If you love wildlife, this is the trip for you. This huge wild wetland has been recognised as one of the most unique ecosystems in the world. And it’s only an hour’s drive from Miami. For an adrenaline-filled adventure, make sure to book an airboat tour. You’ll skim across the wide-open swamps and pass through twisting mangrove tunnels as your guide tracks down the native residents. Keep your eyes peeled for alligators, manatees and racoons – they’re just some of the creatures you can get up close to.
