Miami

Miami

Miami boasts glamour, elegance and a cosmopolitan attitude, and as it is nestled on the Atlantic coast of Florida’s most southern tip, this beaming city is also sunny and pleasantly warm all year round. To just call this metropolis international is an understatement of criminal proportions, due to its North American core with a twist of Caribbean culture, a healthy dose of Latin America, a dash of Africa, a touch of Asia and a hint of Europe. All these elements and their fascinating blend give Miami a vibrant and exhilarating cultural life.

The Ancient Spanish Monastery

The structure was originally built in Spain, and went through a hard time during the First Carlist War. The building was seized and turned into a granary until it was purchased in 1925, disassembled, put into boxes and shipped to the US. The freight went through even more struggle while being transported, but, despite all that, the monastery can now be admired in North Miami Beach.

Best Time to Visit

As Miami has a long and beautiful season of summer all year long, deciding on when to visit Miami mainly depends on what you are looking for and what you expect: while spring is ideal for enjoying outdoor activities and venues, the summer gets quite hot and somewhat deserted – keep in mind that these seasons have the highest threat of hurricanes. During the fall, Miami comes to life again with its many events such as the Miami Art Week, while the winter attracts most visitors with its ever lasting sunshine and many events and adventures that are yet to come.
