La Carreta was especially popular in the Sugar Plantations in Cuba as a way to transport the sugar cane across the plantations. Today’s La Carreta: The first La Carreta was founded in Little Havana’s famous Calle Ocho in 1976. After Cuba’s political take-over of 1959, a large and growing number of Cubans in exile moved to Miami in search of a community akin to that of their homeland.
