Miami's beaches, restaurants and avenues are a meeting place for artists and intellectuals. The atmosphere is cosmopolitan and sophisticated, and the place is a mixture of natural beauty and urban dynamism. Miami has been depicted countless times in films and television, so it's worth a visit to directly experience its beaches, architecture, curious Caribbean-inflected cuisine and the unique personality of each of its neighbourhoods.
At the Hotel Riu Plaza Miami Beach, you'll find everything you need to enjoy your stay. Thanks to its excellent beachfront location, you'll be able to see the most emblematic places in the city and immerse yourself in the Miami atmosphere.
Discover the best of Miami
Miami has countless places to explore, so you won't have time to get bored. You can start with the famous South Beach neighbourhood, the site of the Hotel Riu Plaza Miami Beach, and explore the Art Deco district with its fantastic architectural legacy; the area around Española Way, with its numerous art studios and galleries; and Lummus Park Beach, a perfect place to stroll and enjoy lovely views of the coast. And very nearby you'll find Miami Beach, where you can take a stroll on its famous boardwalk.
Another area you can't miss is the Coral Gables neighbourhood, where you'll find the Lowe Art Museum and the diverse art galleries that surround it. If you prefer nature, we recommend a walk through Matheson Hammock Park and the 83 hectares of the city's impressive botanical garden. And just a few blocks away is Coconut Grove, a formerly bohemian neighbourhood that subsequently attracted more affluent residents who built fantastic mansions worthy of admiration; and Little Havana, an animated Cuban neighbourhood that's full of life, street music and murals.
And if you want to get away from the bustle of the city, don't hesitate to take an excursion to Everglades National Park, a unique natural wonder and one of the wildest areas of the United States, or visit Key Biscayne, an island off the southern coast, where you can learn about the history of the country in just a few square kilometres.
