Miami is the fifth album by Argentine rock group Babasónicos. This is the last album in which member DJ Peggyn participated; he left the band in 2000 for a solo career, renaming himself Jimmy Dolor.

The album cover was designed by Alejandro Ros. It is a map of Argentina turned 90 degrees clockwise, resembling a map of the east coast of the United States; the map places a fictional Miami in the Argentinian province of Misiones. Ros later designed the covers for Jessico and Infame.

After the release of the album, Cosme, their manager, left the band.
