We had planned to go to Little Havana, but once we got within a block, we decided to just drive through, it seemed pretty run down and wasn't in the greatest part of town. However we did stop on the Cuban Memorial Boulevard as there was a very unique looking tree.

I was told while in Miami, you just HAVE to go to Little Havana...i thought, ok, free is good enough for me, then realize..its not much more then a street dedicated to Cubans. NOT taking anything away from their culture at all, but...it just a street with a few cigar shops, art decco, restaurants with authentic Cuban food, but really?... More

We enjoy getting out and about and outside the norm. Little Havana is outside the norm of our lives. We loved the colorfulness of their little world. The artistic talents that they show off in their paintings / graffiti on outside of buildings is mind blowing.

We speak Spanish, but you don't have to. My husband is fluent, me can get by. We love going through Little Havana, and especially VERSAILLES and the Bakery. Best Guava pastries ever, and such nice people. Cuban coffee flows....................... YUM

Easy to get to using Metro system for $5 for the day. Get off at Brickel station and take 8th street bus from the station. Walk 8th street and enjoy. Pick a Cuban spot to eat.

Will probably not get to see Miami again and got to spend one day there only. This part of town was really a special experience. The quint restaurants and older residents doing their thing on the sidewalk looks like a real Cuban scene. Feels like a different country compared to the celebrity part of the city. Worth preserving the culture... More

I like finding off the beaten path and I have thanks to tripadvisor. The cigar shops where they are hand rolling... More

Little Havana is comprised of a few avenues running down Miami's Calle Ocho (8 street). At first glance, it may not appear as much but if you really look, it is an opportunity to step back in time and observe what is left of Miami's dominant Cuban culture. Cubans are still the majority business owners but the residents of the... More

It was nice to visit Little Havana and learn the history. We had lunch here and a cuban coffee. We also saw the men playing Dominos like they do every afternoon and saw the man who sits outside of the cigar shop that is in his 80's and smokes 15 cigars a day for the past 20 years! No it... More
