Looking to get a real dose of Hispanic culture? Try Hialeah.
Expect to see street signs in Spanish, often with no English translation, in this fully immersive neighborhood. Hialeah is the fifth most populated city in the State of Florida and is home to the highest percentage of Cuban Americans in the United States. Hialeah’s familiar feel and central location make it a convenient place to stay in sprawling Miami-Dade County.
You’ll find ventanitas that promise hearty plates of latin cuisine at cheap prices, bodegas serving cafecito and croquettas, and a race track known as much for its flock of flamingos as it is for its rich horse-race history.
