    • Airport immigration lines, timing

      by jeanfinney Online Now Apr 1, 2014 at 9:31 PM

      Hi - I am an American citizen; I would be re-entering the country from Guatemala. My preferred ticket choice would go through Miami and I would have, if all is on time, one hour and forty minutes. In the past it was not necessary to collect one's bags in Miami, is this still true? Some friends going to Nassau from Gua just missed their connection, two hour immigration line, but they are not American (Kiwi, Aussie) - Is there a special line for American citizens? what do you think of this transit time? thanks!

      Miami for a day

      by Dabs Online Now Dec 26, 2012 at 2:34 PM

      I'm going to be flying into Miami in January on a Friday night pre cruise (landing 8:15pm), driving to Ft. Lauderdale to spend the night, hubby will do a swim in the morning and then we have all day Saturday and until about noon on Sunday to do something, both nights are booked and prepaid in Ft. Lauderdale.

      I think we will do a short Everglades tour on the day we return from the cruise, booked through the cruise line, but I thought Miami might be an enjoyable place to spend a day pre cruise. I enjoy looking at architecture and would love to try some Cuban food while there. I haven't done a lot of research but I will try to find some sample one day itineraries but 1st the pesky dull questions

      1) do I need to get a Sun Pass with my rental car? It's7.99 per day with Dollar which is a lot less than the other rental agencies for a Miami pickup, FLL dropoff. I'm guessing we will be driving to and from Miami, once on Friday at about 9 pm, twice on Saturday in the late morning and probably evening.

      2) if we can avoid toll roads without traffic headaches, are the toll roads clearly marked before you get on them? And if you do end up on one by accident, is there a way to pay the toll within a period of time like in Chicago where there's a number to call?

      3) good Cuban restaurant in Miami or Ft. Lauderdale or en route?

      4) parking, is Miami a "park and leave the car" destination or a "drive and find a spot" destination?

      Advice for 10 hour layover

      by milliturtle Online Now Sep 7, 2012 at 3:06 PM

      Hi, we have booked our tickets to La Paz on AA. We will arrive at around 1:30pm and our connecting flight will not leave till around 11:30pm. We are pre cleared in Canada and should only have carry on bags, so we should be able to get out pretty quickly. We are either leaving our carry on at the left luggage and take the bus or if we can get a deal, rent a car. Do you have any suggestions on how we can kill our time? We would like to walk around and try some Cuban food if possible. I think everglades might be typo far though.

      Another thing is that we both have nexus, so in theory should not need as long to go through customs again but if any one have real life examples, please share.

      Would love an amazing dinner suggestion, Im in the industry, and i eat everything!
      Is there a point to downtown at all? Im confused, seems quiet.

      Jogging in Miami (South Beach to Brickell Key and Back)

      by mydreamquest Online Now May 21, 2012 at 3:13 PM

      I am trying to map a running route from South Beach (Lummus Park) to Brickell Key and Back. It appears that the McArthur Causeway is the quickest way to get from South Beach to Brickell Key.

      Was curious, is Star Island accessible? Was thinking of doing a 16 mile run from Lummus Park, along the MacArthur Causeway thru downtown to Brickell Key, around the circumference of the key and back with a detour along the circle in Star Island, then back on South Beach to Lincoln, down Lincoln and then down Espanola then back to the park.

      Are there any barriers to the route I am making?

      Next moth I will be traveling to the US (2 weeks: Miami, DC and NYC). Since international roaming is extremely expensive, I am wandering if I can buy a micro SIM card for my iPhone 4S which is factory unlocked. Then I would like to know if I can top it up with a "pay as you go" data plan. I am mainly interested in 3G connection (web surfing, mail checking) and also SMS texting. I have read some ambiguous comments on internet. Apparently only AT&T offers such plan. Can anybody help me with this?

      Hey all, first time poster!

      In Orlando for 2 weeks this year, but 1st April we are going to Miami for WrestleMania 28. Cost of fuel or flights + hotels + parking etc on their own = big$$£££.

      This is where I came across this on Attraction Tickets Direct, for £110 - Coach transport there and back, a trip on the Everglades, snake and alli handling and a night in a hotel in the Deco District, now to me that is a bargain price and considering it saves us the hassle of driving ourselves and finding own accomodation etc I am very inclined to book this.

      But being the skeptic I am, it just seems too good to be true!!

      Has anyone done this before and if so what are your opinions on it? Ideal for us really, just after some opinions from those who've booked it before.

      Or if not, any other recommendations on staying cheaply in a decent part of Miami for a night?
