We stayed in Little Havana while we were in Miami for a few days, and loved the character of the neighborhood. We also spent our last morning walking down Calle Ocho from about 19th to 5th, and popped into a handful of shops and galleries along the way - I would definitely recommend checking out this area if you are...

We'd read about little Havana as one of the places to visit in Miami so decided to see what all the fuss was about. We decided to take the bus to downtown Miami and walk from there, and upon entering the little Havana area one of the first sights we were greeted with was a guy urinating on the pavement.... More

A large residential neighbourhood, home to many Cuban and South American immigrants. I expected more for tourists to see and do as it is a well known area and should potentialy be a diverse cultural hotbed of activity and socialising all year round. It only comes to life for a few blocks in and around Calle Ocho - SW 8th... More

This is must visit place if you want to see this very interesting part of Miami and Cuban immigrant culture. Cigar shop and souvenir shops were full of Cuban cultural elements which you can purchase for not so expensive prices.

Little Havana is even littler than I imagined. There is some great food to be found. Also great cigars and fine local art. Watching the older men playing some serious dominoes was worth the trip. More tourists than locals.

We had a good time exploring Little Havana , wasnt very big but the locals were friendly and the shops were cool. I loved the cigar shops and watching locals play dominoes at the park. Great stop while in Miami.

We didn't know what to expect but we really enjoyed Little Havana. We had lunch at Versailles then drove a little more into the heart of the district and strolled around. We bought great cigars at the Cuba Tobacco Cigar Co. and watched the old men playing dominoes in the park just down the block. It is a very cool... More

This restaurant around 15th has a really good service and the food is extremely good. My friends and I ordered a seafood plate, and only for 20 dollars, you are served a really big plate and 2 sides that you can choose. The mashed potatoes is amazing! The waitress and bartender were so nice with us. If you'll go to... More

We had an extra day in Miami, and thought we would spend part of it in Little Havana. I thought the area would be larger, and I was disappointed. It's a nice neighborhood, pretty clean with some nice shops. I guess I was expecting something more than a few blocks along 8th street, with some more murals and color than... More
