South Beach, is one of the hot spots for all tourists visiting Miami.

Without a doubt, it is an unmissable destination!
Cubans in Miami are very proud of this neighborhood. Calle Ocho (SW 8th Street) is probably the most famous street in Little Havana. It is a living testimony of the “American dream” pursued by thousands of Cubans, those who fled to Miami after Fidel Castro came to power in 1959. The tourist who visits the area will find many restaurants and shops that are replicas of restaurants and shops Cuban Mediterranean-style houses with rocking chairs on the porch, air perfumed with tobacco and good coffee, Latin music from record stores and cigar shops.
Design District is a small suburb of Miami located about three kilometers north of Downtown. A place full of exhibition centers, interior design, decoration, art galleries, boutiques and “very cool” restaurants. Most of Miami’s creative and artists, such as architects, graphic designers and interior designers, have settled in this district, hence their name.
