I would highly recommend the tour! It was very helpful and we purchased cigars to take home!

Early Morning and afternoon and the beginning of a new week. Laughter and voices mix simultaneously, a perfect match for the festive ambiance. Dominoes smack against several tables, the clatter rising into a melody.
Maximo Gomez Park, better known as the Domino Park, is like many other Miami places, a convergence of different identities. It is here, in Little Havana, in the space on the corner of Southwest Eighth Street and 15th Avenue — just steps away from the Tower Theater — that locals have played Dominoes for decades. Now tourists insist on bearing witness to the game in which camaraderie and rivalry intertwine.Silence gives way to concentration. Dominoes and laughter, like castanets, interrupt the truce and signal that the game has started on the table under one of the gazebos. Truly n experience you won't forget.
MDC's Tower Theater, is one of Miami's oldest cultural landmarks. When it opened in December 1926, it was the finest state-of-the-art theater in the South. It is located on SW Eighth Street and Fifteenth Avenue in Miami, Florida. During the late fifties and throughout the sixties, large numbers of Cuban refugees fled to Miami. The area surrounding S.W. Eighth Street - "Calle Ocho" - became a place of new beginnings. For many Cuban families, films at MDC's Tower Theater were an introduction to American culture in addition to pure entertainment. Soon MDC's Tower Theater altered its programming to include English-language films with Spanish subtitles, and eventually Spanish-language films. It is still operating after 93 years.
The failed Bay of Pigs invasion made Castro increasingly wary of further US intervention and more open to Soviet suggestions of placing nuclear weapons on Cuba to ensure its security. A year and a half after the invasion he pursued closer relations with the Soviet Union, partly for protection, which helped pave the way for the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962.
Accompanying note: "In the heart of metropolitan Miami is a city within a city known as 'Little Havana.' Over five-hundred thousand Cuban-Americans have settled in the Miami area since the first large exodus of 1959." We visit the bay Of Pigs Memorial with a short history lesson from a Cuban Expert Tour Guide.
Iconic nightclub from the 1930s-1950s reemerges as a live-music venue with Cuban-style food & drink. We visit with a pass by and finish here for those who want to stay after the tour is over with discounts and specials.
