“City-style jungle”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Jungle Island is a bit of misnomer. This tourist attraction is on an island between Miami and Miami Beach in Biscayne Bay. But jungle? Well, it's a nicely landscaped walk in a pretty park with lots of parrots and some other animals. A bit disappointing. Size is small, all jungle paths are paved paths. But it is a nice "civilized city" version of a jungle, all within easy walking without breaking a sweat, unless you are there in July! I've been there a couple times. Best time is spring or fall or winter. Summer is quite hot and humid.

“bright and beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

The garden and birds where great. It was exciting and enjoyable to walk through such a colorful and bright, natural tropical environment with the birds hanging out all over, and to be able to interact with the animals, and hold them. The shows where good and the place was clean.

“Neat attraction in Miami”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

I visited this cute zoo on a business trip to Miami. We had a great guide who took us through the major attractions. We were able to enter the kangaroo exhibit and visit with them up close ( the guide did tell us that this is not the type of temperament they would have in the wild)
They have a beautiful big cat exhibit that includes a majestic lion and white tigers.
They offer shows in their amphitheater with several animals at various times each day
Gift shop has a lot of fun souvenirs and trinkets.
Beautiful birds that they do a photo op with when you enter-pictures are ready for purchase on the way out.
