Explore Florida Zoo, Central Florida and more!

The Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens is located just under an hour from the Caribe Royale. It offers an exciting day spent with over 400 animals in a lush, tropical world that is a relaxing an educational experience for the whole family.

The Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens' most visible role is to provide its visitors with recreation and the opportunity to observe and learn about its unique and interesting animals. One of the Zoo's most critical functions is to provide a refuge for animal species that are threatened in the wild. One of the ways zoos are helping is by implementing Species Survival Plans© (SSP) in partnership with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.

Besides seeing over 400 animals (that doesn't even include the bugs in the Massey Services Insect Zoo), you can take to the sky and enjoy our aerial adventure course, ZOOm Air Adventure Park or bring your flip-flops and swimsuit to cool-off in the Wharton-Smith Tropical Splash Ground.
