MIA to South Beach - best method of transportation

Hi,

i will be visiting Miami on September, arriving to MIA Airport at about 12:00 PM.

my hotel is located on South Beach.

what is the most recomended method of transportation?

i prefer not to ride a bus, and to take a Shuttle / Uber / Lyft / Taxi.

btw - i am asking this since i have visited Orlando about 2 years ago, and i remember that the price of Uber was VERY expensive (since there was a limitation of uber in MCO - anything like this in MIA?)

Uber was limited to Uber Black, a restriction that’s long been lifted and was never in place here in Miami. Uber or Lyft would be my first choices.

For comparison, taxi will be $35+tip (fixed rate). Uber/Lyft about $25+tip (somewhat variable). Both are fine.

I know you said no bus, but there is an express bus from MIA that goes non-stop until it gets to the beach. Cost is about $2,35. . It takes about 15 minutes to get to 40th and collins from MIA, After that it goes south and makes stops along the way.
