This article on scuba diving in Florida is brought to you by OOFOS, whose flip flops with arch support are made with revolutionary Oofoam technology that absorbs 37 percent more impact than traditional foam footwear materials.
Florida offers an eclectic range of activities and excursions to the common tourist. Between Disney World, countless beaches, and a wealth of stunning state parks, the Sunshine State is home to some of the best adventures for families and outdoor enthusiasts alike. For scuba divers of all levels, Florida is one of the top destinations in the world with hundreds of locations that offer unparalleled opportunities for underwater exploration.
To get you ready for the next time you go scuba diving in Florida, we’ve highlighted our favorite dive spots and where you can camp nearby!
1. Biscayne Maritime Heritage Trail
Biscayne National Park is a gold mine when it comes to scuba diving, and it won’t be the last time it makes our list of the top spots for scuba diving in Florida. That said, the Biscayne Maritime Heritage Trail is a fully mapped, underwater trail that traverses six different wrecks, each of which contain different varieties of marine life and maritime artifacts. To add to that, like many of the places on our list, the water in and around the national park is extremely clear, making it a good spot for beginner to intermediate divers who prefer to view wrecks and other marine landmarks from slightly shallower depths.
Camp Nearby: Elliott Key campground
The Elliott Key campground is located within Biscayne National Park, and is located on Elliott Key, accessible by boat only. Elliott Key is Biscayne’s largest island. The campground includes fully functioning restrooms, picnic tables and grills. All campsites are reserved on a first come, first served basis, and camping is permitted in designated areas only.
“This park is all about the water. Awesome kayaking, snorkeling, and scuba diving. The water is beautiful, and the park itself is super relaxing!” —The Dyrt camper Sam D.
2. Molasses Reef
Easily one of the most popular locations for scuba diving in Florida, Molasses Reef is a shallow dive site perfect for beginners to the sport. Located in Key Largo just off of John Pennekamp Park, this is a prime location for many divers looking to test their skills and complete their all-important certification hours. Wildlife commonly sighted in the area includes eels, nurse sharks and several types of fish.
Camp Nearby: The Key Largo Kampground and Marina
Finding great diving and camping in Florida is easy done at The Key Largo Kampground and Marina, an RV and trailer-friendly campground that offers visitors the chance to stay in close proximity of the water. Each site includes water and electricity, and there are two bathrooms at the campground with showers and full facilities.
“Nice campground all the way around; great staff, nice clean restrooms and showers, beautiful beach within the campground itself, nice pool, secure, and if I left anything out I didn’t mean to. Loved this campground all the way around!”
3. Devil’s Den
This unique scuba diving destination is a privately owned training center that owns one of the most unique dive spots in the country. Devil’s Den is an underground spring that is set inside of a dry cave, which has resulted in the preservation of ancient rock formations and fossils dating back 33 million years. Since the diving area is contained, it’s an ideal spot for beginners interested in exploring this prehistoric site.
Camp Nearby: Devil’s Den Spring
The Devil’s Den Spring offers camping onsite, with cabin, RV and tent sites. There are four cabins along with 32 RV sites, the majority of which offer electricity, water and sewer hook-ups. The tent sites also have water and electricity. Devil’s Den offers bathroom and shower facilities to campers, as well. All accommodations are located in the tree-laden wilderness surrounding the spring.
“Beautiful grounds. Separate tent and RV camping. Beautiful cabins and pool. But the highlight of camping here is being able to explore Devils Den while snorkeling and or diving.” —The Dyrt camper Jeanene A.
This dive resort is located on the largest clear water cavern in the country, with more than 100 feet of depth and extremely temperate waters (72 degrees) all year. Since it’s isolated and well run by the team at the Blue Grotto, this cavern is a great spot for divers of all skill levels and lifelong snorkelers looking for an introduction to scuba diving in Florida. The Cave within the Blue Grotto is another must-see aspect of the underwater cavern, as its rock formations are completely undisturbed and visible in their natural, fragile state. An array of wildlife is also visible throughout the cavern, including several species of fish and the ever-loved Floridian sea turtles.
