Miami

Miami boasts glamour, elegance and a cosmopolitan attitude, and as it is nestled on the Atlantic coast of Florida’s most southern tip, this beaming city is also sunny and pleasantly warm all year round. To just call this metropolis international is an understatement of criminal proportions, due to its North American core with a twist of Caribbean culture, a healthy dose of Latin America, a dash of Africa, a touch of Asia and a hint of Europe. All these elements and their fascinating blend give Miami a vibrant and exhilarating cultural life that needs to be experienced.

Planning Your Miami Visit

When to go?

The city’s basketball team is called the Miami Heat for a reason. The tropical monsoon climate means it’s always hot, although you can expect thunderstorms in summer and hurricane season runs for as long as June to November. Nevertheless, it’s perfect for sunbathing in winter!

How many days?

Most of Miami Beach’s best attractions can be covered in 3 or 4 days, but book at least a week if you want to see more of the city and/or go to the Everglades.

How safe is it?

Despite its depiction in movies, much of Miami is pretty safe. Like most cities though, it has parts tourists would be smart to avoid. High-crime areas include Biscayne Boulevard, Liberty City, Opa-Locka, and Overtown. Unlike the others, you might have reason to go to Miami’s Downtown district, but stay alert, especially after dark.

What people are saying about Miami

★★★★★ I enjoyed the tour very much; excellent!

The tour was excellent! It was everything I hoped it would be. It was a lot of fun riding on the upper deck of the tour bus; such a great view. The 3 parts were very well-coordinated, and the people were great, very friendly. I would recommend it to anyone.

★★★★★ It was a great tour, just a couple of small changes & would be perfect

Boat tour was 90 minutes long could have been an hour and be just as good. Good to have lunch before boat tour. Little Havana was fun stop. ticket agent was very good and flexible, as we missed our original time slot but able to take next tour an hour later.

★★★★★ Captain KC was knowledgeable and personable

Captain KC explained different plants and their uses for the native american tribes residing in the area. As a person that enjoys native plant wisdom, I appreciated her sharing. We saw 4 alligators, which was awesome! Along with a rare siting of a bird that she says is going extinct (sorry forgot the name). I think I learned more about the wildlife during this short visit than at any other venue during my visit.
