Key Largo had been a nice surprise, kind of wish we had spent more time there but we had already planned to make our way north.
But before we make our way to the Everglades and the Gulf coast - today will be a day full o' family. We first stopped off in Miami for another visit with my Uncle. This time he drove us to lunch in his mini van …
... beds on the opposite side of the hostel room. There were 12 bunks total and we claimed the remaining two. No one was in the room when we arrived so we locked up the expensive stuff in the lockers and grabbed some grub and beers at the local taco shop.

We ended up on the beach for a few hours with some ...
Tomorrow we plan to visit the Miami beaches before heading for the airport in the evening for our flight to Montevideo. It's an overnight flight and we arrive early morning on Saturday. Thankfully, we are met at the airport which will save a lot of heartache! Our visit to Miami has been brief but we have enjoyed our short stay here, especially our visit to Key West. Thank you, Liz, for such a lovely evening!

Great location - close to the Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International - free shuttle pick up and drop off to / from the airport. Close to strip malls and lots of eating options. Close to public transport, eg the Sun Trolley HOHO for $2-3 all day pass. Close to the cruise terminal for paid shuttle or taxi service. Re the hotel itself - large king size room, very clean, complimentary hot breakfast. Great customer service from the front desk
