a diversity of wildlife and many endangered species, it is a unique and special place, and certainly one of the most amazing National Parks we have. And February is the perfect time to visit as this is the dry season when wildlife sightings are prolific.
There are three entrances to the Park and four main areas. Where to go and what to do? You'll want to be on the lookout for alligators, manatees, fantastic birds... and the many ways to see the park: by boat, by foot, by bike, canoe, kayak, trams...
Each area is unique and special, check out our guides:
A Biscayne Bay Cruise is an excellent way to enjoy some of the most spectacular views Miami has to offer.
Since the city is blessed with fabulous weather year-round, enjoying the sights from the water on a tropical
sunny day is always a pleasant way specially for first-timers to discover our beautiful coastline and experience the pulse of the city.
