Deep down in the south of the States, closer to Cuba than it is to Tallahassee, you’ll meet magical Miami. This city is business, beach and nightclub rolled into one. What’s more, bathed in a mild Gulf Stream, it’s always warm here. You can visit all year round and always see the city’s sunny side.
Rich and glitzy, Miami receives more international travellers than any other city in the US apart from NYC. Celebrities swish in and out of its high-rise hotels and Ocean Drive villas. In fact, everyone wants a piece of Miami: it’s been deemed the unofficial capital of Latin America.
Spanish flows through the streets – as do streams of supercars. Tourists flock to South Beach and drown themselves in dive bars and fishbowl happy hours. The locals like their morning Cafecito, their afternoon gym and their city’s celebrated restaurant scene – a fusion of South American, Floribbean and fresh local seafood.
You’ll love your holiday in Miami. The simple, ice-cream bright Art Deco facades of famous Ocean Drive display a certain 1920s naivety, but modern Miami has an edge to it. Little Havana is an authentic Cuban quarter where you’ll hear Domino-slamming Grandads. Coconut Grove is both upscale and Boho, hosting the popular Coco Walk Mall. South Pointe Park is where locals go to ogle incoming cruise ships.
Art deco and arepas, local brews and no-shoes – let Miami’s good time philosophy put a smile on your face. Book flights to Miami.
