Miami’s Cuban exile community has thrived in this neighborhood for the past six decades. Named after the capital of the island nation, Little Havana is rife with Cuban restaurants such as Versailles and La Carreta, both with ventanitas where guests can sit in or take their pastelitos and croquetas to go. A stroll down the neighborhood’s main thoroughfare, Calle Ocho (8th Street), takes guests to Domino Park, where retirees play dominoes before onlookers. Along the way, the Calle Ocho Walk of Fame spotlights Latin performers of distinction. Venues such as the Ball & Chain and Hoy Como Ayer host live Latin bands throughout the week and dancing goes into the late-night hours.
