Growing Latino Culture in the Miami City


Glamor condensed in an Urban form is the most palpable thing about Miami; they are not wrong. The city has so many things, from the beautiful orange line of fire that the sun puts over the skyline or mystifying beauty that has been set on the streets of Florida. Miami has been the center of everyone’s fascination. Miami is widely touted as the capital of the America and the heart of the new world, with the ever-cheerful Caribbean being in its back yard and the hub of all spicy foods; South America over the horizon; Miami certainly has always earned the title of being the outward- looking cities in the United States of America.

As a result, the city tends to be affected as much as by events that are overseas as those occur on its doorsteps. Cubans fleeing Castro, Venezuelans dodging Chavez, and Brazilians escaping economic woes have all helped make Miami the most diverse Latin American city on the planet. Miami is also widely known as the ‘Magic City that’s the place where all magic comes true.

The most bilingual city:
More than 6O percent of the Miami population speak predominantly Spanish. Cubans are the largest and the oldest Latino community in Miami, and Little Havana is the best the place to get the taste of the city’s Spanish-speaking soul if the only language you mastered is English. Due to that, Miami was the first city in America to have a public bilingual education issue in the sixties, which result in an ‘English only’ movement.

Hang out and enjoy the food:
Calle Ocho is the main thoroughfare where you can enjoy a cup of Cuban espresso, a good cigar, and plenty of Latin American art galleries. The Bay of Pigs monument pays tribute to the 2506th Brigade, which turns out to make an unsuccessful effort in the sixties to overthrow the Castro’s regime in the Cuba. Calle Ocho also hosts a festival each year, known as Calle Ocho festival, where you can get the real taste of the Cuban-American spirit.

A peaceful and fun time:
Maximo Gomez Park, better known as the Domino Park is the most evocative reminder of old Cuba, where local gents catch up over a leisurely game of Chess or Cards. Whether you are dining out or listening to live music, strolling the streets or sipping a chilled drink, the city’s Latin energy is palpable and everywhere.
