That's about it. 8th Street runs from downtown Miami all the way west until you get to Naples. It goes through a lot of neighborhoods. I would not consider 8th Street a destination.

Calle Ocho is an interesting street in Little Havana. The whole time we were here I was looking for Pitbull. JK. We went here on a whim and loved it. It is a different scene than the touristy beaches in Miami. There were people dancing, singing, chilling. You can find cigar stores and there is even a cigar tour you... More

I witnessed more young overweight women wearing the smallest and tightest shorts leaving nothing to the imagination. The food was good, but it was pretty much the same at every vendor. The crowds are crazy and the music is loud and raucous. Worth the visit just to watch the freak show.

Not a fan of Calle Ocho. Went once and will never go back. Im Hispanic and understand the meaning behind it but the crowd is what makes me not want to go back. The people aren't pleasant and please go with an empty bladder.

Make sure to follow the sugested itinerary in the tripadvisor app! It was full of colors, sabor and culture! It is not enough to see the outside of the shops, go inside.

I was born in Callao, Peru. I must say calle ocho is very similar to it. I walked in the dominoes park, there was a lot of people playing. It's a very hispanic place. There was a lot of salsa on the streets. I found this man playing a "bongo" and another man dancing. I had bought a pair of... More

Everytime we visit Miami we visit Calle Ocho. A cigar and a cafe leche makes the visit perfect. Pick a spot any spot and don't forget to pick up some Cuban bread and some pastelito. Check out the domino club and see how the pros play.

While the Calle Ocho street festival (carnival) is a mob, about 1 million people, stages with music from the Caribbean and Latin America and people flaunting their country of origin. The rest of the time Calle Ocho (8th st.) is a Little Havana neighborhood and largely Cuban culture. Art galleries, restaurants and nightclubs playing Salsa, Son, Merengue & Reggaeton. Viernes...
