The Miami MetroZoo, branded and commonly known as Zoo Miami, is the largest and oldest zoological garden in Florida, and the only tropical zoo in the United States. It houses more than 900 wild animals in a cageless setting that closely approximates the animals’ natural habitats and gives the visitor the feeling of embarking on an international safari. Large, open-air exhibits allow visitors to enjoy beautiful and endangered wildlife at a safe yet remarkably close range.

Zoo Miami is not a conventional zoo of those who, seeing animals locked in a tiny space, convey a great sadness. It is more than 100 acres of woods and meadows in which are housed about 800 exotic species in a natural environment. Is an excellent place to spend a different day away from the beaches, especially if you travel with family and kids.