Camp Nearby: The Blue Grotto Campground & Cabins
The Blue Grotto does offer their own cabins for rent for as low as $68 a night. Camping is also available on-site, with tent and RV sites available to guests who want to extend their Blue Grotto scuba diving vacation.
5. Copenhagen Wreck
Another popular diving destination, the Copenhagen wreck is located along the eastern side of the Pompano Drop Off. The ship ran aground in the early 1900s, and, after sinking, has become a flourishing artificial reef for several species of marine wildlife. Given that the wreck itself is well over 100 years old, this location serves as a point of interest for both historical and ecological reasons.
Camp Nearby: The Breezy Hill RV Resort
The Breezy Hill RV Resort is just minutes from the Copenhagen wreck site and offers RV-only camping perfect for families on their Overseas Highway family road trip. The campground includes a clubhouse, a swimming pool, Wi-Fi, a game room and even a library, making it a great place to relax after your daily scuba diving adventure.
6. Biscayne National Park – Half Moon Preserve
Biscayne’s second-most popular diving destination, the Half Moon is a shipwreck formerly known as “the Germania.” The Half Moon wrecked in the 1930s and spent more than 50 years underwater before being discovered in 1987. After being re-discovered, the region where the Half Moon lay was declared an archaeological preserve. Since the ship lies on its port side, its divability remains very high. Visitors to the region can explore solo or with guides to get the richest experience possible.
Camp Nearby: Boca Chita Key
Boca Chita Key is the most popular island in Biscayne National Park and offers an array of excellent campsites, including a large, grassy area with waterfront views. Like Elliott Key campground, Boca Chita is reachable by boat alone. Boca Chita does offer toilets, although all other amenities (including water) need to be brought by guests ahead of their stay.
7. Dry Tortugas National Park
Located just west of Key West, Dry Tortugas is made up of the seven islands of the same name. Luckily for the diving enthusiasts among us, the coral reefs in this area are some of the best-preserved habitats in the country; they are also the least interfered with among all of the Florida Keys. There are several aspects of Dry Tortugas that make it an ideal scuba destination, not the least of which are the shipwrecks and beautiful coral reefs, which serve as a home to countless species of marine life. The park also includes a number of underwater trails, many of which offer excellent clarity and the chance to see both sea turtles and ancient ships.
Camp Nearby: The Garden Key campground,
The Garden Key campground, located within Dry Tortugas National Park, is the only way to camp in close proximity to the park’s scuba diving trails. The Yankee Freedom Ferry transports 10 passengers per day, and the sites at Garden Key campground are all primitive. All supplies, food and water must be purchased in advance.
“What a unique experience camping on a deserted island! Overall, it’s an amazing experience that I’d love to do again someday.” —The Dyrt camper Melissa W.
8. DEMA Trader
Another of Florida’s famous wreck dives, the DEMA Trader is a highly explorable wreck that offers great clarity and interesting wildlife. Although most wrecks off the coast of Florida can be explored with relative safety, this one in particular has holes cut into the side of it, making casual exploration as easy as it is safe. Visibility is often as good as 60 feet.
Camp Nearby: Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park
Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park is almost directly in line from the DEMA Trader wreck. The state park doesn’t offer organized campgrounds but does allow campers to tent camp at primitive sites complete with grills, fire pits and tent platforms. The park does offer restrooms and cold showers as well.
9. Looe Key – National Marine Sanctuary
Looe Key Reef is a highly touted region for scuba diving in Florida that attracts divers from all over the world on a regular basis. Since it’s labeled a National Marine Sanctuary, Looe Key Reef enjoys exceptional populations of fish as well as a well-preserved coral reef. The reef is a U-shape and stretches 200 yards long with an average width of 800 yards. The diving area is highly accessible and incorporates a wide variety of depths, making it friendly to both beginners to diving as well as advanced scuba divers. Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful reefs in the world, Looe Key Reef is a must-visit for anyone interested in scuba diving in Florida.
