It’s impossible to live in or visit Miami and not experience Cuban culture. We have a whole neighborhood dedicated to it, which we’ve even named Little Havana. The city goes through Cuban coffee like a champ. We birthed Pitbull and gave Camila Cabello a home. We roast pigs for Christmas. The list goes on and on.
Cuba’s influence in Miami dates back to the 1950s and ’60s, when Fidel Castro came to power and Cubans started fleeing to South Florida for a better life. Fast-forward to 2018, and it’s so ingrained in our city that it feels like it’s been there since the beginning.
From our food and music, what we wear, our buildings, and even how we drink our coffee, Cuba’s history touches every part of Magic City. Here are some of the best places to find it.
