Weather in Miami

Miami has year-round warm weather, with temperatures typically around 20°C-30°C (68°F-86°F).

Spring (March to May) is often considered as the best time to visit Miami as temperatures stay in the comfortable 22°C (72°F) to 26°C (79°F) range. Coincide your visit with Calle Ocho, a fun-filled Cuban-American festival with fantastic street parties and delicious street food.

Summer (June-August) is warm and gorgeous, although beaches can be crowded and you need to book your accommodation well in advance. Put on your best shades and join one of the many pool parties or Sunday night parties - Miamians know how to have fun and you'll never be bored.

Autumn (September-November) is rainy with a risk of tropical storms and hurricanes (technically the hurricane season starts from June to November). You can get cheap hotels in Miami in October and November.

Miami is a wallet-friendly destination to seek some sun during winter. Its winter (December to February) is mild with temperatures hovering around 20°C (68°F). This time is best for a cultural experience - the city kicks off the Art Deco Weekend in January and the South Beach Wine & Food Festival starts in February.

A bright and cheerful hostel that's a short walk from the Bass Museum, the Freehand Miami is a good choice for those on a budget and who don't mind sharing their sleeping quarters.
