Miami’s Latin side comes to life in this Spanish-speaking quarter, where South Florida sunshine meets hole-in-the-wall cantinas, live salsa dancing and bars with bountiful rum collections.
The Miami neighborhood of Little Havana has been shaped by the waves of Cuban immigrants who’ve brought their distinctive music, flavors and street life to the west of Downtown. The stretch of Southwest 8th Street, known as Calle Ocho, is the buzzy area’s main artery. A stroll along it will take you past monuments to Cuban independence, colorful murals and ventanitas – walk-up windows selling Cuban street food. Start at 27th Avenue to enjoy the best of this vibrant slice of Cuban culture.
