If you want to do something different, spend a day at this zoo. One of the best in the country.
A perfect outing for the whole family
At some distance from the city centre is the Zoo, one of the largest and some say the best in the whole country. With over three decades of history behind it, it has over 500 different species and more than 2,000 animals living in its spacious grounds. Lions, koalas, pelicans, black-necked swans, hippopotamuses, rhinoceroses, monkeys, flamingos and many other exotic species, are spread out in the beautifully presented grounds with a profusion of trees, palms and plants. Given the considerable size of the place, a good way of getting around, particularly if you have children with you, is by using its different methods of transport: the monorail (a train which travels on overhead rails and which stops at different places inside the Zoo itself), bikes which you can rent there or on one of the various tourist train tours. If you prefer walking, there are also guided walking tours. Whichever you choose, you’ll definitely have a wild time (www.miamimetrozoo.com).
