|About these ratings|
Located to the immediate west of downtown Miami, Little Havana is the symbolic and cultural capital for Cuban-Americans in Miami. The neighborhood brings in droves of visitors with its vibrant atmosphere and excellent food.
Calle Ocho (8th Street) is the center of activity here. Maximo Gomez Park, also known as Domino Park, is located at the corner of Calle Ocho and 15th Avenue and is a pleasant place to hang out and take in a game of dominoes or chess. Travelers recommend El Pub for its authentic Cuban food and cheap prices. Every March, the Calle Ocho Festival takes over Miami for a week, drawing thousands of attendees for a massive street festival celebrating Carnaval with tons of music, food and dancing.
Travelers also enjoy visiting the cigar factories and the Cuban Memorial Boulevard on the corner of 13th Avenue and Calle Ocho. However, some visitors just don't get the area's appeal. One TripAdvisor user says, "It is a very cool destination, but not one I would go out of my way for except for the food or the cigars."
