With the same passion and drive that Emilio has achieved in the music field, he has proven the same in the hospitality industry as well. In the early 90’s Emilio had the vision that Miami’s South Beach would become an international destination and purchased the Cardozo hotel on the world famous Ocean Drive. His Midas touch was immediate and visible with the success of Larios on the Beach (Miami Beach), Bongo’s Cuban Café (Downtown Disney at the Walt Disney Resort in Orlando, Fl, at the American Airlines Arena in Miami and at the Seminole Hard Rock & Casino in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida). Expanding his hospitality success north of Miami in Vero Beach Florida, the Estefans own and operate Costa d’ Este Beach Resort. His vision is making Vero Beach the next great tourist attraction. "We are creating great opportunities for people to discover this beautiful paradise.”
