Day Pass for Miami Pools

Recently, while contemplating a long layover at Miami International Airport, we discovered that several hotels in South Beach offer pool day passes to non-guests. Rather than die of boredom sitting at a gate, we instead spent a leisurely afternoon poolside, gazing up at swaying palm trees, sipping on fancy cocktails and nibbling on tasty bites. I have since learned that these passes are not only popular with locals and frequent flyers, but also with the cruising crowd, trying to kill time before boarding their ship. Looking for a nice way to spend a day in Miami? Check out the list.

Miami Pool Day Pass 101

      1. Call the hotel to confirm that the offer is ongoing.
      2. If you have luggage, confirm that they will check it for you. Alternatively, storage is available at MIA (I always love writing that airport code).
      3. Be mindful of the fact that Miami has some serious traffic issues. Leave ample time to return to the airport for your flight. A cab from the airport to South Beach or vice versa will cost you around $35 and take about 30 minutes (without extreme traffic). Alternatively, you could use Uber or one of several shuttle services from the airport.
      4. If you have the time, there are other options that may gain you access to hotel amenities, such as a visit to the property spa. Discounts and specials for Miami hotel spas can often be found on Groupon. and Travelzoo.