Camp Nearby: Bahia Honda State Park
Bahia Honda State Park is located just 15 minutes from Looe Key Reef and offers three different camping areas within the park for a total of 80 sites (RVs and tents permitted on all sites). The state park also offers restrooms, hot showers and several other activities and amenities on-site, including kayak rentals, a hard-surface bike path, a pool, snack bar and seasonal guided tours.
“I love this place! I always go at the end of May (yes it is hot, but no it is not busy) and while the space itself is breathtaking, the location is great too and provides a lot of opportunity to explore all the keys. Be sure to catch the sunset on the bridge and get plenty of snorkeling in. The sand bar goes way out and there is SO much to see!” — The Dyrt camper Ronnie M.
10. Ginnie Springs
Similar to other springs in the area, Ginnie Springs is a gorgeous, multi-faceted region that offers a diverse range of activities for eager scuba divers and outdoor enthusiasts. The Ginnie Spring itself is more than 15 feet deep and 100 feet wide and is part of a line that leads into the Santa Fe River, a nearby destination that also offers some of the best scuba diving in Florida. Officially called “The Ballroom at Ginnie Spring,” the foremost dive site at Ginnie Springs is a large, open cavern that’s safe and spacious enough to accommodate even beginners to the sport of cave or cavern diving. Lights are given to divers to navigate the cavern, and “The Ballroom” itself offers incredible natural beauty with its reflective limestone walls and well-preserved geologic formations.
Camp Nearby: Ginnie Springs Campground
Ginnie Springs offers its own campground to visitors looking to expand their opportunities for scuba diving in Florida. For tent campers, no reservations are required, and all sites are occupied on a first come, first served basis. The campground offers 200 acres of wooded seclusion, including campsites that are in close proximity of both the springs and the Santa Fe River, which is popular in the summer for floating. In addition to the tent sites, there are more than 120 sites equipped with water and electricity. These sites can be reserved and offer spaces for tents or RVs.
“This is one of my favorite Florida campgrounds. It’s privately owned so the rules are less strict than a state park. They have over 200 acres of camping, seven natural springs and you can camp in nature without feeling like you’re in a campground. Great place for snorkeling, scuba diving, paddle boarding, tent and RV parking and day trips. I highly recommend this campground!” —The Dyrt camper Emily J.

TriSynerg Diving Camps @ Indiana University
My vision for the TriSynerG Camp, Club, and Store here at Indiana University
My mission for several decades has been to provide the best diving training programs for beginners, developing athletes, high school/college competitors, and international stars. I believe with conviction that, for all ages and ability levels, the “best” is achieved only with a balanced blend of sport, culture, and education. This balanced approach, epitomizing the original Olympic vision, is critical to maximizing success in diving, in sport, and in life.
In order to continue to implement this vision, our organization has built a staff with the same vision and capabilities. Over the next several years we will be extending our developmental offerings to include leading-edge diving training and educational opportunities, cultural and ethical athletic development, and an enhanced focus on health and wellness of the body, mind and spirit to deliver the best athletes in the history of sport. All these efforts will be under the name TriSynerG which represents my belief that being the best one can be in sport, culture, and education has a synergistic effect.
To that end, my wife Jenny and I built an organization with strengths in key areas to successfully implement our vision:
Jenny Keim-Johansen is the co-founder and intricate part of this business. She is the Assistant Diving Coach of the Olympic Performance Squad that train here in Bloomington, Indiana. She works with me daily to coach the athletes, assist with the synchronized teams, and oversee season planning and travel. Her experience as an athlete and as a coach are priceless assets to our Olympic Performance Squad as they prepare for the Olympics in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil in August 2016. Jenny was a gymnast under Bela Karolyi, as a diver was a two-time NCAA champion and a three-time US finalist in the Olympics (1996, 2000), all done while earning her bachelor’s degree with honors, cum laude from the University of Miami. Jenny has served as a Head Diving Coach in two different power-five universities, and has coached many Junior Olympic champions and a NCAA champion. Jenny has a complete understanding of the technical, physical, educational, and personal development needs of divers as they progress into excellence. Her email address is [email protected].
