I happened to book a convertible in South Florida for $36/day after linking directly from Delta's website to Thrifty for a pre-cruise over Labor Day Weekend. (Economy cars were $24) In the end, just find a rate/car class you are comfortable with, and don't worry about a drop-off charge, because there will not be one!

Enjoy your stay in beautiful South Florida!

Supershuttle will bring you right here and i don't know how pricey it is but (i know from Miami - $16.00 but that doesn't help you.)
Tri rail works, but it requires a lot of changes and would be a big hassle at the end of a trip. and often it skips an hour between leaving so could add hours onto trip.
I don't know about FL Limo, never seen or heard of that.

FLL is about 1 hour from Miami. Public transportation between Miami and FLL sucks. Tri-rail is a bad idea.
A cab will be well over $100. I'd really suggest flying into MIA as it is a lot simpler.
If the cost is prohibitive, I'd then suggest you look into renting a car. That is about 30$ to 40$ including the taxes...and most companies do no assess a surcharge to return it to the MIA airport (assuming you picked it up at FLL). You could therefore pickup a car in FLL, return it to MIA the same day and take a cab or shuttle bus from MIA to where you need to go in greater Miami.
If you want to keep your car for a couple days, I'd suggest you consider parking at one of the public garages. This is especially true for SOBE and not so true for NOBE. The public garages charge $1/hour or $8/day. Almost all the hotels will only valet ($25 - $35/night) and actually park your car in a public garage. This is very true for the garage on 17th and Pennsylvania in Miami Beach. Be sure to figure out where the closest garage is to your hotel before you chose this option. You don't want to do this if the closest garage is a mile away.

This may not be the cheapest but we used Brickell Key Tours & Transportation once when flying Southwest but sailing out of Miami. It doesn't necessarily have to be a limo. I believe they have vans/town car service too. They were very reliable and highly recommend them.
Easyexpress offered me transfers for two from FLL to Port of Miami for $40 one way or $60 RT. They discount for AAA and Spirit Air so your price may vary. Check their website.
Hope this helps someone. Now I hope they are reliable!

But no matter how you get there it seems like you are going to have a blast there.

I like to use SAS Transportaion for shared van service from FLL to the Port of Miami. They charge $15/person. Really good service. Good luck.
I agree with SAS transportation. We have used them 6 or 7 times and never had a problem. $15 per person, less for a larger group. I believe it was $11 per person for our part of 6.
