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 8 was the center of the Cuban exiles life after Castro took over. This is changing rapidly. Central Americans, Mexicans, and Dominicans are now living in the area, but it still has the Cuban feeling. Not everyone moved to places like Hialeah. There are a few good Cuban restaurants but they are the Fonda style. Good food but no... More

This is one of the most amazing places in Miami, where you can know about cuban culture, eat the delicious typical food and and have a nice walk, counting the fame parade on the floor: stars with names os spanish and latinoamerican celebrities. Specially beautiful the park where the old cubans are playing chess. Great! Don't miss the opportunity to... More

I visited CubaOcho the other day and I was pleasantly surprised with how much this area has changed. There are alot of places to sit down and eat or have a drink now and I look forward to taking my wife for a night out on Calle Ocho, as strange as that statment may have seemed just a few years...

There are a lot of stores, restaurants and shopping around. Full of cigars, you can taste the real Cuba style on the streets. I would recommend to talk with as many neighbors as you can, listen to their stories. I bought cigars at the Bello Cigars Store, wonderful.

Way below of my expectations. Not a place for a tourist. It's a local festival for local resident. Logistics and ambience not friendly for International visitors. Plenty of fried food but not a single place to seat and eat. Extremely crowded. I was expecting music from caribbean and Latin American Countries.
