The 9 Most Unique Non-Stop Destinations from Miami & Fort LauderdaleJordan Hinsch

The ability to travel somewhere unique and not have to layover is an absolute blessing. Luckily, for those who live in South Florida, there are loads of unique destinations via a direct flight.


Before reading, be sure to note three important airport identifiers in this post:

  • MIA refers to Miami International Airport
  • FLL refers to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport

Here is my definition of "unique".

As it pertains to this article, "unique" means any of the following:

  • A brand new destination in which residents of South Florida have never had direct access to.
  • A route previously canceled by an airline for poor performance (not Covid-19 related reasons) which has now been resurrected.
  • An exotic destination which is only accessible directly from the USA via MIA or FLL.
  • A commonly shared yet exotic destination which feature the shortest year-round direct flights to and from MIA or FLL.

As always, I highly recommend you browse hotel selections on TripAdvisor. Hands-down the best way to choose your stay.

9 Most Unique Non-Stop Destinations from Miami & Fort Lauderdale

Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia (VVI) - 7 Hours

Why go?

  • Bolivia is awesome. I explored La Paz and Uyuni (along with the Potosi district) in-depth. I spent only one night in Santa Cruz, but it seemed like a lovely city. Fly to Santa Cruz, immerse yourself in culture, and then hop over to Uyuni (in March or April) for the most spectacular sites your eyes will ever see.

When to go?

  • Year-round. March or April for Salt Flat reflections in Uyuni, Bolivia.
