If you're going to step into Miami proper, it's worth having a look at Little Havana, but as the Columbian taxi driver told us, the's not much to see. It's a pleasant stroll and you can see some cigar stores, the guys playing dominoes, and the cuba memorials, but then it's time to move on.

On a long stopover at Miami airport, we decided to grab a taxi and go to Little Havana. We wandered through the streets and shops and ate a little Cuban food (pork and tostones) and had Cuban coffee on a corner stand. Great experience. Although the taxi driver tried to get us to go to South Beach instead (yes, really),... More

Only had a brief stop here as part of a city tour, but there seemed to be some character in Calle Ocho. Interesting cigar shops!

Calle Ocho is the Cuban heart and soul of Miami. Last Friday of the month is "Viernes Culturales", featuring gallery and shop openhouses, and a multi-block street party. Great scene!

Cultural Fridays on 8th street between 13 and 16 ave.when 8 street comes alive, is an experience in itself. The atmosphere was incredible, the art work and galleries beautiful, and the people were so carefree and happy that it was contagious. Music and dancing was also very entertaining. Had a great meal at El Esquisito restaurant also surprised by the... More

I love the Cuban coffee shops and art galleries here. It's a colorful neighborhood worth a 1-1.5 hour stroll. We had Cuban coffee at Los Pinarenos Fruteria, one of the oldest establishment there (41 years old). The strong syrupy cuban coffee is a must try. We also stopped by some art galleries and brought home some colorful souvenirs.

Food: Hit up Versailles Cuban Restaurant or walk across the street to La Carretta. There's a ton of Cuban restaurants in the area and around the Miami area but this place is consistent with quality and service. If recent news surrounds local or Cuban politics, don't be surprised if you see the local news stations gathering peoples opinions at the... More
