Florida’s mecca of fun in the sun, the lively tropical metropolis of Miami is one of the world’s top vacation spots.
You'll get in some beach time at South Beach and Bal Harbor Beach. Step off the beaten path and head to Lock & Load Museum and Bal Harbour Shops. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Lincoln Road, admire the landmark architecture of Art Deco Historic District, shop like a local with Bayside Marketplace, and browse the different shops at Dolphin Mall.

Start your trip to Miami by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

Bogota, Colombia to Miami is an approximately 8-hour flight. Prepare for much warmer weather when traveling from Bogota in August: high temperatures in Miami hover around °C and lows are around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sun) so you can drive to Fort Lauderdale.
