When to fly
Miami enjoys a subtropical climate that ensures plenty of sunshine all year round. Sun protection is advised, even when temperatures are moderated by cool ocean breezes. Rainfall occurs mainly during summer and early autumn but that shouldn`t stop you from booking a cheap flight to Miami and enjoy what the city has to offer.
Tourists who are looking to escape the winter chill at home book flights to Miami from January through April when temperatures are in the teens to low 20s with blue skies and crisp air.
The weather in June, July, and August is extremely hot and humid with the possibility of rain almost every day, but this is also a good time to bag a cheap flight to Miami. However watch out for the hurricane season which officially runs from June to November.
May and October through early December can be great times to take a flight to Miami.

Miami is often called the "Gateway of the Americas" due to its cultural and linguistic ties to North, South, Central America, and the Caribbean. It lies between the Miami River, Biscayne Bay, the Everglades and the Atlantic Ocean.
South Beach is great for people-watching. Its ten miles of beach plays host to the beautiful (and sometimes eccentric) people. Don't forget the backdrop. The minute you step off your Miami flight and drive through the city the architecture will leave awe-inspired. The Art Deco district within South Beach has the largest concentration of Art Deco architecture in the world. In contrast, North Beach boasts examples of Miami Modernism architecture and uncrowded beaches.
Don't forget to take a trip to Little Havana. Close your eyes and you might even believe you are in Cuba. The sounds of salsa and merengue call out from stores while old men in guayaberas enjoy a cigar with their game of dominoes.
In addition to the city itself, there are some great day trips to indulge in. The Kennedy Space Center isn’t far, and the whole family can enjoy taking a virtual tour to the moon and back whilst enjoying views of the rockets. The Everglades are also within easy reach, and enjoying a ride through the waterways on an airboat is certainly a highlight to remember. Meanwhile, Biscayne Bay showcases the Miami skyline in real style, particularly for those enjoying a sunset cruise.
