Miami is a tourist destination known for its dazzling beaches and overwhelming sunshine. It is a tropical destination that is very visited throughout the year, but it has many other attractions as impressive as its beaches. Here is a brief summary of the places you must visit during your stay in Miami:
- South Beach
On this beach and its picturesque art deco buildings you can find everything you are looking for. From relaxing and crystal clear beaches, exclusive shops and restaurants, to passionate and endless parties. South Beach portrays the classic cinematic framing: surfers, skaters, models, athletes, parties, and the beach under an overwhelming sun.
- Little Havana
Calle Ocho (SW 8th Street) is an invitation, and even a welcome, to the joy and mischief of Cuba. Here you can find different shops and restaurants that replicate the real Cuban streets. Be surprised by their food, music and friendliness. We recommend you try the coffee and the cigar.
- Everglades National Park
This is one of the must-see destinations for nature lovers. In this natural park of more than 6000 km2 you can find a variety of wild flora and fauna, which includes 14 animals in danger of extinction, such as the American crocodile, the Florida panther, the Antillean manatee, among others. Likewise, you can take part in walks or excursions, go hiking, rent bicycles, canoes or kayaks, among other activities. It is advisable to visit it during the dry season, between November and March, due to the availability of these activities and due to the greater visibility of the animals.
- Key West
Known for the visit of pirates, explorers, writers, among others, Key West is currently a very popular destination among lovers of marine sports and nightlife.
In its plaza called Mallory Square, ideally located in front of the sea, activities are carried out every afternoon at the “Sunset Party”. This celebration begins 2 hours before sunset and is accompanied by music, dance, and street art.
Here you can find the house of former President Harry S. Truman, which today functions as an open museum that exhibits photographs, history, among other things from the time.
If you are a lover of literature, you will not want to miss the next destination: the Ernest Hemingway House Museum. Awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954, Hemingway wrote different titles with Key West as a source of inspiration. All the original furniture among which Hemingway and his family lived are preserved here.
- Bayside marketplace
Miami brings together the best fashion stores and boutiques and the best shopping centers. This is an acclaimed destination not only among fashionistas and shoppers, but among the general public.
