Miami, United States

On Miami Beach the sweltering sun beats down on half naked bodies, leaving behind glistening beads of moisture and a sun-kissed tan. The sand beneath your back forms itself into a comfy bed to relax on, a girl to the right slathers tanning oil over her shimmering tattoos, and an old man to the left burps from the beer he just finished. A contrast of beauty and gritty reality face Miami visitors as they arrive at the white sandy beaches under the powder blue sky - only a few feet from about ten tattoo shops.

Miami is a vacation spot for Americans from across the nation but it is also home to a huge Hispanic population, mostly from Cuban backgrounds, and Spanish is often more commonly heard than English. The diversity of the city creates cross cultural tensions, but also begets hip hop infused with salsa, traditional American cuisine laced with chilli pepper, and the strong flavours of Latin America in day to day life. Beach by day and Salsa clubs by night, embrace the cross cultural lifestyle and relax all the while.

Would this be a good destination to take my kids age 3 and 4 in November

The weather is really nice - lots of sun but not too hot. And there's lots to do, not sure what to recommend for little kids though - what do they enjoy?

Can anyone recommend a good quality motel/hotel mid range price

How hot and how many hours of sunshine in Jan

A good quality hotel/motel is approx how much per day
