Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
Florida’s oldest zoological garden, Zoo Miami is home to over 2,000 animals across more than 100 exhibits. An air-conditioned monorail takes a loop around the zoo and is a comfortable and convenient way to get around the site, providing an aerial view of some exhibits. There are four main areas of the zoo: Asia, Africa, Amazon and beyond, and Australia. Those who want to experience animals up close can brush an Indian rhinoceros or feed a giraffe for an additional fee. For more information about the zoo and its animals, take a narrated tram ride or guided tour. For Zoo Miami and beyond, use our Miami family vacation planner to get the most from your Miami vacation.

  • Taking advantage of the holiday of my daughter with my little granddaughter, we visited the Miami Zoo. It was an experience incredible enjoyed watching animals eat in hand giving to giraffes. Very good shuttle service, advise them buy the complete package so you can take the train when they tired in the next stop. There is a large restaurant where you can have lunch and is not expensive also there are places for children playing with water and also frills for cooling. Us charm it enjoyed much do not miss it.

  • Recommend to visit. Rent velorikshu and forward. 3:00 entirely on driving with stops, all the animals we saw giraffe fed. Better to go on a weekday, the people a bit and very comfortable. There are shady paths, so even on a hot day is where to take refuge from the heat. Kids are happy!

  • Loved it!!! The Zoo is clean, the staff is very attentive and knowledgeable. They will answer any questions that you may have about the Zoo and the animals. The animals look very healthy and have a great appearance. They have a water park for kids and a nice resting area. You have to come here!!!
  • This is a great zoo. The animals look well cared for. It was blistering hot when I visited and we could have really used those misters around the park to be working. Unfortunately, 90% of the ones I stopped at didn't work. I don't know the usual times of the food kiosks around the park, but it would have been nice to have had a couple of those open.
  • Love this Zoo. Mission Everglades is so interesting and fun it makes you realize how much wild life we have around us in Florida. My 4 yr old daughter loves going and seeing all the animals. The staff is knowledgable and friendly. Best thing to do is try to go when the exhibit is being feed... The interactions are amazing.
  • I'm an annual member for the past three years. My kids love to visit there often just to play in the water park. The animal displays have a great variety of information, and often you can see a zookeeper there to answer your questions. The new addition of the Everglades is very educational and interesting.
  • I would give it 4.5 stars! The only problems I have are there are not a lot of places to eat, and the vending machines through out the park should be able to take cards. Also, the bathrooms are scattered and hard to find when you really have to go. I LOVE this zoo, it's huge with a lot to see! I love the animals and the scenery. It really has some cool attention to detail, I love the Amazon and the new Everglades exhibits. I will be returning soon!! Great place!!

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.
