Hi there,

My name is Pablo, I live in Argentina, and i'm going to Miami by the end of May in a business trip.
I was wondering how i should dress to avoid looking too "out of place"...

What can I wear? I believe the best way to describe the environment i would be immersed in is "business casual"....

In our office we're not allowed to wear Jeans, sport-shoes and regular T-shirts. Only Managers have to wear a tie though. On Friday it's "Casual Friday" and Jeans are ok.

So just wear some regular pants, a buttoned shirt and some nice shoes I'd say. Enjoy your stay and make sure to check out a Happy-Hour-Party. Monty's on Miami Beach is always fun on a Friday night

Just common business sense--no sandals, t-shirts, jeans, etc. Some dress pants and a collared shirt (with or without tie) should be fine.

Yes and I have seen "business casual" go too far. One of our customers had casual Fridays and the outfits they wore looked like gym attire. Please skip the shorts and muscle shirts people, I don't want to see those fat guts and hairy armpits.

You are getting good advice for your free time. However, this can still be a rather formal city business-wise, especially in the financial and legal sectors. If you are the client, wear anything you want. However, if you are trying to make a deal, sell your product, be a consultant, or represent your company, I would recommend wearing a suit that conveys sophistication.
Your visual image makes your first impression.
