“Must Have In Little Havana” – by the Travel Channel
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 found at a local famous ventanita.
Baked daily at Yisil Bakery, this guava ( guayaba ) pastelito filling is smooth, light, not too sweet, and incredibly flavorful.
The Island Staple
Indulge with a glass of refreshing guarapo and enjoy a brief education of the various exotic tropical fruits found in South Florida.
Los Pinarenos Fruteria
Made with abuelita’s secret recipes and combined with a modern, latin flair, the Abuela Maria ice cream will cool you down from Miami’s “sunny disposition.”

“When visitors think about the food Miami is famous for, Cuban is at the top of the list – and the biggest concentration of Cuban restaurants and businesses is in the neighborhood known as Little Havana. The food here is delicious and varied, but choosing can be hard. That’s the beauty of the field trips offered by Miami Culinary Tours, a specialist in all things local and edible (long rated No. 1 in the city by TripAdvisor, and in 2018, the fifth-best food experience in the world).” Read Full Article Here
