South beach is very run down and very expensive. They automatically charge you a 20% gratuity on everything. Lots of buildings are closed up.

The overall feeling of the beach and the area is remarkable, I could spend half a day here, but you need to pay attention what and where you eat/drink, because it can easily get really expensive :)

South Beach was fun, there was a lot to do and everything was within walking distance from SLS Hotel. The locals were super friendly and nice. The restaurants and drinks are overpriced, keep in mind everywhere you go the gratuity is included.

I don’t know the park and it might be a better place a very large group. There’s a gay section at the rah if you go to South Beach.
