Taxi cost from Fort Lauderdale Airport to South Beach?

We are trying to plan whether to fly into Miami or Fort Laudertdale-- Fort Lauderale is cheaper, but I suspect the cab fare is greater-- does anyone know what is the difference in taxi fares? Another option would be renting a car, but since we are in town only for a weekend wedding, it would just sit at the hotel. Do most South Beach hotels charge for parking? Thanks for the help!

Last time I took a cab from Ftlauderdale to SouthBeach it was $25 or so.Parking is expensive $20 up per 24 hour period.So if you pay $25 a day for a car,then parking might as well cab it.

BeachBoi is exactly right. For such a short trip, forget about renting a car. The cab fare he posits sounds about right (maybe a bit low, but it's really not a far trip)-- and there are door-to-door shuttle services that might be a bit cheaper. With hotels charging $18 and up for valet per day, it's just not worth it.

You could check to see if your hotel has a shuttle to the airport.
