Miami Airport to beach

by grahamb58

I am going to Miami Beach North area around 71st street for the first time in February. Can anyone advise me the best and most economical method to get from the international airport, to my hotel please. For example, is there a bus or train, or does it have to be a taxi?
Thank you in advance.
Graham

If I am travelling by myself, in Miami, I have used the Super Shuttle.

Taxis are not very expensive ($32.00) and faster, esp. if you are travelling in company.

Miami has a decent bus system, but the connections make it slow and inconvenient.

Sorry, no trains.

Thank you for your helpful replies. I will be traveling on my own, so a bus would be cheaper I expect, if the journey was straight forward. But considering that I don't know the area and I will have luggage, I think I will fork out for the taxi.
Thank you. Graham

You might also check to see if your hotel has a shuttle, which may be free. I took a taxi, and it wasn't too bad.

If you are traveling by yourself there is an Airport Shuttle service, blue vans, that you might take at the lower level (arrivals) of the airport. There are kiosks at almost every concourse exit, outside of the terminal where you prepay your fare. The pro is that it is less expensive than the taxi cab, the cons are that you have to wait until the van gets enough people to leave and then it makes several stops at each customer's destination. Depending how far you go, the more stops you might end up making. On the other hand, taxi cabs have a fix rate from the airport to the beach, it varies according to the strip of beach you go.

Travel Tips for Miami Beach

Have a cafe con leche or a...

by mannymiami

Have a cafe con leche or a Cuban cafecito with a Pastelito de guayaba y queso, (its like a Cuban Crossant). go to any of the beaches and soak up some of that Miami sun and while on the beach put on your walkman and listen to Love 94 FM with the smoothest tropical music on the radio. Walk down to South Point and hang over by the pier and watch the old Cuban men fish. Have a Cuban Mojito (Rum, fresh mint leaves,fresh lime juice,sugar and soda water) at Mangos over on Ocean and 9st while people watching. Have lunch at Puerto Sagua for some inexpensive Cuban food.Have dinner up in North Beach at Las Vacas Gordas for a nice Argentinian steak and very inexpensive. Thats up on 71 street. Go out to Cafe Nostaligia to listen to some of the hottest Cuban Jazz with there 15 piece band 'coolest place this side of Havana'.. When I go back up north to visit my parents I miss the Latin Flavor that Miami has. Besides my palm trees and warm weather. this is truly my home...

To get an idea of the latest "in" places, some reviews on restaurants and nightclubs, and for a general idea of the oddity that is this city, pick up a copy of the Miami New Times. The Times is available for free and can be found at newsstands and most newspaper machines.

If in the mood to play pool?

by vanessadb

There are many places to play pool in Miami and South Beach, but most tables tend to be pretty crappy (small and old) which you usually pay with quarters, meaning any one comes and challenges the winner for the next game.

So if you're in the mood to play with your friend alone on a nice regulation-size table head to Felt on Washington and 12th street. You'll be able to play as long as you want paying by the hour and order drinks at the bar.

Salsa your night away

by jackfruit about Mango's

One of South Beach's premier danceclubs located right on Ocean Drive, Mango's is a must see.

We saw dancers in leopard suits dancing on the tables as we were walking down Ocean Drive and decided to give the place a shot at night. The dance and general pulse of the place was simply electric!

The club serves dinner, so you can get seated at a table or stand around the bar area - You will be forced to buy drinks (although we managed to dodge this - we were already loaded from the free drinks at Lily) - I found this place to be more of a cabaret club rather than someplace you can dance the night away.

Male and female bartenders take turns in singles or groups to dance on a table facing the street wearing exotic costumes - leopard prints, skimpy gauzy stuff, etc. Music is latin.

The only thing I didnt like about this club was the steep cover charge - $10-$20 depending on the show. Casual

Skybar

by goingsolo about Skybar

This is one of my favorite Miami Beach places and one that I'd highly recommend. Its a good place to experience the true South Beach crowd without the velvet ropes and steep cover charges.

Skybar is located in the back of the Shore Club hotel. There is no charge to enter, although drinks prices are steep. We're talking $10 bottles of beer. The crowd, again a mixture of tourists and locals, always seems more laid back here. They're not exactly friendly because that isn't the norm in true South Beach places, but they're not unfriendly either. And the outdoor pool is one of the nicest on the beach. Like the Delano, cabanas and beds are available for rent.

If you want the VIP treatment and feel like spending $200, rent a cabana. You'll get a bottle of alcohol and all the mixers you need. If you'd rather watch the big spenders than be one, this is a great place to walk around and observe. Go early, as lines form later and bouncers can become choosier about who gets in. Almost anything goes, although too casual may get you denied entrance.
