Monkey Jungle hotels
Monkey Jungle is a popular reserve and home to almost 400 primates across 30 species. These include orangutans, spider monkeys, gibbons, guenons, the highly endangered Brazilian golden lion tamarin, Java monkeys, and more. The Monkey Jungle story began in 1933, when the curious animal behaviorist Joseph DuMond released six Javanese monkeys into the wilderness of a densely forested Florida hill so he could study their behavior. Monkey Jungle is located in Suburban Miami’s Cutler Bay, just off U.S. Highway 1. It is the only protected habitat for endangered primates in America which permits public exploration.

Miami International Airport (MIA) is the gateway to Florida. Metrorail trains from the airport’s Central Station connect Monkey Jungle via the South and North Dade stations, as do free Tri-Rail shuttles from Fort Lauderdale Airport. Additionally, leading interstate bus operators have regular services to the city and connect to local public bus networks and Metrorail trains, both of which ply to most places of tourist interest. Monkey Jungle is also easily accessible by car via one of three impressive highways into Dade County. Taxi and car hire services are available at the airport, hotels, railway stations, and throughout the city.
