Little Havana’s most evocative reminder of Cuba is Máximo Gómez Park (‘Domino Park’), where the sound of elderly men trash-talking over games of dominoes is harmonized with the quick clack-clack of slapping tiles – though the tourists taking photos all the while does take away from the authenticity of the place somewhat. The heavy cigar smell and a sunrise-bright mural of the 1994 Summit of the Americas add to the atmosphere.
