Miami Survival Guide

It’s a jungle out there and it’s been said that if you can make it in Miami, you can make it anywhere. Don’t be scared! We’re here to assist you with everything you’ll need to know to survive –and without a sunburn. Follow these simple survival guidelines and no one will even notice that you’re either a tourist or a local that doesn’t get out much! Just remember, fanny-packs are not cool and sandals should never be worn with socks. Bienvenidos a Miami!
