Probably the most cultural place you can visit in Miami. Calle Ocho or 8th street is heavy traffic tourist area where you can be visiting Cuba in Miami. Also, amazing food in every corner!

For the five months that I have lived in Little Havana, Miami, Florida; I would like to let others know that Little Havana has been a very nice, and quiet neighborhood to live. Everyone that lives in an apartment complex know each other and are kind towards another. Little Havana has local stores and places to visit that are within walking distance. I enjoy living in Little Havana because of the great outdoors and environment and parks. The schools are near Overton or Miami- Dade but are very good schools. Little Havana is a great place and safe place to live and I enjoy living there and getting a good Miami experience.
I have been living in this neighborhood for about 17 years, it is predominantly hispanic. It use to be riddled with a lot of violance and crime during the 90's and early 2000's. Due to the rise in investments in the surrounding areas like Brickell, Downtown and Coral Gables; Little Havana now has hope and much potential for growth. I am already beginning to see the signs of the renewal and rejuvenation from Little Havana. For example the, major crimes are less previlent but you will still see petty crime being committed around the area, For example narcotics, theft and public drinking are among the most common I would say. The increased police presence and attention has also affected the area positively. They have really cleaned up the streets. I am sure the city is trying to give Miami's hispanic center a new look. The community has even come together and organize a bike marathon that runs around the surrounding neighborhoods. I believe it's called Critical Mass.
