connecting flight via MIA: baggage Q


Might be travelling to Belize again via MIA from LHR at the end of the year. This time am considering going straight to BZE, which would involve a 16h layover in Miami (last time we spent a wk in south beach). I am trying to find my baggage options, last time we picked them up and had to drop them off again for the flight to LHR. Will I be able to do that again with a long layover between flights? Was thinking about going into south beach for a while and don't want to take bags with us. I know there is a baggage storage option, but am thinking of most time effective options.

Assuming you are on one ticket, your bags should be checked through. You pull them for customs then put them back on conveyor belt to go onto final destination.

Have fun.
