If we learned anything from reading The Polar Express, a simple train ride can take you on an adventure that you will never forget. But what if instead of traveling to the frozen North Pole, you were heading deep into smoking-hot vintage Miami-Cuban culture? And, instead of sipping the sweet flavor of hot cocoa, you were enjoying a rum cocktail? Luckily for Sunshine Staters, there will be a boozy rum train in Miami Florida that can take you on that exact journey this spring.

The Havana Special Rum Train Excursion departs from Miami Central Station and takes you on a 2.5-hour experience that will make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time to Cuba’s Golden Age. 

When you step aboard the train, get ready to “sip back” and relax. Each guest is greeted with a totally delicious rum cocktail that will help you sink into the rhythm of the night. As the evening goes on, you’ll have the chance to sip three different Cuban-style rums produced by local distilleries.

The drinks aren’t the only treat meant to get you in the mood for a real Havana night. Onboard, live Cuban tunes will immerse you in the vibe of the culture that ranges from the old-school Caribbean flair to modern Latin American fusions.*

Close your eyes, soak up the sounds, and taste the flavor of good-quality rum while tapping your toes to some tunes. You may just feel 21st century Miami disappear for a moment.

The train dress code is cocktail attire, so this is the time to bust out your cutest outfit or that little black dress.

Also, keep in mind that this is an event for people of drinking age, so guests under the age of 21 will not be welcome aboard the booze train.

The experience is available for select dates in April and May, so try to book your tickets quickly!

Prices range from $99 to $125 dollars, depending on if you snag the early bird tickets, which are available before March 14th.

Whether you are a rum specialist or just a soul trying to drink in a totally new kind of atmosphere, this is a boozy Cuban adventure that you won’t want to miss.
