“A Must to Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

The Miami Zoo is quite large. Wear comfortable walking shoes. The giraffes are amazing! It is quite hot and humid in the summer months so drink plenty of water. The zoo is child friendly/stroller accessible. There is food that can be purchased there. The cost to get in for one adult was almost $50. There is a lot of parking available. Obviously, the sooner you arrive to opening time, the more up close parking you will get. There are gift shops on the grounds. The earlier in the day that you go, the less people and the less intense sun rays. Do bring sun screen. The Miami Zoo is a must as it is quite awesome for animal lovers!

“Lots of animals that I have never seen before!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

My husband and I are both in our mid 60's and we still enjoy going to the zoo. This zoo is one of the best we have ever seen. It's huge-the trail is about 3 miles long but you can rent cycles if you'd prefer not to walk. We went right after a rain storm so the park had emptied out, the animals were all outside enjoying the cooler weather and we were able to get first hand views of nearly all the animals!

“Great family fun...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

I am a repeat visitor to Zoo Miami and I am sure I shall be back several more times... I love these outdoor fun times with my family and as such this is definitely a location whenever I have a couple hours extra in Miami with my family. I enjoy riding the 4 wheel cycles with my family while we explore the Zoo. That is what makes this Zoo so different from others... Will be back again soon!

“So so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Too much hype, coll ads, but not too much to see, especially with a 8 y/o. Excellent food, but not really "CEVICHE", great service.
