Zoo Miami has come a long way over the years. It's been five years since my last visit and they now have a great water park for the kids which is perfect especially at this time of year in Miami when it's baking hot! There is a lot of walking at this zoo so be prepared or be prepared to shell out $30+ for a bicycle for 4-6 people with a canopy which does help. The zoo is well managed and the current critter cam exhibit is a riot. Lots of great animals, and there is an air conditioned monorail which you can ride all day for $3.00 (used to be free) but it is a long walk between stations. All in all I think it's great value for money and a great family day out.
