Near Brickell, where we were staying, is this Little Havana area. Lots of restaurants, cigar shops, Cuban music blasting and little park, where older men were playing domínoes etc. Definitely worth of visit while you are in Miami.

Calle Ocho is worth a visit if you're in Miami. It's not a disney-type attraction, but a gritty series of cigar shops and galleries, hi-lited by the guys playing dominos. It's the contrast to Coconut Grove.

Great place to embrace the Cuban culture. Inexpensive Cuban food and drinks. Don't pass out on trip down memory lane.

I've read good and bad to this place but mainly this is a strip of Cuban culture extravaganza. I personally enjoyed going to Cuban restaurant. I love the food....

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
