I assume you're asking for several hours at a time, or overnight. Your best bet will be the large parking ramps at the corner of Collins and 13'th (enter from 13'th) or Collins and 7'th (enter from 7'th). Rates are $1/hour or $20/day, a bit higher if you enter the lots weekend evenings. Steet parking is hit or miss and probably more suited to short periods.

Your hotel may have parking, but the big structures may be cheaper. Street parking is very limited and the regulations are rigorously enforced. You don't really even need a car in South Beach. If you have just some days when you need it, you can rent one right in South Beach.

I should note that when "rk" refers to "ramps" he also means parking garages. That is good advice. There is metered parking on Ocean, but it is almost impossible to find, and if you do find any, it will cost you $1,.75/hour any time except between 3 and 8 AM. Wheatie gives good advice about having and not having cars in South Beach. There are 25 cent shuttles and $2 buses that will take you wherever you need to go.

This is a good opportunity to remind everyone that when a sign in Miami Beach says "Towaway Zone," they mean it! The towing companies use spotters, and you can leave your car for literally 2 or 3 minutes and come back to find it being hitched up or gone. Parking in an empty lot by a closed business where there is such a sign posted? Don't even think about it! Your car can also be towed if you park in a free lot owned by a store or restaurant and are then spotted going elsewhere, even if you have patronized that business first.
