Little Havana Food and Walking Tour in Miami

Little Havana Food and Walking Tour in Miami

Meet your guide at the starting point in the afternoon to begin your walking tour of Little Havana. As you follow your guide through this bustling neighborhood -- noted as the center of social, cultural and political activity in Miami -- you’ll notice the distinct Cuban atmosphere, as many Cuban immigrants live here.

Your guide will take you to six local family-owned restaurants and cafes in the must-visit Calle Ocho area and give you an overview of the neighborhood’s traditional, rustic Cuban cuisine. Sample Cuban favorites such as homemade mamey and flan ice cream, chicken- and picadillo-stuffed plantain cups, guava pastelito (pastry), coffee, guarapo juice and mariquitas (plantain chips) or malanga frita -- similar to the taro root but sweeter, malanga is fried like a potato chip. Many of these dishes are prepared from family recipes that have been passed down through many generations. All tastings are included and sum up to a large, full lunch.

Not only will you try this neighborhood’s cuisine, but you’ll also get a taste of some local culture. Meet artists in their studios, listen to traditional Cuban music, watch cigar rollers, take a peek at Domino Park, and learn about the community’s spiritual beliefs and practices.

Your 2-hour Little Havana tour ends back at the Agustin Gainza Arts Gallery.

Really interesting tour. Ralph the guide was great, very informative and very amusing and kept things moving along really well. The food and drink stops were well organised and the many and varied 'samples' were so delicious. The added extra of the history lesson, providing insights into how the Cuban area of Little Havana came to be, was fascinating.

Ralph is a star! Tours can be worthless without a good tour guide, but Ralph makes it all worth it. He is a wealth of knowledge and his anthropological approach to explaining culture and history is fantastic! He's also got a great sense of humor. The highlights of the tour has got to be the empenadas and mojitos.

Money extremely well spent! A little less walking than I expected, enough time to linger at each restaurant and have fun without getting bored, a super charismatic and outgoing guide, and some seriously delicious food! I've been on food tours abroad, and in Chicago and NYC, and this was on the top! The portion sizes were larger than I expected without feeling beastly full after. The guide we had was outgoing, knowledgeable, gave a lot of cultural and local historical info, and happily took questions people had. You will not regret this tour!
