Jungle Island

A treasure island

Although Miami Zoo is excellent it is quite a long way from downtown Miami, so Jungle Island could be a choice if you prefer somewhere a little closer. Like Miami Zoo, Jungle Island is an area devoted to the animal world but it is centrally located on Watson Island, one of the small islands between Miami and Miami Beach. It is a quiet place and despite being an island you won’t have to take a boat as you can get there by road. This exuberant place, with over 75 years history, started life as a place for exhibiting exotic birds, although over time many other species have been included. Today, in the midst of all the trees and tropical plants, you will come across reptiles, amphibians, macaques, lemurs, orangutans, lions, tigers and even kangaroos (www.jungleisland.com) .
