It is very different.... Miami is a city put together with many different neighborhoods. I was interested in how Little Haiti looks like, so we went for a drive. I have to admit it was interesting to see as it is so different to anything else (or from hat you expect Miami to be), but we weren't comfortable stopping there...... More

Who in their right mind, especially anyone who knows Miami would want to visit Little Haiti???? Certainly not for "arts and crafts". Make sure you have Trip Interruption Insurance and good health coverage. The only thing good about the place is that you are not far from Jackson Hospital Ryder Trauma Center (just in case you need to be taken... More

We were keen to do something different than the stereotype tourists, and drove to little Haiti to have lunch and look around. Little Haiti may not have many big things to see, buy or do, but we were surprised of how delicious our Haitian lunch tasted and how happy and friendly the Haitian people were to us. I highly recommend... More

Really, there's nothing for a visitor to see here. Drove around trying hard to find the attraction here but couldn't. Thankfully, we ended up at the Coconut Grove Art Festival which was awesome.

Folks, this is the worst neighborhood in Miami, most of the violent and gang crime that happen in Miami happen here. I don't even suggest you drive through this area! A couple of reviews here say "Crimes are and can happen anywhere" and... More

As a 64 year old, born in Miami. Stay Away even on the adjacent roads including Biscayne Blvd. Don't stop even for coffee. Keep items in your trunk out of sight. I speak from experience and as a victim. Yes crime happens everywhere but more often here.

This place should not be listed as a tourist destination. It's a neighborhood. Some good people and some very bad. Not a safe place to visit.

When I search about where to go in Miami, I found that Little Haití was very recommended. My first impression was that it is very dangerous, people don´t look nice, also, I don´t found anything interesting. It was a waste of time
