The Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) is approximately 140 miles away from your Cape Coral dream destination. This airport is much easier and you have much less traffic than flying into Miami International Airport which is next on the list. When you exit the airport, you find yourself directly onto I-595 which in general it not to enormously busy. After you pass the 27, you are straight on Alligator Alley. It is a beautiful stretch of road right through the everglades. Make sure you have a full tank of gas before you leave because there is only 1 gas station on that stretch of Interstate. You will also encounter toll each way so Sunpass or payment at the booth will be required.

This airport is located in the center of Miami which gives you an amazing view over the everglades when the airplane is in final descent for landing. Traffic is a bit more dense with some traffic jams but such is the nature of arriving in a metropole. We advise every guest to follow I-75 because this is leading through the outskirts of Miami and gets you away from heavy traffic. When you are on Alligator Alley, you will follow the same route as you would have landed in FLL. Please remember it is a toll way and there is only one gas station so filling up in Miami is advised.
