Hola Banditos! 
Any tire recommendations for hot S.W. Florida riding?  Also I have a new front continental tire, I need a new rear tire. 

Is it essential I get a new matching rear tire to match?

It gets hot in Oklahoma and I run Michelin PR4's. The rear tire now has almost 16k miles. I've never mixed brands but I don't see that it would matter to us average riders.

Awesome thanks.  16000 miles is great considering I'm hearing that they last anywhere from 1800 to 15k miles.  Bike shop agrees with you too.  They said they have ppl mix & match tires also.
