Experience the Cuban way in the USA, enjoying a cup of cortadito, the Latin infusion, a handful of local hangouts, and a chat with one of the neighborhood’s cultural ambassadors. Discover the unique atmosphere of Miami’s Little Havana with a local guide.
What to Expect
Your 2-hour tour of Miami’s Little Havana begins with a visit to either Marlins Park (seasonal) or the Freedom Tower, both historic landmarks that are near and dear to the Cuban community. Check out some historic architectural beauties, as well as some unique collections of art.
Of course, you can’t truly appreciate Little Havana without a Cuban coffee in hand, so you’ll be treated to a cortadito, or Cuban espresso, which is sure to give you the boost you need to keep moving on your Miami tour! Learn how to roll your own fine Cuban cigar from a world master at the famous Gran Habano factory.
Then you’ll head off to meet and greet Roberto Ramos, a Cuban historian and collector of Cuban artwork. Ramos is the founder of Cubaocho, a cultural center featuring a historic collection of works from 1803 to 1958. Sip a mojito while listening to the incredible journey Ramos made to preserve Cuban paintings and cultural history.
See the important Bay of Pigs monument en route to a favorite local juice bar, where you’ll get to quench your thirst with a dose of sugarcane juice or a drink out of a freshly opened coconut. Visit SW 8th Street to experience the Caribbean flavor that fills the air, from the classic Domino Park where locals challenge one another to domino games, to the conga music that you hear live in the streets.
