Miami is well connected to all the countries through flights. By Air there are two Major Commercial Airports for travel to in Miami, Miami International and Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport. Miami’s International Airport, located just west of the city, is an important hub for traffic between North America and Latin America, and is one of the largest airports in the world. The predominant carrier at MIA is American Airlines, which has direct flights to most major cities in the Americas and several European cities as well. Ft. Lauderdale Airport is farther away from Downtown Miami and Miami Beach but ticket prices tend to be cheaper flying into Ft. Lauderdale

Traveling from either airport to your final destination is not a problem. You can either catch a taxi or hire a car. Major car rental companies are present at both airports. However, driving in Miami is a different experience, a bit difficult as well. Also there is lots of traffic 24/7 on the streets.

If you are considering going by train, then there only one way of getting to Miami by rail which is Amtrak. Amtrak has daily trips to Miami. Amtrak’s Silver Service operates two trains daily to Miami from New York (city), Washington, D.C. and other cities along the Eastern Seaboard. There are frequent Tri-Rail trains every day to Miami from West Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale.

There is Greyhound Bus having three main terminals in Miami, which send off and welcome buses to and from Orlando, New Orleans, Atlanta, Washington DC, and New York City. The station is located just north of downtown Miami, on the waterfront if you are coming by Greyhound

Its easy to drive to Miami by car as Miami is at or near the terminus of several major roads. The three main highways coming into Miami are I-95 that runs along the Atlantic Coast of the United States and terminates in Miami. I-75 comes in from the Midwestern United States and runs through Atlanta and Tampa before terminating in Miami. Also, Florida’s Turnpike is a toll road mainly useful for those driving in from Orlando. The only southbound route from Miami is US Highway 1, which runs through the Florida Keys all the way to Key West. A Miami Car Rental is advisable if you wish to drive yourself as it will give you lots of flexibility in regards to time, and it allows you to fit many more sights around about Miami during your stay.
