    Recommended: If you've just travelled from Chicago and you have a son called Kevin, then please make sure that he's with you. If not, he's probably in NY fending off burglars at your brother's house. Read more

    25min drive away from Miami Beach (when there is no traffic). It has many concourses, kind of big. Car rental area is 3min tram ride away. Could be long lines in checkin and security, give extra time.

    If you travel to LAS Vegas choose a seat on the right side of the plane and you will get great views of Grand Canyon and Hoover dam

    Unique way to get free wifi is going to gate D30 (aa admirals club) and connecting to "attwifi", you can sit just in front of admirals door and still get a good signal.

    It’s still ludicrous that in 2018 one of the busiest airports in the world doesn’t have free WiFi

    It's absolutely ludicrous that in 2015 one of the busiest airports in the world has horrendously slow WiFi that you have to pay to use. Get with the times MIA; Get Google Fiber & make it free for all.

    I love that you can take a train in to the airport now. Picking up friends and family when they come in to town is quick and easy, thanks to the sunpass parking feature too.

    MIA has gotten act together. Great restaurants, shops and selection of clubs and lounges. Flagship AA is fantastic. Centurion is as well for PlatAmex. Great views and easy skylink movement btw gates.

    A lot of walking to get from the international arrival gates to passport control, if you dont have Global Entry, don't forget to download mobile passport and skip the huge lines.

    Welcome to Miami! Bienvenido a Miami! Miami is also known as "the 305" and 3:05 p.m. is also our official Cuban coffee break time! Indulge in some local culture and @305cafecito!

    Bienvenido a Miami! The food is delicious at MIA. Go local with Sushi Maki, La Carreta or Versailles. If you need a pick-me-up, grab an iced café con leche & pastelito before departure.

    Pretty fuss free for a US airport. Easy to navigate and conveniently connected to car rental centre via a mover system. There are a few terminals, so make sure you know which one your airline is at.

    Vast but pleasant airport with underwhelming wifi and quantity of charging stations. But yes, the food options are good and the Xpress Spa is a nice place to decompress from travelling stress.

    When buying at Duty Free Americas use the one that is closest to your gate, they all sell basically the same and the delivery at the gate is way much easier 😊

    This is a HUGE airport. If you rented a car be prepared to walk a mile to get to the reservation desk. Lots of great restaurants and stores in the airport.

    The airport is very nice. A big difference from the way it looked when it still had a 70's look. The gem here is the American Express lounge. They're rare and exclusive, but worth it.

    This airport offers American Airlines Flagship Check-in for those passengers with access to it and it is kinda tucked away so you will need to look for it, but you'll find it

    Always full of surprises. People doing impromptu concerts & such...or maybe just in my layovers. Stop by Ice Box Cafe for a great slice of cake while you wait. Bring clorox wipes to bathroom.

    Be patient with your flight crew and pilots, they work away from home most days out of the month and although it can be a fun job it's not always as glamorous as it sounds. It's hard work! :)

    Chills ( G concourse) is the best place to eat if you want a meal. If just looking for some Cuban sandwiches look for Las Carretas on 1st floor on terminal F.

    North terminal has tons of fantastic food, especially Cuban. Check out La Carreta around D36, Kuva at D19. Cafe Versailles for medianoche and a cortadito.

    Check out Versailles for some fresh guava pastries. If you're not from Miami and have never tried a guava pastry - trust me - you won't regret it.

    Most inefficient, uninspired, dysfunctional major airport in the US. Perfect blend of poor design and utter apathy. Pre-✅ closes at 4pm daily. Overcrowded. Understaffed. Get drunk prior to arrival.

    In and out is rough. Car rental is far from terminal. But if you're stuck at the airport fir a while there are great food options!

    The admiral lounge costs 50. Worth it! Great for long layovers, cheaper than hotel, unlimited coffee, drinks, etc. also has showers. And you get two drink tickets an free wifi. Fantastic deal.

    Take the 150 bus from MIA transit area near rental car terminal to Douth Beach in 30 min for only 2.35! It's a steal and a deal! Plenty of suitcase room too!

    With the newly renovated Terminal D functioning like a mini Miami, you can enjoy favorite local destinations before you even leave the airport, like Ice Box Café, Café Versaille, and Books & Books. Read more

    The best and fastest pick up car rental is Alamo. I’ve lost more than 30min to rent at Sixty. Alamo has self-check stations. (This is not a sponsored review)

    A great place to exercise. The AA terminal has long walks between gates, so it's advisable to wear comfort shoes. Instead of taking the skytrain, walk to ur gate or up and down the steps to the train

    If traveling during American holidays give yourself at least 2 hours minimum, safer bet is 2.5 hours! American Airlines terminal is the best! So much variety you’ll never be bored!

    If you are cruising or leaving in the evening, the hotel by E concourse has a day rate from 10-6p. Worth every penny. Quiet, comfy beds, dark and chill.

    La Carreta” it's a really nice place for sandwiches. Near to the gate D30 grab the Cuban a typical Florida's one. Also a bag of plateen sliced chips!!

    If you are departing from terminal F, do all your shopping and eating BEFORE you enter F. F only has 3 shops and 3 snack places; crappy. Outside F, MIA offers a wonderful array of shops and eateries.

    If your in the Miami Airport, don't miss La Carreta Cuban Cuisine by gate D37. Try the Ropa Vieja with plantains and rice coupled with a Cafe con Leche Coffee for a perfect meal.

    Going on a cruise & renting a car the day before? Alamo has a bus to the port after you drop off your car. If you rent a car on your return, there is a Alamo bus ride back too.

    If you're flying out of Concourse D (and have time to kill) go to the end of the terminal btwn gates 1-24 for a fantastic selection of shopping & food. Ice Box Cafe is a MUST, especially the breakfast

    If you live in Miami, travel to J South on your day off and watch the flight attendants take their high healed shoes off in the security checkpoint and walk on their toes. It's exhilarating!
