The multicultural, cross-genre band gives you their recommendations for what’s not to be missed in Miami.
“Miami is the city of the future, because it has everything,” Xperimento will have you know. But even in a city that’s packed to the hilt with diversity and exciting things to see and do, the band still has its favorites.
Where to start your day
“Start your day kayaking or paddle boarding around the Mangroves of Key Biscayne,” they insist. “It’s very peaceful.” Key Biscayne sits between two large Florida parks, Crandon Park and Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, which harbor loads of birdlife and butterflies. In other words, it’s paradise.
Where to get breakfast or lunch
After the Mangroves, follow up with breakfast at Sergio’s, a 50+ year institution serving Cuban coffee and empanadas. Or, save up for lunch at Kush, located in the Wynwood neighborhood, which offers Latin-inspired burgers with guava, and fried Florida alligator bites.
Enviable places for Instagram
A must-see spot that’s ultra Instagram-worthy is Wynwood Walls, where murals of local Miami artists and those from across the globe are everywhere. “There isn’t a single wall that isn’t covered in art,” the band says of the Edgewater outdoor museum.

Where to get cultured
Visit the PAMM Museum (Pérez Art Museum Miami) for versatile modern and contemporary art, and the historic place of Vizcaya, the former home of Al Capone in the heart of Miami with stunningly lush gardens.
Where to hear and taste the best of Miami
Make time to hear some of Miami’s best Latin local bands at the iconic Hoy Como Ayer on West 8th Street, before late night eats at Los Perros for fast and delicious Colombian and Venezuelan fare.
