To save money at Zoo Miami, visitors can purchase zoo memberships, which have free admission to exhibits, park in the regular lot instead of using valet parking to save up to $8 and visit the zoo with a GoMiami card, which is a regional card that offers discounted admission to Zoo Miami and other local establishments. Zoo Miami also has discounts for special members of the population, including those active in the military, government employees in Miami-Dade, AAA members and senior citizens. Presenting qualifying identifications can help save money on admissions tickets, dining and beverages in the zoo.
For frequent visitors, investing in a zoo membership is a good way to save money. Membership fees vary for individuals, couples and families. For a nominal fee, they allow visitors unlimited general admission and reduced ticket prices for shows and events.
One-time visitors, such as travelers, can enjoy discounts through the GoMiami card. This card is an all-inclusive pass that offers up to a 55 percent discount for participating attractions. These cards are available as single-day or multi-day passes.
With a photo identification and valid AAA membership card, AAA members receive tickets for up to four people discounted by $1 each, for a total of $4 savings. Active military members can save 50 percent on an admissions ticket; up to three accompanying guests receive a 25 percent discount. Retired military personnel and up to three guests can get a 25 percent discount. Miami-Dade government employees receive a $4 discount on tickets; their children can get $2 off.
