“Delighted grandkid”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Young and old all found something to like at Jungle Island. Not showy like Disney or Seaworld, but very entertaining and educational. Three main animal shows (birds, wild cats, various reptile creatures & penguins) were all well done. You can interact with beautiful birds, monkeys, kangaroos, and farm animals.

In all this is an excellent place to visit for a reasonable price.

“If you like animals, especialy parrots, MUST VISIT!!!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Entrance is $35 each person, but you will not regret it. $8 parking/flat fee.
I was there with my wife, and I was amazed. It was such a huge place, and so many beautiful animals. The best thing for us was to feed the parrots. They have so many kinds. You can feed ones in the cage too. The best to feed the parrots was close to entrance. You buy birds food 25 cents, and get a full hand. Some parrots aren't in the cage, which you can feed as long as you like. We didn't see any shows, it was really for kids.
We were never in such a place, where you can see so many parrots and feed them. Very friendly and so funny!!!
Will go there again definitely!!!! Money well spend.

“Good”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Few very interesting species exposed. Quite good contact with animals but you feel it is very commercial.

“Too expensive for what you get”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

You pay more tan $35 per person (including 3 year old kids) and what you get is a small place, with poor variety of animals and awfull shows.

“We are back each year”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

This place is so special and great to go with kids. My 6 year old son loves it so much that we have to go twice in a week each time we are in Miami. It is not as big as the Miami Zoo and the navigation is therefore much easier. The shows are always interesting and we see animals that we did not even know existed. It is one of a kind, don't miss the Lemur experience where you are seated in a room and can touch them - I am not sure you can do that anywhere else!!