Steve Keim is a senior level consultant for TriSynerG. He has spent a career in marketing and business development, with a focus on service businesses and childhood development. His background includes study and publishing in psychology, international experience, and years at the helm of numerous business ventures. He provides the operational skills and entrepreneurial spirit that any successful business needs. His email address is [email protected].
We also have also retained a support staff of social media professionals, videographers, and photographers to reinforce the roughly 35 coaches and counselors supporting our developmental effort. The social media, photography, and videography experts will continue to build the diving video library and help publish results (and dives) of meets for the diving community.
I will continue to focus on coaching and educating. Importantly, I will continue to stay on the leading edge of this sport to deliver a positive impact on every person that participates in our program at the club, camp, collegiate and Team USA level. These efforts will include the innovative use of technology, psychology, bio-feedback, and videography to improve our application of the water belts, dryland facility, and to create new training techniques. My email address is [email protected].
I will also use my continuing position as a Team USA Coach to maximize these athletes’ results by implementing the TriSynerG philosophies at the highest level of the sport. I am confident that we are taking the steps necessary to create a rich and comprehensive diving program which will advance the sport, our divers, and the role of sport in developing our future leaders.

Patriots Unfiltered Q&A: Diving into training camp
How do you see the outlook at slot for 2021? Replacing [Julian] Edelman is not an easy task. You think Gunner [Olszewski] might step up? Rick Malec
I’d like to see Gunner emerge as a viable receiving option, especially on the heels of his 2020 All-Pro punt return performance. He, like Meyers, is another player who’s developed from an undrafted, virtual unknown rookie into a legitimate NFL player, though he still has considerable room to grow as a route-runner and pass-catcher. In my estimation, he has similar qualities to what Edelman brought to the table and thus, I’d like to see him fulfill that potential by becoming a more well-rounded receiver/returner in 2021. – Erik Scalavino
What is the difference between kick and punt returners? Isn’t it the same job essentially? It should be a position that one man does both. Also, has anyone ever used one kicker for field goals and punts? Again, essentially the same job and would save roster spots. It’s not like it’s a demanding job! Jeff McCarroll
There’s actually a lot more to both jobs than you suggest, Jeff. Yes, on the surface, one player is simply catching a ball that’s kicked to him and trying to avoid 11 opponents to get to the end zone; the other is the one kicking the ball.
However, the differences, while nuanced, are important, which is why teams don’t typically have the same player do both jobs. The kickoff returner generally has more time to watch the ball travel to him because he’s further back from the kicker than a punt returner. What’s more, the way the blocking is set up for a kickoff return is different than a punt return, so, a kickoff returner usually has more of a chance to see where he wants to go with the ball.
Punt returners need to have their wits about them more often because the distance the ball travels is usually shorter than a kickoff, meaning the opposing players are bearing down on them more quickly. This requires a more shifty kind of player than a kickoff returner, who can get a running start more frequently. Some players have been able to return both kicks and punts, but it’s also coaching decision sometimes to prevent one player from being subjected to the often jarring hits that occur on special teams.
As far as kickers go, the technique for field goals and punts is entirely different, and both specialists do a LOT of kicking throughout the practice week. This takes a heavy toll on the player’s legs and backs. So, while it might not seem like a very taxing job because they’re only on the game field a few times per week, they’re doing a lot more when you don’t see them (i.e., on the practice field).
Kicking has become such a specialized position that you almost never see one player do both jobs anymore. One of the last players to do so in college was Jason Hanson, who enjoyed a long, productive career with the Detroit Lions as their primary field goal kicker. But even way back then, in the early 1990s, the Lions asked Hanson to focus solely on field goal kicking and kickoffs, as good a punter as he was in college, too.
