Did you know that on the day of Fidel Castro's death, Little Havana exploded? A 3-day festival celebrating the old man's "entry to Hell"- it got so out of hand that the National Guard was almost called in.
The day Fidel Castro waltzed into Cuba's Capital was the very same day that Little Havana was created. During the first years of the Castro regime, thousands fled the island- exiles who had had enough of the rampant violence, the persecutions, the insanity that the man had brought to their lives. Today, Little Havana is a cultural masterpiece. The cultural and political capital of "free Cubans" in the world. A place where that island's traditions live on, where they perservere. Enter its streets and bask in the majesty of an age-old culture, one full of drinks, laughter, and a fighting spirit that yearns, years later, to once more overtake their island and free their people.
"Some of the stories brought tears to my eyes. Families ripped apart, soldiers and rebels betrayed- not only by their country, but by our own. It really gives you a whole new perspective on Latin American politics and social issues."
Our Little Havana Everything Tour takes you through the colorful streets of this one-of-a-kind neighborhood. Through some of its most iconic buildings, settings, and shops- giving you a behind-the-scenes look at the drama that spawned this cultural melting pot. This tour has it all: mojitos, family traditions, native customs, colorful hats and shirts, CIA black-ops missions, Rebel invasions, and a modern take of LatAm issues. Get swept up by an epic narrative, one full of love, lust, and loss.
Our walking tour takes you through 1.5 miles of Miami real estate, where you will visit different sites linked to Little Havana's history, amongst them:
We will stop at each point and share true stories of the people that created and inspired them. Retell the long-forgotten tales of a people's struggle and the tragedy they have had to endure and overcome. Tales that warm the heart and feed the soul.
Come join us on this colorful tour, and bask in the strength, the rapturous spirit, and zest for life that Little Havana has embedded in each brick and cobblestone.
"People in Cuba, they know what I stand for, and there's a lot of people in Cuba that stand for the same...but they can't say it."
