    When we went to Florida in 1997 we flew into Miami, stayed there for a few nights, drove across alligator alley and up to near Venice beach to a villa then over to orlando. It was a great trip

    Oh, thanks Tom! I just saw this post too.

    Cubano is such good food, eh? And yes, Little Havana... where the old men sit and play dominos and the air is alive with excitement.

    My family went there when we went to florida in 2008, they booked it through virgin at the welcome meeting. They really enjoyed the day, they went to the everglades and did the air boat and then went to see all the houses of the rich and famous. Really good day out - only thing they didnt like was the breakfast they give you (so take some food if you are going through virgin!) and the fact that it was such a long journey there and back so they didnt get back to the hotel until very late at night

    Wow! That's one whirlwind of a trip! South Beach, that's quite a place isn't it? Good that you were able to get down there!
