Great place to experience the influence of the Cuban people, as well as the melting of the other Hispanic cultures.

It's one of the most important and long streets in Miami but there's not too much to see. There are otrher options to go to visit in Miami first.

The part of Calle 8 in the little Havana is really a place to have a lot of fun. Very important: If you like to smoke good cigars, you will find more than one perfect places.

Nothing to do with Cuba there is nothing to see expect some stores to buy cigars which are not different from what you can find in Miami Beach

You cannot miss the giant roosters. Good place to take a stroll and experience the local culture and cuisines. Try the local ice-cream shops.

Fun place to visit, lots of local eateries, shops and cigar rolling - a great flavour of Cuba. Local music, dancing and a fun vibe in the evening.

I received mixed suggestions from my Uber driver, a local, and another traveler. The Uber driver was probably the best resource as he was upfront in saying that it was a great place to go. Go during the day. People are friendly. Enjoy. Stay in...More

A lovely area of town that is great in the daytime, it might be different at night ... you can walk from Bayside but it takes about half an hour.. the area is very Cuban so you do not feel you are in America. even...More

I would say the best part of Calle Ocho begins at the restaurant El Pub, so that is around where I would usually park and walk down, meaning, 14, 13, 12, 11, etc.

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 Replies)
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.
