Useful Info for Visiting Miami

Miami is 5 hours behind the UK and their local currency is the US Dollar. Although it’s located in North America and the official language is English, Spanish is also a prominent language and is spoken by over half of the population. This is due to the heavy Latino influences and a large population of Latin Americans in the city. In some parts of Miami, Spanish is the predominant language and English isn’t really spoken. For most of the city you will find that people do speak English or Spanglish, but to help you whilst you’re there it’s best to touch up your Spanish speaking skills. ‘Hello’ is hola, ‘goodbye’ is adios, ‘please’ is por favour and ‘thank you’ is gracias.
