“Too little Cuban culture”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Guess I was waiting to hear salsa on the streets and people dancing all the time..It's just a street with some Cuban stores.

“Not a place for tourists”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I enjoy going to calle 8 to the theater, as they bring plays from Latin America all the time and they have many theaters in this district. But otherwise, not much to see here.

“Rough Neighborhood”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Little Havana... need I say more.
This is an old, dilapidated neighborhood. Can be dangerous. Nothing to see here. There's a reason most of the highways pass right by.

“A trip to Little Havana”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

This is the area where in the 60's and 70's the Cuban refugees found a place to live, work and mingle. A second generation has moved out of the area leaving new refugees from Central and South America, but the Cuban flavor is still there, restaurant, shops, movie theaters. It is a way of visiting a piece of Havana without traveling 90 miles and most important, the stores have items to sell and the restaurants have food, contrary to the real Havana.
