MIAMI CARNIVAL 2019
Oct 15 all-day
MIAMI CARNIVAL 2019

WHEN DO MOST PARTICIPANTS ARRIVE?

Many of the activities take place from October 11-15, 2019. Most people arrive on Friday and leave that Monday morning.

However, we suggest that you arrive on Thursday and leave Monday if possible. That way you can avoid some of the long crowds at the Miami airport and you can also check out more parties and events throughout the weekend.

WHAT HOTELS SHOULD I STAY IN FOR THE WEEKEND?

If you want to stay close to the venue, Miami will be the hot spot. Everything is within walking distance or a short cab ride from the venue. Of course, many people also enjoy the atmosphere in the South Beach area.

If you decide to south beach, you can easily drive to the downtown area if you have access to a vehicle.(10-15 minute) You can choose to rent a car to travel throughout the city. IS IT BETTER TO DRIVE OR FLY? That is up to you. If you decide to fly, most people choose Miami to as their final destination.

However, Ft Lauderdale is usually cheaper and is only 20-30 minutes away from Miami RESERVE A SPECIAL PRICED DISCOUNTED HOTEL ROOM WITH BLACK BEACH WEEK IN 60 SECONDS OR LESS FOR MIAMI CARNIVAL WEEKEND
