Get the guide in your language

In Miami, everything oozes glamour, elegance, and a cosmopolitan attitude. Beaming Miami is nestled on the Atlantic coast of Florida’s most southern tip, rendering it sunny and warm all-year-round. It is North America with a twist of the Caribbean, a touch of Latin America and a hint of Europe. These combined give Miami a vibrant cultural life.

This is a place where you can find picturesque beaches, exceptional nightlife, plentiful shopping, and delicious restaurants. Although there is an abundance of things to do in the city and on the beach, visitors also enjoy taking one-day excursions to see some of the breathtaking natural surroundings of Miami.