Generally speaking, guys who return punts or kicks can fill in at the other spot if needed; same goes with kickers and punters. This might be another reason why coaches are more likely to have separate players perform the various jobs. Think about it, if you only had one player as your kick/punt returner and he gets hurt, you still need to have a backup. You might be able to fill it in a pinch with a skill position player, but that guy wouldn’t have nearly the experience needed to give you any sort of confidence putting him out there in what can be a critical situation.
And if you had just one kicker/punter and he were to get hurt in a game, you’re less likely to have a competent replacement lying in wait on the bench. So, it makes a lot of sense to have different players do the different jobs, while serving as backups for the others. – Erik Scalavino
What do you think about the new league rule allowing skill players to wear single-digit numbers? Jackson Sanford III, Waynesville, NC
It’s taking some getting used to, I’ll admit, because I’ve grown accustomed to associating certain number ranges with certain positions. This now gives the NFL more of a college look. But the players are clearly happy with it, seeing how many of them have chosen to take advantage of the opportunity. I don’t really have any problem with the rule. – Erik Scalavino

Miami Playa | Arenda Costa Dorada

In this environment, it is easy to relax, play active games, do sports, have a drink in bars or eat in restaurants, which you will find right on the beach.

Discover the beauty hidden in each of Miami Playa’s beaches and coves. Of course, you will be impressed by our beaches and coves.
Enjoy your holiday in Miami Playa
Miami Platja, commonly known as Miami, is a small coastal town in the municipality of Mont Roig del Camp, which is located about 15 kilometers away. This town is remarkable because it is considered one of the cleanest and most well-groomed in the entire Mediterranean.
Miami consists mainly of holiday apartments and private villas, as well as small hotels, as it is a resort specializing in family vacations. Miami’s commercial activities are centered around Avenida Barcelona (formerly Nacional N-340). Its coastline consists of the main beach, Playa Cristal, and a number of smaller coves that are no less remarkable. Most of the beaches and coves of the coast are marked with the Blue Flag, a special award for the cleanliness and improvement of the coastline.
The story of Miami Playa begins in 1952 at the initiative of Marcelino Escius, who was so fascinated by the beauty of the landscape that he decided to create a corner that the whole world could enjoy. From that moment on, Miami began to rapidly grow and build up until it turned into the city that we know it today.
The location of Miami Playa undoubtedly makes it unique – the unique panoramic views and the exceptional Mediterranean microclimate allow us not only to enjoy summer evenings, but also mild temperatures during the rest of the year.Miami, with all its charms, has earned the title of one of the main tourist centers of the Costa Dorada.
Miami Tourism On vacation with children Miami and culture Beaches and covesMiami Tourism
Miami Playa was created with the aim of becoming a paradise where you can spend your holidays both in summer and at any other time of the year. This is a small corner of the Gold Coast, which attracts connoisseurs of quality beaches that are not crowded with tourists.
A good starting point for exploring Miami is Avenida Barcelona, in the heart of the city. Here you will find all kinds of restaurants with a wide range of Mediterranean cuisine with paella and top quality seafood, and there are also some very good Italian pizzerias.On vacation with children
Those who have children know how difficult it can sometimes be to keep the kids from getting bored, but in Miami it won’t be a problem.
Over the past 2 decades, Miami has earned the status of a family tourism destination. It is for families that a quiet, measured holiday in Miami is suitable. There is a large concentration of private villas that are within walking distance of the beach, which is so important when vacationing with small children. Older children are always happy with the large pool at the house, where they will spend most of their holiday. Water attractions on the beach are also important for them. In addition, it is very important for parents that the beach is comfortable and not crowded with vacationers, which, unfortunately, is too common on the beaches of Spain.Every year more and more European tourists choose Miami for their holidays.
If your kids are already tired of the beach, no problem: Port Aventura theme park, one of the most famous in Spain, is just 18 minutes away. There you will find many attractions and shows for very young children as well as for those who are older. In addition, a new part, Ferrari Land, was recently opened in the park, just for the fans of this famous Italian car.
Port Aventura’s and adjacent Caribe Aquatic Park is an impressive water park where adults and children can have a great time.
