“not the best in miami”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

This place parking is horrible ordeal, the streets are crowded and the language barrier is horrible thing. The only thing to see are the rooster in various corners of the streets.

“"Not what I was expecting"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

I went to little Havana because I wanted to see some Cuban culture, authentic Cuban food, and dominoes playing. However, I didn't get to see much. Probably because I went down la calle 8 after 5:30. I did get to take pictures of a monument and a couple of Cuban cigars stores and factories but they were closed. Overall, little Havana it's just a neighborhood where some Cuban culture is still alive. Nothing like China Town in NY or Little Italy.

“Cuban culture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Great place to experience to Cuban culture in Miami. You can experience the best Cuban cuisine, music & play dominoes in the park. The best restaurants can be found around Calle Ocho such as La Carreta, Versailles & Bahama's Fish Market & Restaurant. A must go place every time I go to Miami!

“What a fun experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012 via mobile

I actually walked to little Havana from downtown Miami. It was probably about 20 minutes, pretty easy but just watch for turning cars. I have to preface that I am a single young woman going by myself (daytime). I felt very safe on the main road. I didn't wander off the main road (8th) I really enjoyed the people. The old folks were so sweet. Stop at a little fruit stand/food joint called Los Pinarenos fruiteria. They have awesome sugar cane water, local mango smoothies and a killer vegetarian sandwich. I also picked up a hand painted tile from Marta ismail's shop for $30. Beautiful artwork! If you like authentic and cultural, pay Calle Ocho in Little Havana a visit!
