Planning Your Visit
When to go?
The city's basketball team is called the Miami Heat for a reason. The tropical monsoon climate means it's always hot, although you can expect thunderstorms in summer and hurricane season runs for as long as June to November. Nevertheless, it's perfect for sunbathing in winter!
How many days?
Most of Miami Beach's best attractions can be covered in 3 or 4 days, but book at least a week if you want to see more of the city and/or go to the Everglades.
How safe is it?
Despite its depiction in movies, much of Miami is pretty safe. Like most cities though, it has parts tourists would be smart to avoid. High-crime areas include Biscayne Boulevard, Liberty City, Opa-Locka, and Overtown. Unlike the others, you might have reason to go to Miami's Downtown district, but stay alert, especially after dark.

What people are saying about Miami
Every thing was excellent in this tour organized by Hagen/Banana Joe Tours : Hagen was very organized (which comes as no surprise in the light of his German origins) & very informative. The tour itself exceeded my expectations ; we managed to see a handful of aligators & birds, & I was expecting to spot only a couple -at most- if we were lucky. Highly recommended as a half-day trip from Miami.
The guy doing our tour was amazing so funny. The only down fall is they didn't handle the line very well before boarding the boat. But it is a great trip to take.
my experience was amazing, I Had a great time with my family and friends. the drinks were amazing , I had the Pina colada and the tour guide was very funny.
Tour guide is fun, friendly…Tour is still starting on time, doesn’t matter how many people will be joined.
The commentator was really entertaining and knowledgeable. My husband and I enjoyed the tour.
