Experience Miami's Cuban Culture
Calle Ocho or Little Havana is where all things Cuban and Latino come together in Miami. Start your walking tour of Little Havana at the Maximo Gomez Park (a.k.a. Domino Park). If you play dominos and have the patience to wait for a spot at a table, you will be playing the hottest game this side of the Florida Straits. Or just watch as all ages play for hours and hours. Then follow the pink marble of the Calle Ocho Walk of Fame that honors Latin stars, such as the Queen of Salsa, Celia Cruz. Stop for tostones (fried plantains) and ropa vieja (shredded beef), or a medianoche, a morning or late night version of the Cuban sandwich with sweeter, lighter bread. And don't be afraid to try some chicharrones (fried pork rinds). Buen provecho (bon appétit)!
