That's the point. This is wilderness, and that's why they call it the Everglades National Park and the Everglades Wilderness Waterway. If you come to Flamingo expecting to be entertained, you WILL be disappointed. Notwithstanding the fact that the visitor center has been closed, that...More

Clearly badly damaged by the hurricane, but even-so, there’s just nothing here worth seeing. We spent $25 to enter the park (which was a surprise). It’s an hour drive on to the visitor Center. Very disappointed - there’s just nothing. Yes there is an information...More

We drove down to Flamingo from the main entrance, knowing the visitor center was still closed due to Irma damage, but it was worth it to see the park, and watch the manatees! The marina was very quiet, and there were about a dozen manatees...More

The visitor center is virtually closed, but the marina still provides an educational and enjoyable boat tour. Worth the drive.

We visited here as a family (two sons aged 4&8) and had an amazing trip overall. We chose to go later in the day (around 5pm) so it was a little cooler - but that meant a crazy amount of mosquitos. The 'mosquito meter' in...More
