  1. good article,it is cool to know where the locals are going in Miami, instead of ending up in tourist trap in SOBE ….

  2. I’m down with Pitbul on the Flea Market. I love that place. It’s a bit ghetto. Its in a bad neighborhood but its an experience to go there. I get my Gold Grills and my conch fritters there !! If urban clothing and hip hop wear are your style then its great.

  3. Before you go to La Careta, please be mindful of the crowd and plan to get there on time. They do not take reservations, therefore it helps to hang around there and get in. The food is so delicious that it is totally worth the wait. We ordered a lot of food but just could not stop eating. It was delicious. I would highly recommend this place.

  4. La Carreta is my favorite place to eat in Miami, hands down. The Cafe Con Leche is seriously to die for. I came here with my family while on a trip here, and my son fell in love with everything Cuban. For the rest of the trip he wanted to eat Cuban food. La Carrera is definitely the way to go. .

    Pitbull is the best ambassador for Miami. They guy used the called Mr.305 and nowsday he is Mr. Worldwide.

  6. My favorite place to hang out on a sunny Saturday afternoon in Miami is Crandon Park. It is absolutely a must seen if you’re visiting the city. The beach is clean and not overloaded. Plus they have a large playground for the kids, and different BBQ areas.

  7. Cuatro Caminhos cafeteria is awesome. It is the best hole-in-the-wall (literally) in Miami. They call this place “La Cafeteria”, and they have some of THE BEST Cuban pastelitos I’ve ever tasted. We tried some of their guava and cheese, and they were hhmm hmmm delicious. Don’t expect fanciness or anything of the sort. Come enjoy some original food, and some good company. Don’t be shy, these people have some of the best stories you’ll hear in this part of town
