    There are 6 adults in our group with a 7 hour layover. Heading to Aruba . Is it wise to go to South Beach


    You would have about 2 hours to spend there before having to go back to the airport. Traffic in Miami is pretty bad.


  • Connection time on Rome - Miami - Cancun route

    We are European citizens. At the end of July we will arrive from Rome to Miami with the Alitalia and go further with another airlines (separate ticket) to Cancun. Should we go through the immigration, pick up the luggages and check-in again? What time should we keep between the two flights to be sure to reach the flight to Cancun?


    Yes, upon arrival in Miami you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs. Then you will need to take your bags to your second airline and re-check them and go through security. You will need at least 3 hours for your transfer. You will also have to complete ESTA prior to your trip.

  • Three and a half hour layover in Miami
    Feb 9, 2015
    Hi. We are traveling to costa rica this Sat and have a three and a half hour layover in MIA. Both flights are american so I assume we will not have to do anything with our bags. Is this enough time to leave for a little while or do we need to remain in the airport the full time?


    It's not really enough time to see anything. Sure you could leave, the the Miami airport isn't really close to anything and there is very bad traffic around it.
