Named after the capital city of Cuba, Little Havana is a social and cultural enclave running west Downtown and Brickell to Douglas Avenue, with the Miami River as its northern border and Coral Way to its south.

Encompassing several blocks of residential streets, a quick trip on foot from its famous Art-Deco architecture, colorful street murals, and its distinctive sight, the giant statues of roosters, Little Havana is a constant celebration of Cuban heritage, boasting Latin-inspired restaurants, bakeries, fruit stands, cigar shops, rum bars, art galleries, music venues, and a distinctly diverse Latin American flair that most people can't get enough of.

In fact, if you're looking for a picture-perfect, IG-worthy scene, Little Havana may be the game-changer you seek, offering a different "multiverse" of Miami-- with a side of fried plantains!
