If you want a tantalizing taste of Cuba during your stay in Miami, this food and culture walking tour is the perfect way to spend two and a half hours of your time here. You’ll meet your local expert guide at the Tower Theater and set off on a journey through Little Havana, where you’ll get to try some of the authentic flavors of this area while getting to know the Cuban culture…

This is a small-group tour, with no more than 12 guests; you’ll enjoy the intimacy as you spend your time walking through Little Havana, visiting family-run eateries to taste delicious food, and admiring all the cultural aspects of the area. This tour provides the opportunity to try the best Cuban food in town, in some of the highest-rated establishments. Eat like a local, and you’ll find yourself desperate to come back for more!

You’ll get to try an empanada at El Pub Restaurant, a rustic and charming little place that is hugely popular with the Cuban community here. An empanada is a small filled pastry, typically containing meat, guava or cheese, and they are a staple part of Cuban cuisine. And we can’t forget the mouthwatering Cubano, a sandwich with ham and lechon (pork), melted Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard - you’ll taste one of these at Ball and Chain, Olds Havana Restaurant or Salao.

Speaking of Ball and Chain, this is where you’ll get your hands on the most famous
Cuban cocktail ever: a mojito. The tasty combination of rum, sugar, lime, soda and tangy fresh mint is something you might have tasted before - but it’ll never be as good as one you get from a Cuban bartender! Cool down with a glass of freshly squeezed & super refreshing guarapo (sugar cane) juice at Los Pinarenos Fruteria, and enjoy a shot of energizing coffee at La Ventanita.

You’ll head to ChurroMania for some of the best churros in town: soft on the inside, crispy on the outside, and the perfect combination of sweet and salty. And at Azucar Ice Cream, you’ll be treated to the Abuela Maria ice cream - made with secret ingredients, nobody knows what makes it so good!

But contrary to popular belief, this tour isn’t all about the food. You’ll also get to experience some of the wonderful Cuban culture on display throughout the Little Havana neighborhood. Explore Domino Park, where people of all ages sit and play dominoes as they sip a tasty Cuban coffee. Here, you can admire the Damas De Blanco mural - created by the opposition movement Ladies in White.

And that’s not everything; as you walk from restaurant to restaurant you’ll see the Cuban Memorial Boulevard, the Tower Theater, and all the bright and quirky architecture and decor across Little Havana. You’ll even visit a local cigar factory where you can learn the art of cigar rolling! This 2.5-hour tour has it all, proving you don’t need to take a huge chunk out of your vacation to experience the authenticity of a local area.
