New Single "Heart Attack" Available Now!
I am planning a trip to Miami, always wanted to go there. I have no clue where to stay and what to do, aside from South Beach. I would love some ideas of restaurants, nice places to stay, what to do.
Maybe I can stop in and have a drink with Enrique while there! LOL
Lucky you, there's so much to do in beautiful Miami! I recommend taking an airboat ride in the Everglades, I've been to Evergladesholidaypark.com which is nice, there are a few to pick from, but I know this one and another one off Tamiami Trail. The first one has a quick alligator show after the ride and you can hold a little alligaotor, I did, it was soooo cold but felt soo cool!!!
I adore Cuban food and love La Carreta (it's inside the MIA airport too) There's one in Doral which would be right next to Miami International Mall and the Dolphin Mall or Miramar. Gloria Estefan has Bongos restaurants in different places too.
If you love sweets I met a great lady at Enrique's concert at the Hard Rock and she owns LA Sweets and makes beautiful little bite sized cupcakes and Enrique's favorite is the Red Velvet (we should call it the "Hero") and Pitbull loves the guava ones, she has a place in Sunset Place in sort of S Miami and Brickell, downtown area.
There's so much, depends on your interests too. If you're on S Beach, walk down Espanola Way, just remember it being so pretty! Hope this helps, you'll have a wonderful time! Yeah, wouldn't it be great to spot Enrique?!
Thanks so much, that is a great start for some ideas! Appreciate it. Where is a good spot to stay?
I have saw that online. I will look into it, not sure if I should move around or stay at one hotel. I am just hoping that I can plan around a performance by Enrique but not sure if there are any in Miami this upcoming spring/summer. If anyone knows let me know!
meet with inezzz!
Yes, Ines is Enrique's "Official Wife from Miami" after all! The Fontainebleu is beautiful, but yes, I bet expensive. There are NO Miami Enrique events I'm aware of, he has a Houston Rodeo and a Cancun event in March, don't know of anything else planned, nothing is out there! We seem to all be dying wanting him to hit the road again but he has hard a rough past couple years and is resting!
I think he is resting too, but maybe I will get lucky and he will do something in his hometown at least since I am planning to go. I wonder where he is building his new home? I think his current home is on Sunset island somewhere. Ines- hello! Where are you? If you are from Miami, your the girl I need to talk to!!!
Thanks again Ladies
hey! im here!! so sorry I didnt answer!! buuuuuuuuuuuuuu!! i didnt notice!! I been kinda away from the forum! but im here! yay!!...well...Somebody asked the same question and I replied so take a look at this topic...Hope it helps...When r u coming to miami?? it would be nice to meet more& more fans....here u go!
Hey there Ines!!! Nice to hear from you, thanks for the response. Was that topic just on the forum this January? Wondering how I missed it? I read what you wrote, thanks so much. Where is the best place to stay right at South Beach? Is it better to rent a place on my own or book a hotel? Not sure yet when we are going but possibly in June. What island is his new home being built on? I am married to a homebuilder and we are currently building a big home- nothing like EI but for our area it is very large LOL! We are interested in new home build and especially on such large scales.
What are the hot spots I might run into EI? Do you think he will perform in Miami anytime in the near future? It would be great to meet up with you Ines!!!
Have you been to Casa Tua? Is that a good place to eat? I see EI met JLO there recently.
I love this forum for this reason, meeting people like you and helping each other with travel info.
Hope to chat soon!
Best advice I can give you is: Don't Sleep. do everything else! (: I guarantee no matter what you do, you will love it!!!
Thank you Lynz. What area is the best place to stay that will be close to everything?
I'd suggest staying in South Beach. The rates for some of the hotels even on Ocean Drive are pretty good- in my opinion anyway & the beach is general right across the road or a block away. Last year when we stayed there we stayed at the Deauville Resort- stunning!!!! & right on the beach but the only con was that it was located in North Miami Beach so we had to cab it to Ocean Drive, Lincoln Road, South Beach etc. This year we will be staying in South Beach for sure. If you have any other questions feel free to PM me on here (: I LOVE MIAMI like no other place (as most people pn the forum already know lol) so yeah... ask away!!!
Also I recommend talking to Ines on here as well as she is lucky enough to live there!!
