At Port Lauderdale you have 3 or 4 choices to park. You can park at the airport and take a long time to get back and forth, you can park at the port for $15 a day and haul your own bags, or you can do what we found to be the best of parking worlds there.
Right outside the gates to the port is what seems to be a small lot not big enough to be worth anything. Looks are decieving. Alexander Tosta at email@example.com is a great deal. You can start parking at 9:30 and their first shuttle leaves for the 3 minute trip to the terminal leaves at 10:15. They have a special deal with Carnival for early entry. They have a lot of shuttles and when you check in you are given a numbered ticket and you board the shuttles by that number. No mad dashes. They will take reservations but Alexander will not take pre-paid for security reasons. When you get back the shuttles are about 50 yards away from the terminal and we were on our way home from the parking lot by 8:40. A new record.
This is truly a great parking option for just $8 a day.
