Coconut Grove’s Marina is located just 8 miles far from Miami Int’l Airport, (20 min. by taxi/ around 25,00 USD one way). We suggest you to take a taxi or if you prefer you can rent a car which is cheaper but Parking in Miami is very expensive (Hotels normally charge 25,00 USD per night). Take care when you rent a car, because normally the insurance don’t cover all but only the car accident. We strongly suggest to take insurance for “Road Service” and for your personal accident if you don’t have your own travel insurance.
