Getting to Marathon is a breeze from South Florida. You can fly into either Miami or connect directly into Key West but the gorgeous drive is half the enjoyable-fun so we flew into Miami. The drive from Miami Airport to Marathon is scenic and takes about two hours. Once you cross into Key Largo Sound you can leave the stress behind and focus on the beauty all around. Be sure to stop and get cuban coffee at the Blue Marlin Restaurant in Key Largo. You'll drive through past beaches and enjoy sweeping views of the water sports enthusiasts like kite surfers. We like to stay on the waterfront. Pick a hotel that has cozy spots to chill after watersports fun.
