According to Florida law, an invitee is a visitor on the premises by invitation, either express or reasonably implied, of the owner:
An invitee is a visitor on the premises by invitation, either express or reasonably implied, of the owner. Wood v. Camp, 284 So.2d 691, 695 (Fla. 1973). An “invitation” means that “the visitor entering the premises has an objectively reasonable belief that he or she has been invited or is otherwise welcome on that portion of the real property where injury occurs.” § 768.075(3)(a) 1., Fla. Stat. (2011). However, erecting “No Trespassing” signs “is purely optional to a landowner,” so the absence of such signs does not mean that a landowner has impliedly invited the public on the land. Bishop v. First Nat’l Bank of Fla., Inc., 609 So.2d 722, 725 (Fla. 5th DCA 1992).
