ABOUT THIS CONTENT:
Miami, described as “the only great city of the world that started as a fantasy” is heaven for tourists. Since the 1980’s, the city has grown tremendously and while changing its image, it is now considered as a center of international finance and commerce as well as an American home for Latin American. It has a ‘summer all year around’ climate and attracts many tourists as well as investors from all over the globe to purchase vacation homes. This enables the city to be extremely diverse - wherever you are from you will be able to connect with people from your very own country. This diversity also enables the city to constantly be on the move and MUST go for anyone. So, if you haven’t been to Miami, come visit as soon as possible! Even if 48 hours is not enough to see all that Miami has to offer, it is a good start to grab your attention and give you the perfect reason to come and experience more!
