Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Miami is tropical and the mix of Cuban/Latin, Caribbean and East Coast influences swirl together to form a culture that exists nowhere else. It is young, energetic, and rich in ethnic diversity. From a performance of a Latin ballet, to live Haitian music, to wild blue and green parrots in our backyard, peacocks roaming our street, or a day laying on the beach, Miami has many things to offer.
Throughout the year, you can chose from a variety of live music venues, art and cultural exhibitions (the world famous Basel) and fabulous upscale restaurants or local, simple but delicious restaurants where the main dishes are Cuban (yellow rice, black beans, fried plantains, ropa vieja) or Haitian (curried goat with congris) or Argentinean (steak with chimicchurri sauce) or Chilean (fresh seafood with onion and tomato salad and homemade sauces). We have a list at the house of our favorite places to eat!
The neighborhoods are interesting, from South Beach with its pastel-hued Art Deco buildings and white sand-covered beaches, to Little Havana, with it guayabera-clad men playing dominoes and drinking short, sweet shots of Cuban coffee, to the Everglades where you can see alligator wrestling, visit a Seminole Indian Village or take an airboat ride through the "river of grass".
Whether you are into sports (professional teams like the Marlins, Dolphins, Miami Heat), personal recreation (boating, wind surfing, skiing, golf, fishing, snorkeling), world famous shopping (Bal Harbor/ Aventura/South Beach), salsa or sunshine, Miami has a lot to offer.
