Aside from the two "vendors" we saw selling Haitian flags, or Haitian themed t-shirts, hats, etc.... there is nothing to see in Little Haiti. We stopped at a Record store that was not very good. We stopped at a "store" for a pastry that was part of a building that housed a car wash, gas station, and barber shop. The... More

I really didn't think there was that much to do here besides stopping in a few stores. Most of the businesses were closed including the visitor center. We did stop at Ball and Chain restaurant, which we loved!

Probably not as dangerous as the actual Haiti but I am uncertain there is really much to draw someone here especially as a tourist. There are some interesting murals on a few walls and some other places that have graffiti which can be viewed as art or as criminal mischief depending on one's point of view. There are some Creole...

Got mugged. Life ruined. All because of Little Haiti. Wannabe Little Havana which is way better. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. DRUGS EVERYWHERE.

Take it from a local - don't go here. Aside from being dangerous there is nothing to see here. Just a few rough neighborhoods.

My husband is Haitian, so this was a point of interest for us; however, what is it exactly? You cannot find even on their website what exactly constitutes the area you'd want to explore. That being said, we drove around and it was pretty economically low with a few scattered Haitian stores and restaurants. When you go to Little Havana... More

I'm going to frame this review by saying that I've back packed from Hungry to Romania as a solo female traveller and felt safer than I do staying in Little Haiti. I was in New Orleans for the Bayou Classic and walked around Bourbon Street and the French-quarter not long before there were shootings - and I STILL felt safer... More

Not a good choice for those without a very strong sense of adventure. While it is probably fairly benign compared to many spots in the world including I have to suspect a lot of places actually in Haiti, this area is not especially safe for tourists. I would certainly avoid it at night and if I had a desire for... More

Please do not go here especially if you are girls it is extremely unsafe. Yes it is like Haiti to an extent but all of the male staff and male taxi drivers have warned to stay away from here it is dangerous even in the day time. The strange thing is little Haiti is promoted in the same way as... More

Smelly and awful. Not worth the time or effort. The people are rude and the area is sketchy. I am shocked this is listed as a place to see in Miami.