Another ideal option for children is a trip to the Aquopolis water park in La Pineda, a 20-minute drive from Miami Playa, which consists of many water slides and pools.
In case your vacation starts in September, don’t miss the pirate party in Miami (la Fiesta Pirata), which is celebrated on the first Saturday of the month.Both locals and tourists come here.
Cycling enthusiasts can rent various types of bicycles.
In the vicinity of Mont Roig you will find more than 130 pistes, divided into 10 routes. This will allow you to discover the uniqueness of the wheeled environment.
Fishing, sailing, surfing and diving are also popular here. You can go hiking in the mountains or just take a walk in the surroundings, enjoying the extraordinary beauty of the local nature.Miami and culture
For those looking for a relaxing holiday, Miami Playa is exactly what you need. Do you like church tourism? Do not forget to visit the chapel of the Holy Virgin de la Roca (Ermita de la Virgen de la Roca), the place of worship of the Holy Virgin Mary, which has inspired great artists such as the famous Joan Miró. There are wonderful views of the coast from there.
Another temple to visit is the church del Peyro.It is advisable to go there on foot, the walk does not require much physical effort. After visiting the temple, you can dine al fresco in the picnic area near the chapel in Pinar del Peri.
The new Church of the Archangel Michael (la Iglesia Nueva de San Miguel Arcangel) is known as the Baix Camp Cathedral because of its large size. It began construction in 1801 and is still unfinished, like the Sagrada Familia, but it is accessible for visits during the service.
If you are into museums, we recommend visiting the Sole Museum of Olive Oil in Mont Roig, where you will learn how the Sole family started their olive oil company, see the tools that were in use at the time, and is, of course, the process of making precious olive oil. The Miro Center is also very interesting, where there are several works by Joan Miro, inspired by the landscapes of Mont Roig and its surroundings.Beaches and coves
If we are talking about Miami, we must mention its best beaches and coves, because, of course, you came here to enjoy the sun and sea. Great, Miami has 12 kilometers of coastline, with four beaches and nine coves of fine sand and crystal clear waters.
The most famous beach is Playa Cristal, which has all kinds of services and can be reached on foot if your apartment or villa is located in Pino Alto.After him is Playa de la Porquerola, the longest and narrowest and least visited; Peixerote Beach and Playa Larga are also impressive, the latter being 600 meters long.
If you prefer something less crowded, we recommend the coves that start with California Cove and Bot Cove, which are adjacent to each other and are ideal for those who like to spend a lot of time in the water. Likewise, Santa Fe Cove and Del Mysteri Cove form a double cove, the largest in Miami Playa.
Cove del Solitario is the most isolated and cozy, ideal for a relaxing holiday. The cove de las Sirenas is the best for those who like to enjoy the beauty of nature. It is one of eight bays that are categorized as protected natural areas. At the very end, we will mention Viennese Bay, which is the smallest, but at the same time the most beautiful.
As you can see, Miami Playa has a lot to offer you.Don’t miss the opportunity to visit this beautiful Mediterranean city and enjoy a time where adventure, culture and gastronomy merge for your complete enjoyment.90,000 The whole truth about Miami. | Grand Mir
The first thing we come across when buying a tour to Miami is a visa. Obtaining a visa to the United States is quite difficult: firstly, a complex package of documents, and secondly, a personal visit to the consulate (depending on your documents to Kiev or Moscow).Of course, travel agencies help with obtaining a visa, but no one can guarantee a positive response from the consul. But when you get the coveted visa, then there is only one step to Miami!
The flight to the dream city is quite long – about 12 hours, but this is not a problem at all, since you will be transported by a transatlantic Boeing equipped with the latest technology. You can safely move on board, play computer games, watch TV. Unlimited provision of alcoholic beverages will be a pleasant bonus.But do not forget about the strict US rules, if you are under 21 years old or do not want to show your passport, you will only be allowed tea or water on board. Get used to it, there is a strict restriction on the sale of alcohol to minors throughout the country, including Miami.
