Fill your carts with the latest fashion finds alongside delicious Cuban food, endless salsa dancing, quirky art galleries, and historic spots — this is Little Havana, the heart of Miami's Cuban diaspora!       

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

Encompassing several blocks of residential streets, a quick trip on foot taking you to its famous Art-Deco architecture, colorful street murals, and distinctive giant rooster statues, Little Havana offers 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 you can't find elsewhere.

The same vibe radiates throughout Little Havana's shopping scene of unassuming malls and famous thoroughfares, offering a coveted balance of modest and high-end retail, perfect for a well-rounded shopping splurge in Magic City!
