Why is the water so blue in the Caribbean?
There is less iron in the Caribbean waters. Algae grows with
iron in the water. Also, the colder water creates more iron to
release into the ocean. With algae though produces more smaller
fish, which in turn attracts larger fish.

Is Miami considered part of the Caribbean?
No. Miami is on land, and the Caribbean is water. Miami is sometimes called the Gateway to the Caribbean, but the Greater Antilles (Cuba, Hispaniola, Puerto Rico) mark the Northern "border" of the Caribbean, and they are hundreds of miles from Miami--so it doesn't even overlook the Caribbean itself. So Miami is the closest part of the U.S. Mainland to the Caribbean (and thus the "Gateway").

On a map why is water colored blue?
When you look into an ocean or a lake, the water looks like it's blue. But, up close, water isn't really blue. It's only blue when you look at it in big groups, (like an ocean or a lake, a pond etc.), because the sky is blue, so the color of the sky makes a blue reflection on the water, making it look blue. So, on a map, if you drew water as clear, nobody would be able to tell there was anything there at all! So, water on a map is drawn blue instead.