A huge number of taxis and buses will meet you at the Miami airport. The most profitable for a tourist is to use the bus services (the fare to Miami Beach will be two dollars), in turn a taxi will take you for at least forty dollars.Miami city buses, as well as throughout the United States, are comfortable and air-conditioned. From the first minutes of driving, you will immediately begin to love this country where everything is made for people: the cleanest streets, well-groomed lawns and the perfect roadway …
It is better to choose a hotel in Miami in close proximity to the famous Miami Beach and Collins Avenue, where the main club and resort life of the city is concentrated. Typical Miami hotels consist of one 4, 5-storey building, and an open-air cafe, which can be visited by any tourist passing by.They are painted in vibrant pinks, greens, purples and stretch along a long beach. Hotels located on the first line from the beach are always expensive and noisy; Russians prefer to stay in them. On the second and third lines, they are more secluded and quiet, with fairly conservative prices.
However, Miami consists not only of Collins Avenue, but also includes a business center, Cuban quarters and the equally famous area of ”star” villas by the sea.
I decided to spend my vacation in Miami in a hotel located on the second line from the beach on Spanish street.It should be noted that the place turned out to be very colorful and bright. Walking the streets, you don’t expect to find yourself in Spain when you turn the corner, and that is exactly what it was. The whole street is decorated with Spanish lights, music played and the presence of a siesta was felt.
But back to Miami, so what can you see here. The excursion list is rather poor: a sightseeing tour, a crocodile farm, a zoo and a trip to Key West are the main attractions. The sightseeing tour includes a visit to the Cuban Quarter and celebrity villas.The Cuban Quarter is a part of that Miami that we won’t be shown on TV. Due to Cuba’s proximity, Miami is filled with expats, and these neighborhoods are poor, to say the least. Further, there is a complete contrast: you are brought to the port, where a trip to the “stars” villas is organized. So that you understand, about a hundred people get on a big ferry and take them along the villas, telling how much they cost and to whom they belong. The port itself is quite interesting and hosts free music concerts in the evenings.
Next excursion – crocodile farm.The farm is like a farm, nothing special, you can look at live crocodiles and try crocodile meat, that’s probably all. The zoo is also no different from the domestic ones, except that it is much cleaner there.
A trip to Key West, the southernmost city in the continental US, is the only excursion worthwhile. You are taken by bus over an eleven kilometers long bridge, washed on one side by the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and on the other by the Atlantic Ocean. The spectacle is stunning, mesmerizing spirit.This is the only city where there is no frost due to the proximity of the Gulf Stream. At your choice during the excursion, you can either walk around the city center, or go diving, going on an exciting sea voyage. Naturally, I chose diving, I saw the city, but there were not so many places for good diving in my life.
Basically, people come to Miami not for excursions and attractions, but for the famous club vacation. Miami’s nightlife is certainly striking in its variety, from foam parties in public pools to indoor private clubs.The majority of tourists spend their evenings either in such pools or in open-air bars. And so it happens, wandering around Miami Beach in the evening from one bar to another, or you don’t go into it at all, but watch the performances outside, dancing a little. Already drunk young people, who because of their age did not get into bars, meanwhile, aimlessly sit at the entrance, looking into the eyes of the guards. Is the picture of evening Miami already drawn? Add to that the strict law against swimming in the ocean at night.But do not despair, VIP clubs are a little deeper, first you need to stand in line at the entrance, go through the famous three controls: face control / dress code / age control, and then you find yourself in one of the famous Miami clubs. To have a good evening at the club, you need to spend an average of five hundred dollars. Yes, the clubs really amaze with their interiors, music and diverse audiences, from young African-Americans to older Japanese.
According to statistics, tourists come to Miami for ten days and, on average, spend a little more than a thousand dollars there on recreation and entertainment.This city has long been considered Russian, since most of the vacationers and those currently living are from Russia, and you will not be able to avoid compatriots. I want to note that this story is based on my subjective opinion, and it’s not a fact that Miami will have the same impression on you. However, I do not plan to return to this city, but with pleasure I will visit Hawaii again.
