Jungle Island, a favorite South Florida landmark, is an intimate eco-adventure park and events destination located in the heart of Miami, across from the cruise ports between Downtown Miami and South Beach. Building upon a rich tradition that began in 1936, Jungle Island is home to thrilling new attractions designed to take guests to new heights and some of the world's most rare exotic animals. Visitors enjoy immersive, real-life jungle experiences including treetop adventures, engaging animal shows and informative exhibits while strolling by streams and waterfalls under a lush canopy of tropical trees. Book unforgettable hands-on encounters with fascinating animals or go on privately guided behind-the-scenes VIP tours - just like the many A-list celebrities who frequent Jungle Island. With its newly renovated Bloom Ballroom and picturesque outdoor spaces including a private beach, the 18-acre park also serves as Miami’s destination for extraordinary events.
