Owner description: Jungle Island is located between downtown Miami and South Beach. The park offers amazing animal exhibits, unique shows and up-close animal interactions unlike anywhere else.
Useful Information: Activities for young children

A really neat and unconventional "zoo" that lets you interact with the animals more- probably not the best idea for the animals or people but I enjoyed it. There is a Lemur tour that is at additional cost but definitely worth it. There is also an option to spend 15 minutes with a baby tiger. I felt a little bad for the animals being handled a lot.

We took advantage of the Florida Resident special that is happening the last 2 weekend of Sept. We saw pretty much every inch of Jungle Island in less than 1.5 hours - the monkeys, ligers, tigers, flamingos, petting farm, turtles, kangaroos, birds and even a nice 15 min show. We decided to eat at the cafe and it was the WORST food ever. My veggie burger was boiling hot but the bun was ICE cold. I could barely choke down the veggie burger. Overall it was an average experience and not a place that we would go back and see again.

This is a great place to visit. Especially if you are into photography. The birds and scenery are full of color so your pictures really come out great. Kids love it and it's a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon

This zoo-like park is close to the cruise port, so it's not a bad place to spend some time before/after your cruise. I wouldn't really go for fun as it's much more expensive than ZooMiami.
