We used to go to 8th Street for Mexican food. There is a pretty good Mexican food restaurant just outside of Downtown on 8th Street. You have to park on the street in this area and the parking is pay by meters. The meters don't always work. On all the occasions we have been at this location, we have seen... More

Definitely a once around, if you've never been. Area is very culturally rich with good food and of course, cigars. Spend a few hours and take it all in.

As a tourist you may go to Calle Ocho and not really know what the big deal is all about. I lived in Miami from 1963-1974 and this is the area where the Cuban refugees started establishing their business, homes, etc. It was just another street before the Cuban population "built" it. Now you find the oldest open air fruteria... More

A lot of tourists ask for where Calle Ocho is....even having had just driven along it. It resembles a poorly zoned street like you'd find in 3rd world countries... used car lot next to a cigar factory, limited sidewalks and poor lighting. Perhaps this is part of the attraction but this could be such a more vibrant district with some... More

Every tour operator will take you to this Cuban cigar factory in Miami.... They say its is the oldest one and you can see people making cigar by hands... This man is always available for pictures in same style. I also have the same picture as displayed..

If you like cigars, this is the place to go. Several cigar outlets in the area. Some actually roll them while you watch. Many options for purchase. There are Cuban food outlets here too as well as some decent souvenir stores and a McDonalds (with a clean bathroom). Watch the domino players, talk to the guy outside the cigar store,... More

We took a walk down calle Ocho. Very interesting to see all the Cuban shops and places to eat. We were only interested in passing through so enjoyed the murals and different sights. My favourite was the domino park seeing the elderly gents playing dominos. Worth a visit but probably only for an hour or so.

Calle Ocho Festival was one of the coolest things I have ever been to. It was amazing and fun and extremely large! It was so great to show my friends that were one vacation with me a bit of a my family culture in such a fun environment!
