Miami and Miami Beach are different cities.  Miami is on the mainland and Miami Beach across the intra-coastal, which has beaches, water sports and many world famous nightclubs. The famous Brickell neighborhood, is in Miami, also where the city’s financial district is located.

There is a cool place called Mary Brickell Village, “a mini mall” where it’s packed with people, shopping during the day, or enjoying nightlife around the bars and clubs.

Near Brickell there are several interesting places to visit such as:

Viscaya: A beautiful museum, which, was planned to be the winter mansion of a tycoon, but nowadays is a museum, inside the grounds are several beautiful gardens, places to eat and to admire the beauty of Biscayne Bay.

Within 10 minutes of the museum is located Key Biscayne, an island south of Miami Beach and southeast of Downtown Miami, it is a quiet, residential area, but has a few points of interest that catch the eye of tourists such as: the Miami Seaquarium and the Key Biscayne lighthouse.  Here you can rent stand up paddle boards, kayaks, small sail boats and do various water sports.

Here in Downtown, is located the American Airlines Arena. If you have time, go to a basketball game.

In Miami Beach, one of the best things to do is rent a bike.   Bicycles are spread around several rental points.  You take a bike out at one of the many terminals in the city, pay with a credit card and you can return it at any terminal.

The best places to enjoy the nightlife, in Miami Beach are:

Española Way: a street that has shops and bars and is, a cool place to enjoy the beginning of the night.

Then head to Ocean Drive.  Our favorite places are: Mangos and Clevelander.  These places are always full of young and beautiful people.

Best time to visit Miami:

The low season, can be considered between May and October, when hotels usually offer better prices, the city does not have too many visitors, but can suffer from heavy rains.

The high season in the city, occurs between the months of November and April, when Miami lives its heyday and has a great climate, with little rain.

Spring Break occurs from the end of February to the end of April, but mainly in March.

Although it may seem that the high season in Miami is in summer, the place gets busier and crowded during the winter, when many people flee the rigorous winters of Northern cities.

The official hurricane season runs from June to November, which means there are chances of hurricanes occurring, just as there are high chances of nothing happening.
