For those of you obsessed with tan-lines or just prefer life with no clothes on, there is Haulover Beach, the North Side is Miami���s only ���clothing-optional��� beach, (although what goes for clothing on South Beach wont make tan lines a massive issue for most of us). FOOD Miami is a cultural melting pot and it is bubbling over with delicious dishes from all over the world. With the largest Hispanic population in any city in the U.S.A, you have to try the Latin American delicacies in one of downtown Miami���s many Cuban bars and restaurants.

Mangos Tropical Caf�� is well worth a visit, scantily clad waiting staff in Leopard print cat suits will serve you some lethal Cuban concoctions in between dancing on top of the bar to the pumping sounds of salsa, meringue and reggaton. Its easy to see why it���s a favourite spot of locals and tourists, go on the weekend to really see things take off at Mangos.
