  • I been here a couple times. I love that the monkeys are so close to you that you could touch their hands and fingers. The also have raisins you could buy for 75 cents to feed the monkeys which makes the experience even better. The only reason I don't give it 5 starts it's because I wish it was bigger and had more exhibits.
  • Pretty fun place to take children. You can feed the monkeys for 75 cents in a bowl and they will pull it up with a chain. It appeared they had quite a bit of room, however the different types of monkeys were in pretty small exhibits. The place in general is small, but it was a fun experience.
  • It has a lot of diverse animals but the shows aren't what you expect and the atmosphere is definitely on point just watch out for poo and urine
  • Handicap accessible but not wheelchair friendly. :(( LOVED all the animals and cool people working there!
  • My husband and I are from New York and we decided to look into something rare and different. We came across Monkey Jungle in a magazine. Our experience was unlike any other. The staff was absolutely amazing and friendly. The experience was out of this world. We had monkeys come and eat out of our hands and climb on us like we were trees. I highly recommend this place if you are visiting Miami. I couldn't stop talking about this place. Amazing!!!!!
