This was a latin ghetto mess. It took me an hour to find parking, an hour to walk to anywhere interesting, and a long the way I saw too many fights breakout between some wanna-be gang bangers. The food is mediocre. The music was awful. The worst part was I never felt safe. It's not everyday you see someone purposely... More

Most stores people are smoking. Souvenirs are meant for people with cuban heritage. There's an ice cream shop and kids thrift store that will occupy you for all of 5 minutes each. Good place to take a walk though.

Truly a street fair with all the senses on point, people, food, music and location. Get ready to be real close. Lots of people, little room to move.

Every time I'm in Miami I have to stop here. Its a fun vibrant area with lots of atmosphere. Walk along the street and grab a true Cuban coffee. Try some authentic Cuban food in one of the many restaurants and cafes or sometimes you can see the cigar makers rolling their cigars. Daytime is fun but its just as... More

I have been to Calle Ocho three times and each time I feel like I have traveled to Cuba and never left the US. The people are always so friendly and I the Cigar shop. I have bought cigars for friends there and they love them. The domino park is fun to see as well and you have to go... More

I found calle ocho to be nothing special. I guess the fun is at night. I went after spending the day at the beach. I saw some Cuban restaurants but I was expecting more.

It has lots of vendors, belly dancing, spanish singing shows in domino park, old heritage cars, street gallos, latin arts exhibits, and above all great cuban food n culture. If you are visiting Miami... More

I don't visit Calle Ocho regularly, but when I have out of town company, I find it's a great opportunity to take them to Calle Ocho. Although Calle Ocho and Little Havana are not inhabited by as many Cubans anymore; There are still a few places where you can get the nostalgia of how it was in the 60's and... More
