Description

A vibrant Hispanic culture permeates everything in Little Havana – colorful murals, monuments to heroes past and present, elderly men playing dominoes as they discuss politics, and cigar rollers deeply at work amidst Little Havana’s ever-present aroma of Cuban coffee. These scenes of daily Little Havana life play out amidst a backdrop of Little Havana’s pulsating music, vibrant storefronts, unique art galleries and quaint restaurants.The neighborhood’s colorful spirit unfolds on Calle Ocho, Little Havana’s bustling main street, packed with shops and restaurants. Farther down Calle Ocho, between SW 15th and 17th avenues, the Arts District contains a string of studios and galleries that showcase some of the best Latin American art in the country. Nearby, the Bay of Pigs Museum & Library enshrines the crew of the ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion. The two blocks SW 13th street, south of Calle Ocho, contain a series of monuments of Cuban patriots and freedom fighters.

Little Havana (or La Pequeña Habana), is the district of Miami that hosts the largest Cuban and Latino community in the world. The beating heart is undoubtedly Calle Ocho, which houses several memorials to important stages in Cuban history. Murals give character and vibrancy to some areas, while theaters, restaurants and parks make Little Havana a cultural hotspot to go to with the whole family.
