Take a walk around Miami’s Art Deco District then flop down under a shady palm tree on glitzy Miami Beach and sunbathe with the beautiful people. When not beach-lounging, try a spot of retail therapy in Miami’s array of designer shops and boutiques, then relax and refresh on one of the many top-notch restaurants, perhaps trying the sizzling Cuban flavours in Little Havana. Further afield, explore the watery wetlands of the Everglades National Park aboard a boat tour – just beware of the alligators!

Round off your trip in the village of Islamorada, the village of islands, so-called because it’s made up of six separate islands. The clear blue waters of Islamorada are fantastic for fishing, scuba diving and a variety of exciting watersports. Bucket list-tickers can scratch off swimming with dolphins here too, as the area is home to the highly-intelligent Atlantic bottlenose dolphin.
