Excited about visiting. Very little to offer visitors. Only 1 or 2 blocks of anything and a few establishments were closed.

I had always wanted to visit Calle Ocho in my past trips to Miami. I am very happy that I went. Calle Ocho gives you a small glance at Cuban life. People playing domino in a plaza, others relaxing on the benches. There's many restaurants to choose from. Desserts too! Small gift shop where my husband found a great cafe... More

Good place to get some good Cuban food, apart from Versailles (which is very good and the place where most of the tourists go). Neighborhood really isn't that nice or worth going out of your way to see, when there is so much else to... More

A drive along Calle Ocho is like entering a foreign country. All the signs are in Spanish. There are Cigar factories, botanicas, hand painted signs, walk up windows for expresso and pastelitos and the sound of Latin music. Calle Ocho is also the home of the world’s largest street festival every March and where the world’s longest conga line, 119,986... More

Yes AZUCAR, Calle Ocho is well known as Cuban food, music, and Tabaco. Parque de Domino is the best part of Calle Ocho. This really remind me on when I came in the 70' and still look the same although road and side walk are different. Bring camera or video to record antiques and tradition values and time. Please be...

This is just a street, really. And, it's a congested and dirty street. But, there is a little corner cafe by Domino Park that serves the best Mojito I've ever had, so go for the Mojito.

Great place to visit real cuban culture!! From the food, the people, to the city deco, we love it during the day! I wouldn't recommend this place at night with small children since there is very busy traffic and dark alleyways....it is the city afterall. Fantastic place to visit overall!!

Some shops are there, and a bit of taste of Cuban culture. If you are falimiar with Cuban cigars, you might find something good for you.
