ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Botanica Viejo Lazaro, Miami, FloridaAlong Calle Ocho at 17th Avenue, the smell of incense wafts out of one botánica. From the outside, it looks like any other store. But step inside and the tiny, cramped shop might well contain a whole world, like a Jorge Luis Borges story.In the center of the shop, smaller than many Miami gardens, is an altar to Babalu Ayé, known as San Lazaro to Catholics, with his purple mantle and crutches. Thousands of Cubans make a pilgrimage every Dec. 17 to his church in Havana to give thanks or beg favors from the protector of the infirm.San Lazaro is a favorite of Miami botánicas and holds the place of honor in the the M&N Variedades Store, owned by José Zevallos and named after his sons Mickey and Nick.Duration: 15 minutesStop At: Agustin Gainza Arts and Tavern, Miami, FloridaAgustin Gainza Arts and Tavern is widely known as Taberna del Pintor.

Step outside Domino Park and you’ll see the pink marble stars of the Calle Ocho Walk of Fame, which honors more than two dozen Latin stars, who have left an indelible mark – if not on Little Havana itself, then at the very least on the people who claim this stretch of Miami as their own. Boxer Roberto Duran is here. So is radio personality Martha Flores, and “Cuban Oprah” Cristina Saralegui. Gloria Estefan, obviously. Of course, no pilgrimage to Little Havana would be complete without a stop at the star honoring the legendary Queen of Salsa, Celia Cruz. Be Ready to take lots of memorable pictures you can only get on this tour.Stop At: Calle Ocho, Miami, Florida La Casa de los Trucos (loosely translated to “House of Costumes”) which has catered to the suspiciously elaborate masquerading needs of Miamians for four decades, 12 months out of the year.
