There is so much to see and do in Miami; explore the neighbourhoods of Little Havana, hang out with the trendsetters in Coconut Grove, or relax on Miami’s famous white sandy beaches. Miami’s nightlife is sophisticated and varied. The streets of South Beach are full of clubs and bars; with everything from cocktail bars and comedy shows to lounges and nightclubs, one night in Miami would never be long enough.
