What you'll do

THIS IS A WALKING TOUR filled with amazing amazing flavors, sounds, and photo-ops!
We'll meet at the Tower Theater box-office, take a 'welcome pic' and get going! BTW stops will have shade and A/C for those who need it.

PART 1: CA, FE... CITO, FECITO, FECITO - We begin at local ‘ventanita’ where you'll pick a 'cafecito' or 'cortadito' and I’ll help you pair it with your favorite ‘pastelito’ or ‘croqueta’ THIS ONE’S ON ME!

PART 2: WALK IT OUT - We'll take the Calle Ocho Walk Of Fame past the stars of Gloria Estefan, Pitbull, and Celia Cruz. We'll get in the action at Domino Park. We'll pose in front of murals and visit the CubaOcho gallery. Oh and if you like Pina Coladas, there’s a secret-garden bandshell shaped like a giant Pineapple at one of our stops.

PART 3: FLAVORFUL FINALE - We'll visit Old’s Havana Restaurant, home of casual authentic Cuban cuisine and pull up to Azucar for a 'Miami-only' exclusive: Abuela Maria Ice Cream (vanilla with ruby red guava chunks, cream cheese, and galleta Maria pieces... you've NEVER had an ice cream like this). Lastly, we’ll take in the sight and aroma of cigars rolled right in front of you at Guantanamera.

Hi I'm Carlos, Miami native and three-peat Airbnb Superhost.
I have been entertaining Miami as a DJ and event host since the 90s, and have insider access to attractions, history, and cuisine that you do not find in books, billboards, or blogs.

TROPIC LIKE IT'S HOT - LITTLE HAVANA is an art/food walk of Calle Ocho filled with flavor and amazing photo ops. We begin at a favorite Miami spot for 'cafecitos' and a snack ON ME! We then move to the walking tour, and spice things up with a Cuban food sitdown, and cool drinks. Along the way you can try a 'jugo' at the farmer's market, a Miami-only ice cream you will not find anywhere else, or you can grab a cigar fresh from a hand-roller's table.

I was inspired to host by my friends who say "Hey I'm coming to Miami, show me something!" and treat my guests just like I would those same friends.

Where you'll be

We'll begin at the Tower Theater, take a welcome picture, and head to the murals at La Esquina De La Fama where we will gas up at their 'ventanita' with Cuban coffee and finger snacks.

Next we will walk Calle Ocho, visiting Domino Park, the Farmer's Market, Ball and Chain and a few Cuban art galleries located in the neighborhood.

When it's time to sit and relax we'll visit Old's Havana Restuarant, Azucar Ice Cream, and Guantanamera cigars.

Carlos was very nice and helpful and made it feel like a lunch out with friends. He was super chill and I would definitely recommend him and go again.

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

We will be walking outdoors, but the distances between each stop are short and we are under a roof at all our stops (minus the bandshell). I would definitely classify this as a relaxing tour.
