Must be honest - when reading the reviews, we were nervous about making the trip to South Miami to visit. But after visiting, we were beyond happy that we did. We went for Valentine's Day weekend and had the best, best, best time. If you really want to make it over the top, pay the extra to have the monkey excursion. It was FANTASTIC. You go in the back and get interactive with the monkeys. It was one of the most fun I've ever had in my life. The place as a whole is small, the shows are pretty decent, but it is really a unique place and we had a blast!
What an absolutely incredible experience! I’m a native Floridian but somehow I only recently learned of this hidden gem. It’s an experience unlike any other. The guides were so kind and friendly, the grounds were beautiful, and the shows were entertaining and informative. I especially loved that they are conservation focused and not just gimmicky or touristy. I felt like we could truly experience the monkeys in THEIR element.
