Jungle Island reviews
I did the capybara encounter and it was so much fun. Ryan was an amazing guide and clearly knows so much and cares deeply about Ron and Hermione. 10/10 would recommend!

$10 per adult is a good value for what is offered. We had a layover, so took a taxi to/from the airport which can be pricey. Spent hours looking at the birds. It's great to see families enjoying the animals and playground. Kids were having so much fun. Great to see them playing and not on their phones.
I like my experience here. We had a VIP tour with flamingo, the tour include opportunity to feed the flamingo. It was really nice emotion. When they come to you and eating from your hands it's wonderful. A guide told us many interesting facts about this pretty birds. This trip worth money wich we paid. It's not cheap - 55 dollars per person. After feeding you can walk around the park. It's not big, but you can see beautiful parrots who says hello, some monkeys , lemurs, huge Tortugas and kangaroos.
Would be a 2 star review, it's only 3 stars because it was free to enter (15 dollars for parking). Unfortunately, it's not the same place it was in 2019. It's clean, but there is much less to see. Food selection was very slim and we threw away most of what we bought because it tasted off. The Tree trekking is probably the only reason to go. It cost 48 dollars to go on their playground (which is nice), but pricey for one kid to go on the playground. Possibly worth it if you have 9yo kids that like to climb. They're in the middle of a remodel, so perhaps things will get better. As of right now, all the things to do in the park cost extra. 5 - 10 dollars typically for games, the rope course with zip line didn't have it's prices posted.
Came here with a friend for a capybara and kangaroo encounter. Our guide, Ryan, was absolutely fantastic. He was very knowledgeable about the animals and very witty. You can tell he cares a lot for the animals here and respects them. The animals themselves were adorable and friendly and looked very well taken care of. There is also a section with many, many, many large parrots freely perched on branches for people to take photos with. Had a great experience and would definitely return the next time I’m in Miami! Would love to do the other animal encounters! The park currently offers free general admission, as it is not fully re-opened yet. The rest of the park was very nice as well - lots of wild birds and free-roaming lizards. There is a treehouse for kids to play in, as well as vendors for food and snacks. The park itself is pretty small - could probably walk through in less than an hour. We spent about two and a half hours here between the two animal encounters and other activities. Would recommend!
While it was nice to see all the parrots perched freely about the park and some other animals, what we unexpectedly enjoyed the most was the amazing playgrounds for kids. One was perfect for 3-7yr olds with lots of safe, yet fun and challenging bridges and beautifully designed tree houses. I’d pay admission to the park just for my kid to enjoy this for an hour or so, have a quick bite and then see animals.
