I know its mainly Cuban, but is there anyone else at all?
Hispanic/Latino is such a broad term that covers anyone from Latin America. Any answers?

The old timer white Cuban's of the 50's, 60's and 70's are starting to dwindle and many of their offspring have left Miami for good. Now there's mostly newer Cubans as well as a lot of South and Central Americans.

About half Cubans. They are still predominant in Westchester and Hialeah and found throughout. In addition, many Colombians and Peruvians in W. Kendall, Venezuelans in Doral, Nicaraguans and Hondurans in Little Havana (which is still more Cuban) and the Flagler area, Argentinians in NE Dade and Miami Beach, Dominicans in Allapattah, Mexicans in S. Dade, etc..

Actually Miami Dade is not mainly Cuban anymore .... you have Colombians , Venezuelans , Mexicans , Dominicans , Argentines , Nicaraguans , Puerto Ricans ... even Brazilians although technically not Hispanic they are Latins .... you will find that many Hispanic groups are very different from each other in their food , accents , dress and mannerisims ... it is not Mexican monoculture like in California , Texas or Arizona ... also you will find that many of the Hispanic /Latin groups do not like each other .. it is shocking how often you will hear Colombians and Venezuelans ragging on each other , Chileans and Argentines , dislike each other .. Brazilians and Argentines , the same .. Dominicans & Puerto Ricans the same ... and no one seems to like the Cubans very much .. it is bizarre really . You will also find many Hispanic / Latins in fact the majority that are warm , wonderful , likeable people ( yes Cubans too !! ) that will take the shirts off their backs in a heart beat to help you out and others that are loud , in your face , annoying and have third world mentalities ... pretty much the same varying degrees of people as any other ethnic group ... being a non-Hispanic white guy married to a Hispanic woman ( Cuban ) .... I have a pretty good picture and view of the situation in Miami and South Florida in general . One thing to note that makes Miami Hispanic / Latins much different than Hispanics in other parts of the country ... Hispanics in Miami and South Florida in general are more affluent , educated and yes I hate to say it "whiter" or should I say "European " than the Mexicans or Central Americans you will find in California or Texas ... thus they can be more "in your face " and high profile than the quieter , more unassuming indigenous working class Mexicans , Guatemalans and Salvadoreans in Texas and the West Coast .. many Hispanics in South Florida are all out wealthy and some what "stuck up " or elitist ... go to Key Biscayne , Coral Gables or Aventura on a week end and you will see what I mean .... again just some observations from a timid observer ....... also you will some many of these elitist Hispanics produce some of the most striking beautiful women you will see anywhere ... my wife smacks me all of the time for "accidentally" sneaking a peek when we go down there !!

In summary you have all Hispanic nationalities represented in South Florida ... from working class people in Hialeah , West Miami , Westchester ... to more middle class in Doral , Pembroke Pines and Kendall to obscenely wealthy like in Coral Gables , Pine Crest , Key Biscayne , Aventura , Bal Harbor , Weston , Palm Beach , etc , etc .

On my experience (SW Miami), mostly are Cuban, then Colombians and then Venezuelans... the most educated I must say Colombians. The worst and low cultured, Cubans...

Like Rock said you pretty much have every hispanic background represented here in Miami.
