If someone tells you Miami is all about Ocean Drive and South Beach, they're wrong. Little Havana is a unique, quaint and absolutely unmissable part of Miami that everyone must do. A Cuban settlement, as the name would suggest, Little Havana is dotted with eclectic shops selling Cuban cigars and other ethnic items. Of the few hours we spent there,... More

Little Havana was a wonderful surprise. I loved learning about cigars at the many shops. Had a wonderful authentic meal at El Cristo along with a hearty mojito. Enjoyed seeing all the unique foods at Presidente Supermarket. Drank sugar cane juice and tried Cuban coffee (very sweet). Azucar had wonderful interesting flavors of ice-cream--I tried the guava and Cuban vanilla.... More

We enjoyed shopping for gift items in the stores here. The store & restaurant owners were very friendly. Also the best Majitos were served here.

This area is good for food and some history. You should have an exact place in mind because most cabs get confused by the area. I took a cab to domino park and explored the area. Also make sure you go to the tourist area because there is another side to this area just for locals and it's very dangerous!

Called here on our Big Bus trip and did the walking tour which was so interesting - you could almost imagine you were in Cuba with a real feel of the culture there. Great place and could have done with longer there, we had only 45 minutes.

I don't know why this is promoted as a tourist attraction. It was a local neighborhood with local businesses, nothing really exotic. There were a few restaurants we drove by that looked ok, but the roads are under construction and parking looked like a nightmare. My family is latin, and they were very disappointed. We won't go back.

I lived in Little Havana in 1999-2000, but it wasn't as cultural as it is now. There are several galleries, restaurants, and bars. Most shops now have English speaking staff, so don't feel that you will be lost if you don't speak Spanish.

You have to come with the right expectations here. A matter of taking a stroll, appreciate the culture that makes miami, and make an experience out of enjoying a cuban coffee at a counter on the road. Plan it for a stop.

Calle Ocho is okay. Not much to see but I recommend others to pay a visit. You never know what you are going to run into. Versailles, the market, el pub, la caretta... all the typical tourist spot.
