I'll be traveling Europe-South America with a 12 hour layover in Miami. I'm trying to figure out how to make the best of it, but the logistics are tricky.
The inbound flight arrives around 5 am, the outbound flight leaves around 5 pm, and I'll probably have a suitcase and a carry-on.
Besides the luggage (which I could leave at the baggage storage at the airport), having a room to have a shower and maybe a nap would be great. Could find a hotel close to the airport and go sightseeing a bit, but 5 am is far too early for check-in, and 5 pm is too early to justify getting an hotel for the night. Given these 12 hours, I also won't be able to drop my suitcase for the next flight. Could book the previous night in a hotel as well, but feels like a waste of money.
