  • Can’t say I could recommend. 3 stars maybe a stretch. Could probably get a similar show at a zoo for the same or lower price plus all the other animals.  more »

  • Must be honest - when reading the reviews, we were nervous about making the trip to South Miami to visit. But after visiting, we were beyond happy that we did. We went for Valentine's Day weekend and had the best, best, best time. If you really want to make it over the top, pay the extra to have the monkey excursion. It was FANTASTIC. You go in the back and get interactive with the monkeys. It was one of the most fun I've ever had in my life. The place as a whole is small, the shows are pretty decent, but it is really a unique place and we had a blast!
  • What an absolutely incredible experience! I’m a native Floridian but somehow I only recently learned of this hidden gem. It’s an experience unlike any other. The guides were so kind and friendly, the grounds were beautiful, and the shows were entertaining and informative. I especially loved that they are conservation focused and not just gimmicky or touristy. I felt like we could truly experience the monkeys in THEIR element.
  • This was an interesting place, the paths are a little difficult to navigate with a stroller but it worked. The money's at the monkey pool didn't show up for the afternoon feeding since it has been a busy day. It was worth a fun afternoon with the family.
  • Quite the hilarious experience! Although not cheap ($29 for Adults), it is worth the price of admission. Plan on spending about two hours, walking around and feeding all sorts of monkeys and apes; highly recommend buying a couple packs of raisins ($1 per pack) and feeding the monkeys and tamarinds on the left side!
  • Not wheelchair accessible unless you have a big strong person to push the chair through mulch. Went today with my husband and my mother in law, she is not a big woman and has a new wheel chair that usually rolls like a dream but I wasn't able to push here through the mulch and the cheap mats they had down just roll up in front of the wheel chair. The mats were so bad my husband elected push her through the mulch. He's a strong man but it was all he can do to push in some spots, we had to get on either side of the chair and lift her at a few spots.
