I'm flying to KMIA next Saturday, and I'll be off Sunday morning.
Could anybody provide some hints on how to move around the airport?
I won't have a car so public transportation or a cab is my only choice.
Thanks in advance

i couldn't do it without a car, impossible especially if you want to get to El Dorado or "The Holes." i rented one from alamo which did the job...i don't know about taxi, but i can tell you this much, the traffic in Miami is terrible and you could spend a fortune to get from airport to holes and back.
i'd say taxi is your best option...

A taxi is your best bet. The spots around MIA have no facilities whatsoever. If you take a cab to the holes there are no phones to call a taxi to take you to wherever you need to go. The spot on RWY 9, El Dorado Furniture is the closest ride from the terminal, but departing traffic is few and far between. I may be able to help you out on Saturday getting around until the late afternoon. If you need any more info, message me.

I was in your position last November with a full day layover in Miami. If you don't want to leave the central terminal complex, then head to the roof of the Dolphin parking lot; you can get photos like these (westerly wind):
