On a couple weeks I'll be travelling to Florida (Miami, Ft.Lauderdale, Orlando) from Costa Rica. I need a cell phone to be in touch with family and friends in Florida but since I'll be staying for just two weeks I don't want to take a contract or service plan. I can take with me an unblocked iPhone 4 that I use here in CR. So my question is: what kind of pre-paid cellphone should I get and how much would it cost? Or what kind of sim should I get to use with my unlocked iPhone 4 and how much would it cost? It would be nice to have internet access but it is not mandatory.
where can I get a list of the stores that are located in a courtyard like setup in Tarpon Springs. There's a shop that sells all Jimmy Buffet shirts, a Life is Good shop, clothing boutiques etc. I can't think of the name of the shopping area (the entrance is across from the sponge docks . I have been mostly finding the single stores that are right on Dodocanese ... this sits back and you kind of go through and archway
I'd like to write a review for a hotel that is not listed here. Is there a way for me to do so?
While in Miami Beach & Miami Area if you want to park on-street, how does that system work? What information do you have to input on those green parking poles (license plate, phone number,etc)? What payment method can you use and which one is the best/safest?
I'm from Brazil, and I and my girlfriend will be visiting Orlando for New Year's Eve. We've never been to Orlando, Miami or Florida.
We just got an idea to grab a couple of tickets for a Miami Dolphins game starting at 1:00pm on December 29th, so we're planning to drive from Orlando early in the morning, watch the game, stay a while in Miami and go back to Orlando at night.
We don't know anything about the traffic in this region, especially close to New Year's Eve, so my question is: is it possible for this plan to go wrong, due to very heavy traffic, closed roads or things like that?
I'm kinda worried because here in Brazil, on some holidays, a trip that normally takes 3 hours could easily turn into a 12 hour nightmare...
My family and I (a party of 7, 5 kids from 15 to 10) are spending two week in Florida. We are planning to visit theme parks in Tampa and Orlando and we need to rent a home in each location to fit all. We do not want to stay in Tampa or Orlando next to the parks, does anybody now a close but "not so close" location near Tampa or Orlando where me may rent a place to stay?
We will go back to Miami for the 4th time and we have made in the past several air boat tours in the Everglades near Miami or Florida City. On your opinion, what is the best choice you can suggest to me ? (We will rent a car).
We wish to find a one hour (or 45 min) tour with comments and some stops on the water and then a visit of a gator farm. We do not foresee to cross Florida to go to the West coast.
Thanks for the advices.
Plan to be in the Miami area with a car for a weekend in the beginning of February... want to see South Beach (walk, shop, dinner?) and also the Everglades (Shark Valley) and then fly out on Sunday. Looking for a reasonably priced hotel (no more than about $200), nice for mature adults, in safe area. Not necessarily at the airport since I have a car to return there.
What are my public transportation options to travel from Universal Studios Orlando to Kennedy Space Center,FL
from Kennedy Space Center,FL to ORL airport.
First time visiting the states next year with my wife and want some suggestions for places to stay for a week. Really dont want to spend more than $150 a night.
We wont have a car, and want somewhere close to beach, shopping and nightlife if possible. nightlife isnt so important as long as there are some decent places to eat/drink. Shopping for clothes and gadgets (for me). Beach , not bothered but must be clean and not too crowded.
My husband and I are interested in a few days camping in Florida north of Orlando, Tampa areas. After a weekend visiting family Thanksgiving in Palm Harbor and Tampa, we're looking for nature, birding, possibly swimming, not too expensive. We will have a car and tent camp gear and are considering Ocala NF, Withlacoochee SF, Chassahowitzka / Crystal River (manatees?). What are the temperatures, hunting, crowds / reservations or other places we should be considering? Thank you.
We have 8 adults and 5 children and wanting to stay a week in a vacation rental and only 2 days to Disneyworld, plus vehicle rental/s. I figure not staying right at Disney might be cheaper. Plus flying from Detroit to Orlando 13 seats. Does this maybe look familiar to anyone that's gone. Just want a round about amount of what the costs would be? Or anyone have any suggestions would be a great help..
Together with my wife and our 6 months baby I shall be in Miami in a couple of days and we're were planning to spend a day driving around Florida Keys. Do you recommend such a drive during this time of the year? Should we opt to reach Key West or you suggest we stop before to make the road shorter especially back to Miami?
Any feedback is very much appreciated!
Our plane does not leave the Tampa International airport until 7:30PM the Sunday our Carnival cruise ends early in the morning at the Seaport Street Terminal #2 . We would like to sightsee and lunch in the Tampa downtown area during the day if we can find a place to store our luggage. Does anyone know of a storage place at or nearby to the terminal? We plan to pick it up in time to take a taxi to the airport for the flight.
An alternative – which we haven’t even looked into yet - might be to find a car rental agency near the terminal, if there is one, do our downtown sightseeing, then drop off the car at the airport. However, we are not sure of the cost or the Sunday parking situation in downtown Tampa. Any advice would be very helpful. Thank you.
I have a group of about 20 people coming to Tampa for a cruise. All of us are flying in a couple of days early to enjoy some things Tampa has to offer. I was really trying to avoid having to rent a car. I was hoping there would be a hotel near a few things to do that offered shuttle service or some type of transportation that would accomodate everyone and also offer shuttle service to the port when we depart. Can anyone suggest a hotel? I was hoping to stay in the 85.00-150.00 range. Thanks so much for your help!!! I'm so lost!! Teresa
