From the airport to the hotel
An important tip for those who are not going to rent a car in Miami, is to book a transfer to go from the airport to the hotel (and/or vice versa). The advantages are several: appointment with the driver, security when having a private transport, comfort for those traveling with a lot of luggage, among others. To ensure a smooth and stress-free arrival at the hotel, we always reserve a transfer.
