Families visiting South Florida will want to check out Jungle Island, just a short drive away in your Miami van rental. What began as Parrot Jungle in 1936, Jungle Island has developed into an interactive animal experience and a premier attraction in Miami.

You can peruse the park to see creatures from all over the world, including lemurs, orangutans, leopards, and much more, but Jungle Island is much more than a zoo. For over 75 years, Jungle Island has given families a chance to learn about animals through unique exhibits, events, and interactive animal encounters.

Regularly, Jungle Island of Miami has events like Wild Encounters and Winged Wonders, featuring the theme park’s different animals. Jungle Island also features a variety of plants and prides itself on receiving a U.S. EPA’s Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program’s Gold Level designation. According to the Jungle Island website, “this mark is awarded to organizations that have made a conscious commitment to adopt technologies and practices that reduce pesticide risk to human health and the environment.”

Aside from the plants and animals, Jungle Island also features Parrot Cove Aqua Park, where families can go and cool off at the water park after a day of exotic animal fun. Kids also like to run and climb in the playground area, giving them a chance to stretch their legs and burn off some energy.

Jungle Island is one of Miami’s family attractions worth considering. This destination makes a great day trip idea for anyone traveling to the South Florida area. While Jungle Island is open 365 days a year, you will want to check the Jungle Island website for daily admission rates and hours of operation.
