Little Havana Food & Cultural Tour     $159


Taste authentic Cuban cuisine while learning about Little Havana’s culture and heritage. This exciting Little Havana Food & Cultural Tour explores the rich history and culinary delights of a vibrant neighborhood. We will taste authentic Cuban cuisine and listen to the stories behind those doing the cooking. We’ll learn about spiritual beliefs the community practices including Santeria; visit a cigar factory, explore Domino Park and The Cuba Ocho Art Museum.


And - We will savor some of the Best Bites in Town such as a picadillo-stuffed empanada at one of the oldest restaurants in the area. Filled with rustic charm and graced by a large illustration of Cuba across the walls, this establishment forms part of the daily routine of most Little Havana locals. Although the El Pub Restaurant isn’t La Bodeguita in Cuba, Hemingway’s favorite watering hole, the drink at this local Taverna is as close as you can get without a passport. Virgin drinks are available also.


Next we’ll visit the Ball and Chain, an authentic Cubano restaurant painted with music memorabilia from Cuba’s glorious past. According to the Travel Channel, you must have a Ventanita - This dark, potent liquid is Miami’s everyday fuel. Similar to an espresso, this ultra-sweet and revitalizing shot of energy is a Cuban staple. For a sweet bite we’ll sample a guava pastelito from the Yisell Bakery. All this and so much more! What a fun way to

learn about our Cuban neighbors.
