This is a wonderful little Cuban street you'll come across on any tour of the city. Great place to walk around, buy cigars, get some cuban coffee, take a picture with one of the roosters, etc. Highly recommend!

Worth stopping by while in Miami. Had to get a picture by one of the many Roosters in town, and check out the other stores.

When in Miami, you've gotta go over to Calle Ocho and check Little Havana out! It's very close to downtown -- just a few blocks west -- and easy to get to. We parked a couple of block off to the south and had no...More

It's just a couple of blocks long, but it's jam packed with shops, restaurants, and Cuban cigar shops. The street scene is not to be missed with the huge diversity of people from all over Latin America and Miami. Is there a difference? Viva la...More

Eighth Street in Little Havana, Miami, is a fun place to go to. The Cuban culture abounds everywhere. The colorful murals everywhere are awesome. Music can be heard at all eateries. And the food and drinks were amazing!

There is about 4 blocks that gives you a Cuban flavor. Personally, I liked the supermarkets and bakeries there . Had a pastry and cafe .

Calle Ocho is, literally, Eighth Street, the nexus of Cuban culture in Miami. There are many Cuban and Latin neighborhoods in the city, but Eighth Street, extending from near downtown Miami 40 blocks west to LeJeune Road, is famous for its seemingly endless stretch of...More

As we didn't have much time to explore since Orlando was a 4 hour drive back from Miami, but it was definitely a worthwhile walk after eating that delicious ice cream from Azucar. You can totally smell the fresh Cuban cigars and love the music...More

The above answer is correct. You can only bring dogs to some restaurants with a patio. Otherwise you are free to bring dogs on the streets.

Can I get Cuban Cigars anywhere from Ft. Lauderdale to Keys? (3 Replies)
Aloha, I will be flying into Ft. Lauderdale to visit people and will be headed to Key West during my stay... Is there anywhere to get decent Cuban Cigars? I will be headed to Calle Ocho in Miami for some factory visits but would love to find someone willing to sell authentic Cubans! Thanks!

Due to the ongoing trade embargo with Cuba, you will not be able to buy Cuban cigars in Florida. You can buy hand-rolled cigars -- usually from the Dominican Republic. You can even buy cigars hand-rolled by someone from Cuba. But no cigars physically made in Cuba.

Little Havana/Calle Ocho (1 Reply)
I have a long layover in Florida next month and will spend the day in Miami. I'd like to visit Little Havana and am looking for some tips. I'm assuming Calle Ocho is a must(?) Other things to see? Best authentic (affordable) restaurants? Where is a good place to dropped off by taxi? I will be with my 3 teenage daughters so safety is important, but it will be during the day/early evening. Thank you in advance!

Has anyone been to this on the last day and what was it like? We were thinking about taking a cab to and from it from downtown Miami on the last (big?) day.
