Need transportation from South Beach to Monkey Jungle

Coming in Nov 8-10, pre-cruise. Daughter wants to visit Monkey Jungle. I know it is an hour away and do not want to rent a car just to go to that one attraction. How would our family of 3 get there and back without breaking the bank? Is there a method of public transportation to get us quite close and then perhaps have a cheaper taxi ride the rest of the way? Are there any tour companies that go there? Thanks so much for your detailed help, much appreciated.

I don't think it's practical by public transport. You can enter your starting and ending points at the Dade county public transit website (use the tab marked "Trip Planner"). The address for Monkey jungle is 14805 Southwest 216th St., Miami.

It will take you about 2 hours each way, and even then you have to cab the last three miles or so. A taxi all the way will run about $80 each way. A rental car for the day seems to be the best option.

Cannot seem to find a tour company that includes the Monkey Jungle. And there is NO public transport closer than about 2 miles. And that location is not an easy place to find a cab. A one day rental does appear to be the best option.

Dear cornmom67,

Unfortunately, renting a car for the day is your best and somewhat only choice.

Using public tranportation, while not impossible may take over 2 hours and would require switching different kinds of public transportation, walking, and also catching a taxi. There is not a not a single public transportation transit that can take you there from Miami Beach.

You should definitely check-out the Jungle Monkey website, as they offer discount coupons there you may want to take advantage of: http://www.monkeyjungle.com/
