Errors in geography 

The topography of Colombia's northernmost peninsula known as Guajira is basically an arid desert, quite different from the jungle backdrop used to describe the smuggler's airplane. This backdrop would most likely fit the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta, where the "Santa Marta Gold" marijuana is produced.

Audio/visual unsynchronised

Character error 

When Isabella and Jesus discuss what to do with Crockett and Tubbs, they speak in English. Yet, both Spanish speakers, it is unclear why they do not converse in their common native tongue. (However, it is possible they filmed it in English to make it easier on the audience instead of having to read subtitles.)

In the final shootout, Gina gives Zito the green light to move to take cover behind some large wheels. But he walks to safety passing the front of the car where the firepower is, instead of round the back.

Crocket wrestles a guy to the ground right before they storm the trailer and his body armor goes from having the shoulder straps ripped off when he stands up, to being fully fastened as soon as the camera changes to him peering around the tree (next camera angle).

In the opening nightclub scene, the first shot of Crockett (over his shoulder) reveals him to be clearly wearing a white shirt under his suit- the collar is plainly visible. Cut to the next shot, from the front, and he is wearing a black t shirt instead.

Errors in geography 

When Crockett and Isabella go to Cuba to have mojitos, it is supposedly to La Bodeguita del Medio. The Bodeguita is in a closed-in neighborhood in Havana Vieja on a small street, about 6 blocks from the nearest docks, and with no ocean or highway view. Yet in the bar scene one can clearly make out the ocean and highways. Moreover, the Bodeguita is a tiny place with no outdoor seating, no disco-style dancing, and is mostly a sit-down restaurant with a small bar attached. It is not a "night-life" place.

In the opening club scene when Crockett and Tubbs go the roof of Mansion, they are clearly on the roof of a building that is downtown Miami (Bank of American building in background, etc). Mansion is located on Washington Ave on Miami Beach, not downtown Miami.

Factual errors

The black Dodge Charger has a SRT badge on the front grill meaning it has a 6.1L V8 engine. On the side quarter panels it say 3.5, which means the car would have a V6. Also the head restraints in the SRT model are stitched and read "SRT 8". This "SRT" doesn't have this on the seats, nor does it have SRT spoiler on the trunk.

Aircraft that identifies itself as N1206S is a Beechcraft King Air B200. In reality the "N number" N1206S is registered to an Ayres Corporation S2R-600, a single, radial engine aircraft.

The aircraft which they are using to transport drugs out of Columbia is an Adam A500. They have been instructed to transport and deliver 1,000 Kg of drugs. However, the Adam A500 has an empty weight of 2,427 kg, and a gross weight of 3,175 kg (gross weight is fully loaded, including passengers / pilot and fuel). So the aircraft they are using is only capable of transporting a weight of 748 Kg, including fuel, passengers, and cargo. It would be impossible for them to transport themselves and 1,000 Kg of drugs on one plane in one load, although it is a pretty cool looking aircraft.

Revealing mistakes 

When the Miami PD's speed boats are heading for the final showdown, Crocket's speed boat's running lights are backwards. The left (port) light should be red and the right (starboard) light should be green.
