Miami is situated on the Atlantic coast in southeastern Florida. The city the 42nd largest in the United States, and is home to over 2 million people. It was ranked by Forbes Magazine as Americas Cleanest City back in 2008 for its good air quality, clean streets, clean drinking water, boundless green spaces, and for promoting city-wide recycling programs. Miami has quite a large Latin American population within its bounds. It also has a rather eclectic mix of races due to its diverse immigrant population which have resulted in majority of its inhabitants speaking Spanish, while its other residents speak English, Haitian Creole, as well as French. It is not entirely uncommon to encounter a local who doesnt speak English, and dont be surprised when you see signs and public announcements written out in English, Spanish and Creole.
