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.

  • Zoo Miami is a nice zoo with plenty of things to do and see. You could spend all day here, and we really did. We got the most expensive ticket ($34ish) that included a 45 minute tram tour through Asia...  more »

  • 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 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!!
  • The zoo is great and it is HUGE. Come prepared to walk and prepared with sunscreen. Don't come hungry because there aren't a lot of snacks along the way--especially if 90% of the stands are closed like when we were there. Additionally, the majority of the zoo is in the sun--just be prepared--there's nowhere in the zoo to buy sunscreen! I found a discount code for their website by googling "zoo Miami discount." I'd recommend doing this because we saved quite a bit and got monorail and feeding passes for free. Overall good experience! Would recommend!
  • I love this place and I've been here on 3 different occasions . First of all its huge and its no walk in the park ,they do rent out bikes but if you want the full experience and accompanied by a group its best to walk (i hate having to stop the bikes then get off to read the signs,take pictures at every stop. 👉great place for children and the whole family to spend an active day . There are so many animals🐒🦁🐯🐖🐮🐍 ... well duh its a zoo but it feels like you're in the wild because of how large it is . Each animal its own huge space and not small cages like you would imagine an average zoo. ●Wear comfortable Shoes. ●Look up the prices before so you know what you're in for . ●Food is a bit expensive 💲 ●Bring some sort of picture taking device ●Bring Coins for some stuff(feeding fishes ect) ●Bring water (there are water fountains but still)
  • Fun place to take the kids... They have animal shows you can attend to and a water park next to the regular park. Great animal exhibits and a new everglades exhibit that is wonderful for little kids. You can take the train or trolley to move around or have a 2-5 people bycicle rental, stroller rentals as well. We love it here.
