Each boasting their own distinct flavours, both neighbourhoods also share a number of similarities – starting with the challenge they pose when it comes to finding a parking space. Whether you’re based in either area or driving in from outside, finding somewhere to park in Coral Gables or Coconut Grove does require a little bit of planning. The good news is that while you’ll need to pay for the privilege, there are plenty of options for finding a safe and secure place to leave your car for anything from an hour through to days or weeks on end.

The options for parking in Coral Gables and Coconut Grove mainly come down to metred street parking or off-street lots and parking garages. There are a number of metered street spaces available, with prices ranging between $3 and $12 per hour. Alternatively, if you prefer the security of off-street covered parking, there are several lots and garages to pick from. Our number one choice is Paseo De La Riviera in Coral Gables, where you can pay $3 per hour for daytime parking or $35 for 24 hours. Alternatively, Garalde Place on Giralda Avenue, also in Coral Gables, charges $4 per hour or $20 for 24 hours for indoor parking.

You can book both of the above parking garages on Spothero.com, as well as at several other parking lots in Coral Gables and Coconut Grove.

Long-stay parking in Coral Gables & Coconut Grove

If you’re staying in Coral Gables or Coconut Grove and don’t have free parking at your choice of accommodation, you may want to think about finding a long-term parking spot to save you searching for street parking each day or paying hefty day rates at a garage. If you’re planning to spend a fair of bit of time in or around either area, paying for monthly parking can be a real money saver. So, for example, at the garage at 2903 McFarlane Road in Coconut Grove, day rates are $10, but monthly rates are just $169.50 – representing a saving of over $130 compared with paying for individual days for an entire month.
