of animals are very limited but very good, little expensive though
