Monkey Jungle - Review
This is a protected habitat where endangered primates roam freely within 30 acres of green space. A wild life park and a tourist attraction, Monkey Jungle has over 400 primates from 30 species. There is also an Amazonian Rain forest and an aviary here. The gift shop is themed around the various species here. In 1994 a team of archaeologists discovered 10,000-year-old fossil specimens including human teeth and bones from animals such as the sabre-tooth tiger, dire wolf, Pleistocene horse and camel, the dig is now frequently visited. Other attractions include Wild Monkey Swimming Pool and Hanging with the Orangs.

Monkey Jungle, Miami Reviews
Honestly one of the coolest experiences you can have, it's well worth paying to feed the monkey's and do the rainforest tour. It's such a hidden gem that I would 100% recommend, you really learn a ton and the staff is great, knowledgeable and super friendly! We'll definitely be going again in the future as it really made our trip to Miami above all else. I should note I've seen people mentioning the bad conditions and from what we saw the monkeys had plenty of enrichment, space and didn't have to do anything that they didn't want to, staff was actively cleaning cages and running around doing something for them at all times.
An absolute must visit. For anyone even remotely close by. While there is plenty of space/land for the monkeys it is not a difficult or long walk for visitors. We visited in July so it was very hot. Dress in clothes you can sweat in. My daughter had a bit of an attack from the heat so seriously dress accordingly and bring a fan or ice pack if you have sensitive people with you. The staff was beyond amazing, by the way, in helping my daughter. They are top notch. Now about the jungle itself. WOW! Get ready for the experience of a lifetime. We arrived around 1 and finished by 4 ish. You can visit the main walk through area for around $25. This allows you to see monkeys, birds, sloths, etc. In this area you will also see monkeys overhead that will drop down little bowls on chains to ask you for some food. You drop the food in the bowl and they pull it up by the chain. As an adult I loved it. Kids would probably go crazy for it. There are a few enclosures that have PVC pipes running to them where you can also drop the food and the monkeys will come right up and eat it. The food is available where you check in and at the cafe. It was $1 a box. We had six boxes but that was a little more than we needed for 2 people. The second option is to get the interactive experience which cost around $90. It includes the experience I mentioned above and a tour inside one of the bigger areas where the monkeys will come right up to you, jump on you and eat from your hands. This was amazing and absolutely worth the cost. The facility will provide you with the food you just have to provide an arm for them to crawl out on and they will begin grabbing the food. We were fortunate to see several with babies attached to them. One was even nursing. If you have an animal lover in the family this is an absolute must. The location is not flat smooth ground like a sidewalk. More like a mulch path or dirt path. It easy to walk on this but might be a little challenging with a stroller or wheelchair.
I have always loved visiting Monkey Jungle, ever since I was a little boy. My children have been here with me and now my grandchildren. Folks who commented negatively probably never visited, or if they did, they just wanted to be "entertained". It's not a Sea World or Disney World type place. It is a research and educational facility that began allowing guests paid admission, in order to help fund their research for the good of the various species. Keep that in mind and take the time to read up on the history and focus of Monkey Jungle. Then you will appreciate what you are seeing there.
Went there with my service dog and management approached me prior to entrance and were very helpful. They explained that yes I was allowed to enter but that the monkeys would probably be very territorial and my experience may not be fun, they allowed us a test run and sure enough it only took a minute for them to get vocal! Made a personal decision not to continue but was extremely glad they gave me the option! Would recommend this but without a large breed dog!
Small and friendly place! In about 2 hours you get to see the whole place. Free parking. You can bring your own food and have it in the picnic area, they sell beverages throughout dispenser machines only.
