We were only in Maimi one night before our cruise. Quick little stop on a Sunday night. Not much going on. Restaurants were closing around 9. Grabbed an ice cream cone and headed back to the hotel by the airport. Would have liked to see the neighborhood hopping.

Personally I found this quite a depressing area to visit. Potentially it could be different in the evening when the bars are busy but during the day it just feels run down. Arguably, it could be said that this is a good representation of what the real Havana is like. However, it is lacking the vibrancy, music and atmosphere of... More

It's a cute area but it;s VERY small. Just a couple of blocks with a few touristy trinket shops and some decent but overproced restaurants. If you are on the hop-on hop-off go ahead and stop here but I wouldn't drive across Miami for it.

Full disclosure - we visited Little Havana in the evening, so could be that the area is much livelier and nicer during day time. The wall graffiti was cool (there is even a cool mural on the wall of a local McDonalds!) and there were lots of little restaurants everywhere, but most were not particularly inviting. It was a cool... More

We took the bus here and enjoyed walking Called Ochoa. It was like taking a walk back in time, with old cars parked on the side of the road here and there. Unfortunately we didn't get to explore it as much as we would have liked due to a sudden rain storm. I would recommend taking a stroller and good... More

A great place to truly see and experience Cuban culture. Learn a lot of the history of little Havana. Excellent cigars at Bello Cigars. First taste of Cuban coffee, loved it. Stop in Little Havana while in Miami, you will love the cultural experence

A wonderful place of cultural transference. Make sure to have a mojito in the many bars, dance with the performers and listen to the wonderful live music.

Learn a little Spanish since everyone doesn't speak English. Great Cuban culture. Food is awesome! Just find a decent restaurant. Versailles stay jammed pack so didn't wait the 25 mins to eat there. Did eat at another place across the street, I forgot the name but the food was just as good. It's something about that coffee tho.

Seeing little Havana is a big recommendation if you plan to try Cuban food. Driving through the area was nice e for us, but it only has 4 stars because we decided to try Cuban food. The food was amazing. So, visit this area if you're interested to see a bit life style and if you interested infood. The restaurant... More

This is the heart and soul of old Miami. This was nothing but Cubans in the 70's 80's and 90's. It was neglected by the city for a long time, but slowly they are fixing it back to be the place it was back in the day. SW 8th ST CALLE OCHO has lots of new Restaurant's, tabacco shops, smoke... More
