Around Presidente Supermarket there was more locals but a couple blocks away the tourists wandered the sidewalks and crowded the restaurants and stores.

Many painted rooster statues by artist Pedro Damian were located in various spots during the walk. It came out of an initiative to celebrate the local culture. There were also many different murals covering sides of buildings in parking lots.

A Latin walk of fame graced a few blocks between 12th and 17th.

A local Dominos Park was busy with people hanging out or playing games.

The Cubaocho Museum and Performing Arts Center was a cool stop with Cuban history, cigars and rum.

The Bay of Pigs Museum was offset by a block but closed.

Even the McDonald’s had its own Little Havana theme.

Street parking required either downloading an app or calling a 800 number, registering your car’s license plate and then paying the fee based on time chosen. Side street parking were limited to residents with permits.

I spent less than an hour here as I went to Versailles for my lunch.

It was fun walking up and down Calle Ocho. Lots of shops, restaurants, and artwork to look at. You can buy cigars, guayaberas, cuban things, food, snap pics with artwork and check out Domino Park, a park where lots of the elders come chill and play dominos. Fun little spot.

We were able to park for free near a park. We had great food and a huge Cuban sandwich was only $4.50. We ate at Party Cake Bakery and my sandwich was great. We enjoyed experiencing the Cuban culture and murals in the area. The area seemed pretty safe but I would recommend a mask during COVID times. Wynwood is another nearby area to check out.

You will find great food, great music and nice little shops representing Cuban culture here. It’s fun to walk up and down Calle Ocho to see everything from cigar shops to large rooster statues to the walk of fame. This part of Little Havana was probably my favorite part of visiting Miami.

If you're not from South Florida you'll be astonished at some of the local flavor offered in the Little Havana end of Calle Ocho (8th Street). There are cafes and bars as well as local shops selling cigars and other cuban items. You can go from the Tower Theater, to Ball and Chain bar or Domino Park, all around the same 15th Avenue block. You for sure want to sample some cuban food at one of the restaurants, El Pub, El Exquisito, or Esquina de la Fama. On the weekends it is full of out of town folks mingling with the locals. There a few art galleries worth checking out as well. The sidewalk features a Walk of Fame. There's street parking with Pay-By-Phone, you have to get lucky to find someone leaving to park.

The commercial part of Little Havana sits on this street called Calle Ocho (8th Street).

Lots of restaurants, gift shops, and various other businesses.

Many of the restaurants stay open into the evening, but a lot of the gift shops and such close down once it starts getting dark.

There are many attractions to see along this part of Little Havana, from big roosters to Domino Park to the Bay of Pigs monument, to the Cuban Walk of Fame.

Domino Park itself was closed but you can still see much of it through the fence.

You can purchase everything Cuban, from handmade cigars to cocktails to cuisine.

One of the best things about Miami. Love the artwork, the walk of fame and the giant rooster statues. We really enjoyed the food and the welcoming people. The cigar operations are very interesting too. If you have time, check out the Bay of Pigs monument and park. Some good history there.

My husband and I spent three days here and loved every minute of it. It is a nice walking area, with many shops and restaurants. There is a very nice ice cream shop with some very imaginative flavors, a churro shop(it was the best churro i have every had) and numerous great coffee shops as well as many cigar shops. Be sure to walk down the street with the Bay of Pigs statue, very interesting.

Calle Ocho is the main part of the Cuban neighborhood called little Havana. It has nothing in common with the original Havana, but some cigar and souvenir shops and Cubans living in side street.
Imo its Miami's biggest tourist trap. Best of Calle Ocho are several very good restaurants with reasonable prices.

We had a wonderful time wandering through Calle Ocho in Little Havana. There are many restaurants to choose from and most of them offer delicious food and drinks. You will also find many great little shops that represent the Cuban culture including my favorite: Cigar shops! Be sure to get there hungry so you can try all the tasty food around.
