Virtual - Little Havana
Across the bay on the mainland beats the heart of Miami in Little Havana. Your expert guide will connect with you virtually to share the vibrancy of this historic humble neighborhood. This is a live tour of many sorts. Crossing the road to greet you will be live roosters, hens and baby chicks. Then your guide will lead you to the oldest fruit farmers market in Miami and share tropical fruits that are rare in US and Europe. Learn about their flavors and uses by locals. Continuing on, there's a stop at "Memorial Boulevard" and the significance of the Bay of Pigs monument; a striking landmark tree of national identity and religious practices; a stop at the bakery to learn about traditional pastries and finger foods; a highlight is the cigar factory to watch workers hand roll tobacco leaves into fine cigars; the many murals on buildings up and down Calle Ocho.
Your guide will share other tips on places to visit for music, dancing and popular bar lounges for planning your future trip. We can offer a garden variety tour as mentioned above or customize this tour to focus on any subject of interest-political history, food (influences and the ingredients used in dishes), Cuban art to name a few.
