Expected more of a "Little (name of country/city)" ambiance but that might make it less authentic

Since everyone has heard of Little Havana and Cuban Americans in Miami, we were expecting to see something a bit more touristic, but the area has retained much of its authenticity... read more

Since everyone has heard of Little Havana and Cuban Americans in Miami, we were expecting to see something a bit more touristic, but the area has retained much of its authenticity and even simplicity. But, in a way, that was refreshing as it has not given up its place as a home for many Cuban Americans. The Welcome Center was... More

It was my first time in this colorful and very alive Cuban festival of Miami, the road was packed with all kinds of people eating, dancing, shopping and having fun, i stayed there for some hours hanging around although it was a hot day, i would like to come back and watch a normal day in this very alive street...

One should at least walk half mile up and down Calle Ocho once during a visit to Miami. And have a Café Cubano in one of the smaller restaurants. The restaurants seem to be overpriced in general, but that comes with every tourist spot in any place in the world.

If you want to experience a little bit of Cuba visit calle ocho(little Havana) for famous landmark restaurant Versailles,and others, good nightlife, and drink Cuban expresso which will give you that bolt of caffeine if needed. people are friendly and many tourists if you want to buy Cuban Nostalgia visit Sentir Cubano Shop and see Cuban memorabilia a little pricey...

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!
