When we visited the Parrot Jungle there weren't that many visitors... Maybe not a good thing for the park but great for use...
We where able to enjoy this oasis of rest between Miami and Miami Beach....
We just enjoyed the nice weather, the animals and this beautiful landscaped animal park....

Almost everyone here is Hispanic, so don't be surprised if someone greets you in Spanish who hardly knows any English themsleves. The Latin culture is pervasive. You could practically consider Miami another part of South America!
