    Great fun! Take about 4h to walk it through. Not reasonable to rent a bike as it is actually not so long walk. There are also waterstands everywhere that help you cool you down with hot weather.

    Took my grandson, son and daughter-in-law. We had an awesome time. We fed the giraffes, pet animals, rode camels and the carousel. We all had a great time. The staff was always polite and helpful.

    Great time to stroll with the family. Animals appear to be well taken care off. Go early morning and most animals will be out. Very much worth the price.

    It's very hot during the summer to go to which was a bad idea for me to go in mid October when it's still too hot. But apart from the sweatiness I had a great time with my friends renting bike

    Beautiful displays, aviary, very large, bring comfortable shoes and water bottle, 4-5 hours to see everything, rent peddle powered carriages to zip through, or pay for a/c monorail to get around.

    Christmas Time Zoo lights were great! My wife and kids loved feeding the camels. Great fun, can't wait to go back.

    Great zoo! Rent a bike for the day. It's worth the money to have transportation to get around this large space, particularly in the Miami heat.

    Awesome zoo: spacious for the animals, not very crowded, atmospheric ambient music, and a very pleasant space in itself even without the animals

    Enjoy the only sub tropical zoo in the continental US. Asia, Africa, Australia and the Amazon are the main features. Enjoy Miami's Diamond in the Rough attraction. Holds a special place in my heart.

    Really big zoo. Really nice check for the groupon. It's a nice walk. Monorail is slow but a cool experience. Totally worth a afternoon.

    It's the only sub-tropical Zoo in the US, and that still understates it's awesomeness. It's perfect to explore, even for adults!

    Rent a Safari Cycle - it's a bit pricey ($22), but it's the BEST way to get around the zoo and oh-so-much fun! Read more

    Grandson loves the play fountain. Be sure to bring some swim attire and a towel for the kids so they can splash in the fountain.

    Beautiful but you need two days to see it all. Watch out for golf carts, trams and bicycles! Way to many "vehicles" on the walking paths!

    Don't forget to visit wings of asia and the Amazon and beyond area; getting that up close and personal with the animals is priceless.

    Best time to come here is when the weather is cool. In the summer forget about it. You would be miserable.

    Make sure you feed the giraffe's, and rent the bike it makes it easier to get around the park, unless you like walking 3 miles.
