If you're in Miami, make sure to take at least a couple of hours in little Habana and Calle Ocho. This street offers the closest real latin vibe you can get in Miami. With cigar shops, cuban items, food, music and art! Make sure to visit Cuba Ocho, a bar and a museum in one, where they make delicious Mojitos... More

If you've been to Cuba before, don't bother. Calle Ocho was very disappointing. I imagined Little Havana like Havana, small streets, full of people, music everywhere. 8st is a 3 ways street, typical US street. Yes you have couple of tiendas and cigar shops but frankly you have a better cuban feeling downtown Miami.

If you have been fortunate enough to experience the real Havana old town or Havana Veija to give its proper name then you should set your expectations that for Little Havana, the emphasis is very much on the “little”. But that said Calle Ocho (SW 8th Street) is worth a stroll to take in the Cuban bars, Cigar shops, Gift... More

If you love Carnival and it's excitment then I totally suggests. If you have never seen West Indian Carnival, this would give you an idea of what you are missing.

The best place for a walk, dance, bar hop, delicious food, cigars, Cuban nostalgia! Not only is it a great place to take in a little bit of Cuba, but it's also a great place for authentic Mexican tacos as well. There's also a Cuban ice-cream parlor! Enjoy!

A man on our flight to told us just to visit the part between 13th and 17th. Good advice. Lots of Cuban restaurants, touristy things, Bay of Pigs monument. Eat and visit-no need to stay over three hours.

Not a lot to see but don;t go to Miami without checking out Little Havana and Calle Ocho.There is a nice outdoor area to sit and people watch which one of the best parts of traveling.

We enjoyed the pastalitos, croquettes, Cuban coffee, friendly people and the heritage that is being preserved so well.

This is a wonderful way to spend a few hours taking in the atmosphere ( for example Domino Park and " Mr one dollar peanuts ") shopping and restaurants ( they are not all Cuban - there is Argentinian, Mexican, Colombian etc). And of course there are the cigar shops where the cigars are hand - rolled in front of... More
