The Problem Is...Where Should You Actually Go??

Take it from a local - don't go here. Aside from being dangerous there is nothing to see here. Just a few rough neighborhoods.

My husband is Haitian, so this was a point of interest for us; however, what is it exactly? You cannot find even on their website what exactly constitutes the area you'd want to explore. That being said, we drove around and it was pretty economically low with a few scattered Haitian stores and restaurants. When you go to Little Havana... More

I'm going to frame this review by saying that I've back packed from Hungry to Romania as a solo female traveller and felt safer than I do staying in Little Haiti. I was in New Orleans for the Bayou Classic and walked around Bourbon Street and the French-quarter not long before there were shootings - and I STILL felt safer... More

Not a good choice for those without a very strong sense of adventure. While it is probably fairly benign compared to many spots in the world including I have to suspect a lot of places actually in Haiti, this area is not especially safe for tourists. I would certainly avoid it at night and if I had a desire for... More

Please do not go here especially if you are girls it is extremely unsafe. Yes it is like Haiti to an extent but all of the male staff and male taxi drivers have warned to stay away from here it is dangerous even in the day time. The strange thing is little Haiti is promoted in the same way as... More

Smelly and awful. Not worth the time or effort. The people are rude and the area is sketchy. I am shocked this is listed as a place to see in Miami.

This is not an area many people frequent but with the development of the design district, it's proximity is going to make it a very vibrant area in the future. There are a few good Haitian restaurants here and a very good Caribbean restaurant on 79 B&B.

I have seen some of the negative reviews regarding this area. However, this area is rich in Haitian culture and pride. And the food is authentic and the Haitian cultural center is a must see. Please do not allow the negative reviews rob you of a great experience. Now, this area is not marked with expensive mansions and high end... More

This should not be a tourist attraction, it is not a safe area and should be avoided. I'm not sure if people reviewing are mixing it up with Little Havana but this is not someone should go without a purpose.
