If it hasn’t already started happening, pretty soon the nagging about buying your plane tickets back home to Miami will be cada hora, at the top of the hour. If you’re like me and you love your thriving, absurd, no-place-like-home Puerto Rican and Cuban family in Miami but you also just learned about self-care, there is a middle ground. Tell your Mami you’re coming home so she can stop lighting all the candles in the house and book an Airbnb. Check out these places to hide away while visiting family if you need a moment to breathe.
