Visit Cuba without leaving U.S. soil at Little Havana, with its lively restaurants, music, and Cuban street culture. Stroll down Calle Ocho, the neighborhood's main street, and take in the atmosphere--watch an older generation play dominoes, eat fruit from one of the many fruit stands, drink a fragrant Cuban coffee, or indulge in a locally rolled cigar from El Credito cigar factory. Dance to traditional Cuban and Afro-Cuban street music, drop by one of the many galleries, or visit one of the four Catholic churches in the area. Be sure to try a pastelito, a traditional sweet and flaky Cuban pastry filled with cheese or cheese and guava.

  • Little Havana is a cool wee area of Miami. We were told to keep to the main streets as some areas are abit dodgy. We never felt unsafe.  more »
  • The area has come a long way and has become a major tourist hotspot. Take a cab to Domino park and you can stroll the day away. Good food choices and live music is pretty common all days.  more »
  • Loved to see the local flavor, the art, parks and architecture. According to our guide the area is turning for the better all the time.  more »

Where to stay in Miami

Miami's South Beach boasts one of the largest collections of boutique hotels in the country. Though it can be quite expensive, staying in this area ensures proximity to the city's best shoreline, clubs, shopping, and restaurants, not to mention Art Deco buildings. Mid-Beach and downtown also make great places to stay, offering some superb apartment rentals and small hotels, though the neighborhoods are not as glamorous as South Beach. If you're traveling on a budget, avoid the high season during winter months. If money is no object, get a room with a view before it gets too hot along the famous stretch of Collins Avenue between 15th and 23rd Street.
