    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

    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.

    American Air: $90 to upgrade to First Class which includes 2 checked bags (would normally cost u $50 a bag anyway). Totally worth it for the express check in (5min vs 45min), the extra bag and room.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Getting into the city of Miami from the airport is cheap... and you can be at the beach in less than 30 minutes! As seen on Travel Channel’s The Layover with Anthony Bourdain.

    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.

    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.

    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

    Must visit: The Everglades, the largest subtropical wilderness in USA. A wonderland for wading species such as spoonbills, egrets etc. The only place in the world where alligators & crocodiles coexist

    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

    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! :)

    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.

    Terminal D starts in Miami and ends somewhere in Cuba. I recommend wearing fluorescent short shorts and rollerblading down the terminal to reach your gate faster (you'll also blend in with the locals)

    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.

    The top of the stairs at D60/D57 usually has a good sunset view. If you want truly good Cuban food, don't fool around with La Caretta. Sit down at the restaurant across from Wendy's (D12).

    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.

    Nice Airport. TSA PRE lane on terminal D took just 3 minutes to get thru. Cafe Versailles is Da Bomb! Order a Medianoche and Cafecito anytime, can't miss. The American Express Centurion Lounge...

    Get some Atelier Monnier macarons, Cuban coffee, and take the metro rail to/from the city for $2.50 instead of cabbing. It's quick, easy, and convenient.

    American has two nice Admirals Clubs in D. D15 is reasonably big. The one in high Ds is better. Private bath stalls, good bars & lots of outlets. Bring your own WiFi - TMibile always overloaded.

    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.

    Take the metrobus express route 150 to head to south beach. Only 2.35 one way. Cabs are 52 dollars! And there are only a few stops so don't worry about bad parts of the city.

    Tip 1) if you're being picked up, it's easier to be picked up in departures (upstairs). Tip 2) cell phone coverage is bad (especially at bag claim)... Arrange your pickup location beforehand.

    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.

    If you're flying American, get there early. This is a hub for the airline and lots of inexperienced vacation travelers make the security lines very slow moving.

    If you are stuck in D terminal there is only one place to go: The Bacardi Mojito bar with the new restaurant serves fresh salads, sandwiches and original recipes. Friendly service and a good bar.

    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 you want beach and party, try to find hotel near to Lincon Road, very nice street!! And if you like shopping, the mall in Orlando are cheaper even than duty free ;)

    Check prices from Fort Lauderdale if you're flying nationally, FLL is usually way cheaper!! And just 23 dolar share ride away (and the shared rides from there are allways almost empty!!)

    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.

    Car rental has never been more of a pleasure! Amazing set up that takes you on a 20 minute scenic tour by car and then a wonderful 5 mile stroll before you actually make it to security.

    When you get to baggage claim, go straight outside and grab a free Smartecart and save yourself 5 bucks. People that get taxis, Supershuttle, or picked up, leave them on the curb.

    When leaving the car rental lot the concrete messes with the gps and everyone gets on the road and has to slow down or stop before the first intersection to wait for the satellites to catch up. :-)

    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.
