Jungle Island, Miami

3.1
Interact with tropical birds, see a tiger show, or visit the Everglades Habitat to further explore Florida's ecosystems at Jungle Island. Such famous guests as Winston Churchill and President Jimmy Carter have visited this zoo, which originally opened in 1936 as Parrot Jungle. In addition to animal shows and exhibitions, the park also provides visitors with opportunities for live animal encounters at its petting zoo. A few of the zoo's most popular attractions are its Parrot Bowl, which hosts the Winged Wonders bird show, and a 408 kg (400 lb) liger (combination lion and tiger). Jungle Island is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Miami Edition.

  • Too expensive for what you get. We paid over $300 for two adults and three children. We went anticipating their new and upgraded experiences but was not ready yet. We were looking forward to the water...  more »

  • It's okay. Good for free hours only. The water slides are very basic, nothing fancy. There are inflatable. When we went, one out of two wasn't even working. Bird show was good. Rest was all mediocre. You can feed birds at the park too. They do have some fancy entry bands.
  • The park was good! Still missing a few animals after the hurricane last year but the combination of animals and water park for the kids was great! The one thing that impressed me more than anything was the staff. Everyone was so helpful and willing to do anything they could to ensure that we had the best time possible!! Great experience and we will be back.
  • They have a petting area, where you can feed the goats. My daughter loved it. They are still making improvements. But if you enjoy taking your kids for a learning day out , this is a nice place to go. Has plenty of shade and shows. They have parrots and monkeys a large tortoise. They have an area for the kids to get wet with slides. Definetly look into mosquito season before going so you can enjoy yourself.
  • VIP tour with Ryan, worth every penny. During construction you can get their $500/600 tour for $300. You won't be disappointed. You really get a 1:1 experience with the animals. The only people on your tour are you and your guide. You get to touch, feed and learn about the most amazing animals. Ryan is a must! He knows all the animals and their origin stories. It's obvious that the animals know and love him based on how excited they are to see him. Ryan also knows tons of awesome animal facts and creates a personalized tour based on what you are interested in. I would caution against very young children going on the tour as it would be difficult for them to stay calm during the animal interactions. You do get to touch and feed the animals and containing that level of joy can be hard.
  • Went there today with my kids. Good for all ages. Massive water slides, really cool ambiance. Feels like summer in the jungle. We had fun. Kids loved it and grow ups too. Can’t wait to try the wind tunnel and zip line!
