The players don't mind the tourists, honest!

I've seen reviews on here saying that we shouldn't stop off and "gawk" at the players in Domino Park. The players here all belong to a private club and they post notices welcoming... read more

I loved spending time at this park, watching people play Cuban dominoes and talking with the locals. People are very friendly and welcome tourists who want to watch and take photos. A few people speak English and they explained the rules and the dynamics between players. This was my favorite part of Little Havana.

I've seen reviews on here saying that we shouldn't stop off and "gawk" at the players in Domino Park. The players here all belong to a private club and they post notices welcoming tourists, if they didn't want us here they wouldn't do that. Even with the most basic Spanish it's still easy to congratulate a good player and share... More

If your looking for some insight into how REAL Miamians live, take a visit to the Domino Park on Calle Ocho on any sunny day. It offers the Latino flavor that makes Miami what it is. The aroma of sea breeze mixed with fine cigar tobacco is very homely, and one would almost think that they were in Havana...if not... More

Maximiano Gomez park is the heart of Cuban culture in Little Havana. It's here that elderly men meet to play domino. It's a cultural experience. You can walk around or take a seat and just observe. People are welcoming and talkative. They are seriously players. Sometimes they mock each other. There is a also a beautiful mural with American continent... More

It's a small area but full of energy. This is where older Cubans come to play domino, the classic Cuban past time, although a few can be seen playing chess or cards. The energy in this place is exciting. They are skilled players, so make sure you know the game if you want to join in!

Want to learn to relax? Want to see how the locals enjoy life? If you don't buy Dominos to take back home with you, stay at the park longer. I fit into the crowd here speaking no spanish and not being a local. My first stop in Miami will be here to greet my friends made in my last visit.

I was expecting something much larger, but very small little fenced in area that had lots of tables to play chess or dominoes. Not a green park, but more a large patio, and located in the middle of Calle Ocho. I was expecting a green area in town that had some dominio tables with lots pf players. You look at... More

Nice little Domino Park in Little Havana, Miami. When you pass by, you will see local old Cuban guys playing dominos and smoking cigar. This is not a place for amateurs. They mean business here!

Maximo Gomez Park - or Domino Park, as the locals call it - doesn't look like much of a park. There's no grass, it is enclosed in a cage-like fence, and it abuts a McDonald's. Inside are rows of all-weather tables and chairs bolted to the ground. Some of them are marked for chess, but most have built-in trays to... More

I've only actually been there once and liked it very much. Everyone was real friendly and were happy to chat with everyone. I drive by here often and toot my horn and they always wave back. It's mostly older Cuban folks playing dominoes a favorite pastime of Cuba. This is little Havana area so there are a lot of little... More
