Koncept Events custom “Cuban Heritage Tour”
This week is NATIONAL TRAVEL AND TOURISM WEEK, and as we celebrate our industry, KE wanted to highlight one of our most popular DMC service tours in the most historical neighborhood in Miami. The “Cuban Heritage Tour” in Little Havana.
True to this community’s namesake, Little Havana is a slice of an authentic Cuban experience and it is where much of Miami’s history and culture began after the 1959 revolution in Cuba. A visit to this neighborhood will allow you to sip a traditional Cuban cortadito (make sure you partake at 3:05 – the official Miami cafecito time) while you dance to the bongos and smoke a freshly rolled cigar. You may also take home an authentic guayabera (Cuban shirt) from the oldest shop in Miami or pop into one of the area galleries overflowing with art created by locals. *For more images from this tour experience visit WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/KONCEPTEVENTS.
WITH SPECULATION OF LATE CIRCULATING AROUND THE FRAGILE STATE OF THIS COMMUNITY due to urban development, it appears some very official moves are being made by the LOCAL GOVERNMENT and the GREATER MIAMI CONVENTIONS AND VISITORS BUREAU to ensure the lasting state of this charming landmark. Recently Little Havana celebrated the ribbon cutting of its official LITTLE HAVANA VISITOR’S CENTER.

The fight to maintain this neighborhood’s history has merit and we have a feeling you’ll leave this unique tour understanding exactly why!
