Explore one of the most unique zoos in South Florida, featuring the only private beach in Miami.
Jungle Island sits in the beautiful waters of Biscayne Bay in Miami, and it is truly a zoo unlike any other. Get up close and personal with kangaroos, orangutans, penguins, alligators, parrots and many more as you explore the island, where picture opportunities abound and memories will last a lifetime. Enjoying your summer at Jungle Island is one of the best reasons you should choose to visit Miami this year and not just for the animals and fascinating exhibits.
Parrot Cove is Miami's only private beach, and it is located right on Jungle Island. You can visit the beach for free with zoo admission. In addition to interacting with your favorite animals, spend some time working on your tan, swimming in the cool water or having fantastic fun on the Rainforest Riptide. This massive inflatable jungle gym is just a short wade from the beach, and trampolines, a climbing wall, high jump, balance beams, a swing and a catapult are all just waiting for you and the family.
After your wet and wild adventure, you're going to want to relax in comfort. The Hilton Miami Downtown is just that. Located just 15 minutes from the Miami airport, the hotel features amazing views of Biscayne Bay and the rest of the downtown Miami skyline. Offering Wi-Fi, a luxurious indoor pool on the seventh floor, a cozy bar and a restaurant, the Hilton has everything that the whole family is looking for in a hotel. And if you're not done with your day once Jungle Island is closed, you will be pleased to know that the hotel is nestled right in the Miami arts district, so you're just a short walk away from some incredible restaurants, shops and city attractions.
