There are lots of things that you can do in Miami on a budget. On a side note, if youโ€™re travelling to the U.S. from abroad, you need to check the United Statesโ€™ current policy on international travel.

Travelling in Style

When you arrive in Miami, instead of taking a cab to your hotel or hostel (which we will address later), why not book a chauffeur? If youโ€™re going to save money in other areas of your trip, you might as well experience a little bit of luxury at the very beginning. An elite limousine chauffeuring service isnโ€™t as expensive as you might initially think. In fact, you can get one for less than $100. A chauffeur is a great way to start your trip, especially if youโ€™re travelling with your family.

Group Hostels

If youโ€™re travelling with friends and family, then you may want to consider getting a group hostel. If you have enough people, then you can book the entire hostel โ€“ which means that you wonโ€™t share with other people. A typical hostel room costs around $35 whereas a hotel can cost upwards of $150. Many hostels have amenities, like snooker halls, jacuzzis, kitchens, and gardens. You can find group-booking hostels on websites like Airbnb and Craigslist. Alternatively, you might want to visit Miami during the shoulder season, when hotel rooms are affordably priced.

All-Inclusive

If you want to travel luxuriously without breaking the bank, then you may want to consider an all-inclusive resort and spa. If you book one of these holiday resorts during the aforementioned shoulder season, you can save a lot of money. You will still have access to amenities like the swimming pool, spa, sauna, jacuzzis, tennis courts, and you wonโ€™t have to battle with crowds of people. Another benefit of all-inclusive resorts is that your food is covered, meaning that you donโ€™t have to worry about going out to restaurants, which can get very expensive.

Sunbathing

Thereโ€™s very little thatโ€™s as luxurious as sunbathing on Miami Beach. The beach is a mile wide, and 9 miles long. If you donโ€™t want to sunbathe on Miami Beach, then you could sunbathe in your hotel or at a public swimming pool. Sunbathing is a very relaxing, therapeutic experience, which is why it feels so luxurious, even though you donโ€™t have to pay to do it. Make sure that you wear sunscreen and protective equipment so that you donโ€™t damage your skin. You donโ€™t want to burn yourself and end up in hospital on vacation when youโ€™re meant to be relaxing.

Museums

Most museums are completely free to visit or cost very little, however because of the artifacts held and the overall aesthetic of most museums, they feel very luxurious. While visiting a museum and galleries arenโ€™t the first thing that you think of when your mind conjures up images of Miami, the city does have a lot to offer. If youโ€™re interested in history and art, then be sure to take a trip to one of the cityโ€™s many museums or galleries. Youโ€™ll find ancient history, prized artifacts and works of art, and award-winning modern works of art.

Music

One of Miamiโ€™s biggest industries is the music industry. The city hosts hundreds of music events each year, sometimes thousands. Thereโ€™s an event for everybody, at any time of the year. Whether you enjoy reggae, dancehall, jazz, electronic, or classical music, youโ€™ll find something. Most musical events are free to enter or cost very little. The major costs associated with these events are drinks and food, which if youโ€™re clever you can prepare for by bringing your own drinks or snacks into the venue. Do check if youโ€™re allowed to do that beforehand, however. You could be asked to leave if you sneak in beverages.

Tours

There are lots of things for you to see in Miami. If you want to enjoy yourself on a budget, then why not book a tour? When you book a tour, your transportation is covered. You will either travel by bus or on foot, instead of having to get taxis everywhere. Your guide will take you to see everything thatโ€™s worth seeing in the city.

If you want to travel to Miami and spend your holiday in luxury, you donโ€™t need to break the bank. Make sure to take all of this articleโ€™s tips into consideration if you do want to travel luxuriously in Floridaโ€™s most popular city.
