If you are a tourist to Miami, this is a wonderful must see attraction. The animals are gorgeous and healthy, and are in their natural habitat; no cages here! It's a great open space, with wide paths, so you are not bumping into people. Plan to spend the day. It's a BIG zoo! On one of our visits, we decided to rent a fun safari cycle to pedal around the zoo. This is nice on very hot days because it's shaded and creates a breeze as you pedal! Also, on very hot days, go early in the morning when the animals are out. We all seek shade when its too hot!
For locals, you must get an annual pass and use it during Miami winters when its cool. Our family uses it to get our exercise by walking the zoo and enjoying nature at its best!
Since it can get very hot in Miami, be sure to freeze a bottle of water the night before and take it with you in your bag. This can keep you cool, save you a little money, and tie you over until you purchase items at concessions stands.
