My Miami travel guide includes things to do in Miami and where to visit during your stay in this ultimate Florida experience.

Too many boring travel guides are available these days for Miami and sadly are mostly all the same, that’s why I dug deep into this city to bring you the best hidden spots.

The places featured in my detailed video above are organized from the morning, afternoon towards the evening and nightlife so you can make the best out of your days in Miami.

Miami can be very expensive if you don’t know what you are doing but luckily there are some FREE things to do as well, like the Lincoln Parking deck view or sneaking into the Mondrian or Spa Standard Hotel to observe their gorgeous pools.

I personally recommend going all out because there are so many amazing things to do you do not want to cheap-out, saving up a few months extra will be worth every penny in the end. A very-rough budget for 1 awesome week per person would be around a $500 flight, $500 AirBnB and $1500 for Uber, shopping, food, events, museums & night time party = around $2500 to start.

Miami very widespread with many districts from Miami South Beach, which is its own peninsula, to the Wynwood Art District. Split up your days by having 2 days in Miami South Beach to visit Ocean Drive, Espanola Way and Lincoln Road. Spend the other days on day trips to downtown Miami, Wynwood, the Florida Keys and the incredible Everglades.

My favorite way to explore a city is by jogging, you’ll be surprised as to what you may find. A few of these photos where taken at places I randomly walked into, places you will never see on a guided tour.

Besides great hidden attractions; Miami also offers amazing restaurants like Sylvanos, great Italian cuisine at affordable prices and NaiYara, voted the best restaurant in Miami South Beach offering Thai-Japanese fusion cuisine with dishes like freshly made beef jerky, salmon tacos and ultra fresh sashimi. Try a piece of Ootoro (Blue fin tuna belly) sashimi before leaving! You won’t regret it.

Miami has many incredible pools but the ones that truly stand out is the infinity pool at the Spa Standard Hotel and the pool at the Mondrian Hotel visit these pools in combination with doing an Art Deco tour of Miami South Beach with places such as the Delano, Colony Theater, the Carlyle and Breakwater.

  1. **SPOILER
    Enjoy the clear water, 'cause that's about it.

    Expect:

    -Oversensitive snowflake exiles with an inferior/superior complex anywhere you go.

    -The worst traffic with the rudest drivers in the world (and I've been to L.A., N.Y. etc) anywhere you go.

    -Customer service mixed with ego on steroids.

    -If you don fashion the latest you're a nobody, anywhere you go.

    -Humidity in the mid-90's all the time, anywhere you go.

    -Walk Around accompanied/unaccompanied late at night and get shot, anywhere you go.

    -everything is expensive, anywhere you go.

    -There is a feeling of fake fun anywhere you go.

    -Cross the line to any neighboring county and you will notice a HUGE difference in people's attitude and the environment.

    -Astronomically overrated South Beach is a getto fabulous heaven anywhere you go.

    -Wynwood is just a couple of streets full of graffiti "art" right next to one of the worse neighborhoods, with tourists bring robbed at gunpoint all the time.

    Need I say more? Go to West Palm Beach, Naples, Cocoa Beach o even Hollywood right North of Miami and TRUST ME, YOU WILL ENJOY YOURSELF AND BE SAFE.

  2. I'm from Miami and all that he said is spot on!! Took me years of living here to know most of this, you got it all down in a short trip!

  3. The place is a cess pool. A cradle of corrupt politicians, high crime, insane traffic, #1 in every negative category you can think of, and let's not forget those lovely nasty/rude/obnoxious people. If you're a narcissist/masochist then south Florida is your purgatory playground.

  4. Nice video of Miami and Miami Beach. First of all Miami Beach is a playground for the upper classes thats why things are more expensive than other places. The Area is very beautiful because you pay for it. The working class non proffesionals that live here can't afford to do much because the cost of living is extremely high. Another issue here is the large homeless population that drift from spot to spot just trying to make it to another day. Here is the kicker large undocumented immigrant population that work in a lot of these properties with fake Social Security Number And live in an overcrowded apartment because of the high price of rental apartments. Get the picture Amigo!

  5. Looks so much fun there! Thank you for making this video this helped me because I’m moving to Miami actually.
    And I want to know how much dangerous here. You didn’t get any bad experience? Miami summary site told me some area is a gangs faction.

  6. I live between ny and Miami I hear the same things if You go to liberty city is worse than going to Harlem if you go to the ritz Carlton is not going to be Chip know your budget and you will have more fun than you could shake a stick to besides they are hotels in Miami for less than 100$ a night with accommodation and breakfast on ocean dr for about 7$ bucks I love new York which is a fascinating place but I must go back and recharge LOVE YOU MISS YOU and we will be back to MIAMI BEACH!!!!!

  7. You went to Miami Beach not Miami. Although within close proximity and its identity can easily overlap each other, at the end of the day its two different cities. Please don't confuse and misinform the viewers. Miami is a bilingual, Spanish/English speaking Latin city within the USA where the culture is undoubtedly a predominately Hispanic medley of countries from the Caribbean and South America with a dash of the British west indies. Very little to nothing in your video was about that.

  8. He got Wynwood right that's it. Locals party in Brickell Village, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, Merrick Park, South Miami we run from SoBe that's for suckers

  9. How would you go about sneaking into the hotels you mentioned in your description?! Sightseeing from the upper floors would be cool, and would also make good pictures!

  10. Yeah,Great spots if UR Wealthy,or Have an Expen$e acct; but all of them still terrific for those Who never Been to or tried any of them, & of course Lots of FREE Stuff/Events in That Area which is recommended for those on a`Budget'…Got it?

  11. Definitely no secrets here…the real Miami secrets are over the bridge…the real Miami food is in the heart of Miami lil havana, hialeaha, West miami, Kendall, westchester la sawasera you are in all the tourist spots..and the clubs your are going to are all tourist spots….you want real gator get out of the tourist BS and go West to mikosukee get you some real original gator bites not that flashy over priced BS….but then again clearly you are not from Miami so you don’t know the real secrets…us native Miamians do…as a matter a fact just stay in your tourist areas leave our genuine Miami culture alone…thanks for visiting my city.

  12. Yes… you missed the Biscayne Bay Tour of the Houses of The Rich and Famous…it's $26 for about 1.5 hours and you see also the beautiful Miami skyline. Very relaxing. Breathtaking views.
