Arriving Miami

Here’s what you need to know to plan your voyage to Miami.

Arriving by Air

Miami’s principal airport is Miami International Airport (MIA),has nonstop service to virtually all major U.S. cities and dozens of hubs in the Caribbean, Central and South America, Europe, and the Middle East.

Going Hotels ( arrived day before staying over night ) 

Miami airport hotels most have free shuttle but miami airport hotels which is near miami airport has no place for sightseeing or anyplace to walk spend sometime only good for over night sleep if youy staying one night than going cruise good option for you .

Most miami airport hotel has free shuttle on departure level ( Which is #2 floor ) in miami international airport .

Staying Miami, Miami Downtown / Brickell area, Miami beach, Nort Miami Beach, Surfside, Fort Lauderdale etc.

Public bus : Departure level and 3 lane you will see bus station there is map to find right bus.

Rent a Car : Miami car rental center located right next to Miami airport, there are free shuttles on departure level( Which is #2 floor ) for most car rental companies, renting a car in Miami might not be the best option, if you staying Miami you have to for valet in your hotel and most location also Miami traffic is crazy and most drivers careless so if you are not pro driver not recommended. 

Yellow taxi : taxis avalaible level near door 10 arrivals level, you may need to walk some tto get a taxi : Price : 35 $ to 90 $

Rideshare/Tnc : 3 of them serve in miami Uber, Lfyt, Wow Tnc Price 25 $ to 85 $

( we do not recommed uber and lfyt in miami most drivers don't speak english ) 

Blackcar Service : Best option for more if you traveling more than 2 person because most taxi and rideshare may not fit your luggage even you requested Suv/Xl uber, Lyft if you lucky you get big suv but most vehicle used small in miami.Wow Transfer Miami one of the best option also they do have private shuttle free car seat provided for families upon request. Price : 60 $ to 90 $.

Going Port Directly ( Arriving same day going cruise )

We do Not recommed you to do that, if you can stay over night before cruise, because Miami and near airports has so much delays you may miss your cruise ship can be nightmare to join the ship after all some other port of call. 

So if you don't have anyother option you must fly sameday here is plan.

1. Travel insurance incase delay or something not in your control, you mey get your money back.

2.Get a flight arrving before noon, Book blackcar service make sure inform that you are short of time make sure driver ready waiting for your arrivals, ( Wow transfer Miami recommended )
