Florida Departures Ft. Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Miami & Port Canaveral & Tampa
There is a hotel inside the MIA airport - cleverly called the Miami Airport Hotel - that has day rates, but no pool.
Your best bet may be to rent a car for the day, put your luggage in the trunk, and then go where you want - South Beach, Hollywood Boardwalk, lunch, shopping, beach, whatever. National, Alamo and Thrifty share a free shuttle from POM to their MIA airport location.
Your other option is to cab to MIA, pay to store your luggage there (you cannot check bags until 4 hours prior to your flight), and then catch the airport flyer bus to South Beach for only $2.35 each way.
