When is the Best Time to Go?
The answer to this question will depend on your particular preferences. If you prefer
fewer crowds and don’t mind the heat and humidity, then June through September is
a good time to visit South Florida. During this period hotel rates tend to be lower
and there will be less crowded conditions at popular attractions and theme parks.
However, be aware that this is also hurricane season, so make sure you know your
airline and hotel’s cancellation/refund policy before booking. Also check with the
National Weather Service if you are booking last minute as it does a good job of
tracking storms and providing ample warning.
If the heat bothers
you then choose the winter months (December – March) when temperatures are mild
(sometimes even cool) and there is minimal precipitation. On the flip side, this
is the most popular time for tourists to visit Miami so expect more crowded conditions
and higher hotel rates.
Many people consider the transitional months (April/May and October/ November) to
be the ideal time to visit Miami as temperatures are relatively mild and hotel deals
To avoid crowds and high hotel rates, try to stay away from especially popular holiday
periods such as: Presidents’ Day weekend (February), Easter week, Memorial Day weekend
(end of May), the Fourth of July, Labor Day weekend (September), Thanksgiving (November),
Christmas and New Year’s.
Another tip to take advantage of is to book your trip during the week instead of
on the weekend. Most hotels offer significant discounts for weekday bookings regardless
of the season. Most importantly, you need to keep in mind that you are traveling
for medical reasons; therefore your primary concern should be to travel at a time
and under circumstances that will cause you the least amount of discomfort and stress.
