This troop and the other 30 species of primates now roam freely among the trees. Catch sight of their playful swinging and curious exploring as you walk through the protected area. Ask about monkey feeding times when you enter. For a better value, visit the attraction's website for a discount coupon.

  • this was a great adventure and learning experience. we humans are in a cage and the monkeys roam free, its their home. I learned quite a bit from all of shows that are given appx. 4. which is for ever...  more »
  • I have visited it several times. It is perfect for children. The interesting thing is that humans are enclosed and free monkeys. You walk through tunnels made of wire mesh. You give food to the monkeys, watching them swim, look at gorillas and orangutans, etc.

  • Although the place a little out of reach well worth the journey. The basic package offers 4 experience (one of these need a further payment). The 3 free experiences are very interesting and also along the way as well as being able to see different animals like turtles or birds you can hand feed (charged) to monkeys, something I had never seen in a "zoo" before. The only downside I found is the price, maybe a little excessive considering the additional costs of the activities within the Park.

  • It's a nice half day activity. They sell boxes of raisins for feeding the monkeys. My 3 year old loved it.
  • Great experience with family. Entrance is more expensive than the zoo but its less than half the size. Animals seem to be happy and well fed.
  • 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.
  • - Amazing place for the kids and adults too ! - Have a close experience with the monkeys and feed them - staff was great and provided a lot of new information and facts - Free Parking
  • Awesome! You get to interact with the monkeys @the guides are very good at informing you about the monkeys @answer all questions! Great place to visit

Where to stay in Miami

Miami's South Beach boasts one of the largest collections of boutique hotels in the country. Though it can be quite expensive, staying in this area ensures proximity to the city's best shoreline, clubs, shopping, and restaurants, not to mention Art Deco buildings. Mid-Beach and downtown also make great places to stay, offering some superb apartment rentals and small hotels, though the neighborhoods are not as glamorous as South Beach. If you're traveling on a budget, avoid the high season during winter months. If money is no object, get a room with a view before it gets too hot along the famous stretch of Collins Avenue between 15th and 23rd Street.
