What makes Miami a great destination

 Why Miamia

Will Smith already said it "Welcome to Miami", the city the city that keeps the roof blazin, and isn't that right!

Miami is a fantastic experience, one of the hot spots in the world. Art deco South Beach with its vibrant night life and Versace Mansion, Little Havana - a Cuban haven, the beautiful harbor area of Coconut Grove where Dorothy Parker, a well known writer, and her friends stayed when they descended on Miami. One of Dorothy's famous quotes: "I don't know much about being a millionaire, but I'll bet I'd be darling at it."

Miami finds itself surrounded by treasures, like the stunning Keys - the former pirate islands that still exude charm, the Everglades - where alligators still rule and Boca Raton and Ft Lauderdale a little up North and exclusive!

We have a large port, a beautiful bay, tropical weather, sandy beaches, hip hotels, a buzzing nightlife and an international airport, all-in-all the perfect destination for your next incentive or event.
