Talk about a tourist trap! It is a cute place to take the kids for an hour or two get some raisins or sunflower seeds and feed the monkeys that is the main attraction here. However it is pretty small and for the $140 entrance fee for a family of four I can see how it was not crowded and... More

I loved this place. We paid the normal admission (you could pay $50 more for a more private and close encounter with the monkeys). Once in the park, there are 4 shows and the people giving the shows were informative and amusing. Loved seeing the Ape and learning about him. You can buy raisins to feed the monkeys in the... More

I came here mainly to see how the orangutan and gorilla were faring. Their environs have been improved and this is as close to a natural habitat as these animals can have outside of the wild. Yes it is pricey but the money is necessary to keep the place going so I think it's well worth the cost. The shows... More

We were in the Miami area and thought this looked like an interesting place. A couple things I wish I had known before going....it cost $30 to go in, The shows are 5-10 min with a wildlife person talking for a few minutes. If you see the pictures of people holding and feeding monkeys that is the Amazon Rainforest Experience.... More

The V,.I.P tour is the way to go. You get up close and personal with these beautiful animals and get to feed them. They jump all over you and just want to be friendly and a bite to eat. The park is well laid out and user friendly. The staff is great and I love the history of why this... More

I loved the set up - we were caged, the monkeys were free. All 5 of us - all adults mind you - were very entertained by these animals. We noticed that raisins and craisins are popular - with adults and monkeys alike :-D. We had a good time, but it was a short visit as the 'park' is rather... More

Found this place on accident on our way to the everglades. Not sure what to expect when we stopped but we were pleasantly surprised. The monkeys are plentiful and we highly recommend you purchase the monkey food when you enter the park. Feeding these monkeys via the cups hanging throughout the park is a real sight. The shows were informative... More

I have heard of Monkey Jungle for almost 50 years and never been until now. Wow, I have missed a lot of opportunities but know that now I will return after this first visit. You truly are the caged while the monkeys run free in a decent portion of the facility. While you are in the cage, you can feed... More

Absolutely have to go to Monkey Jungle anytime your in Miami. It is legendary and a cornerstone. The Dumomd family have been pioneers since opening. The entire time it has been family owned and operated. The love shows and should be rewarded.
