SW 8th Street, between Cuban Memorial Boulevard and SW 18 Avenue, Miami

The Basics

The neighborhood’s colorful spirit unfolds on Calle Ocho, Little Havana’s bustling main street, reminiscent of Cuba. On this block between SW 15th and 17th avenues, the Miami Arts District contains a string of studios and galleries that showcase some of the best Latin American art in the country. Nearby, travelers will find the Bay of Pigs Museum & Library, which enshrines the crew of the ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion, and on the two blocks at SW 13th Street, south of Calle Ocho, are monuments of Cuban patriots and freedom fighters.

Many tour options combine a visit to Little Havana with tours of other popular spots in Miami and the surrounding area: South Beach and its art deco architecture, Miami Beach, the Everglades, Coconut Grove, or the art galleries in nearby Wynwood. Walking tours and bike tours are easy ways to see the area, while bus tours can be a welcome respite from Miami's summer heat. Half-day Little Havana tours take in the neighborhood's sights, while full-day options also visit other Miami highlights.

Authentic Little Havana Food and Culture Walking Tour
The Little Havana Food and Culture Walking Tour was an eye opener. As a visitor to Miami I did not know that a truly Cuban community existed in Miami - where even some people living there could not speak English! Our guide was very knowledgeable, the food was good and the distance traveled on foot not too great. A highly enjoyable experience.

Little Havana Food and Walking Tour in Miami
So much fun. I was worried about taking a tour with all the restrictions due to covid but I'm glad we did. It was easy to hear our guide Gina speak. She was such a pleasure. We had a great time and it felt like it was the perfect length of time to enjoy ourselves and take in the culture.

Cultural and Food Walking Tour through Little Havana in Miami
Mariela was an excellent tour guide. She super exceeded all of our expectations. Very informative. Answered all questions. The tour was worth the walk. The only thing I didn't like about the tour was the payment. On the description for the vegetarian option it says "$10" but then I was asked again to pay more money after. I think everything should be said in the description so that customers won't think that there is false advertisement. But other than that, Mariela was great.
