I had a very professional tour and were pleasant surprised. The surroundings are beautiful but it is unfortunately to far away from the center part of Granada. It was perfect when it was located on the Calzada and I certainly understand why you moved but it is simply not a pleasant part to walk late.

I am not the most expert cigar aficionado, but I've enjoyed around 300 of numerous varieties in the last year. Since tastes vary wildly, you might want to know that my favorites are Diesel, Alec Bradley and Oliva blends that come from Nicaragua. Of the cigars I've sampled in Granada this last week, Mombacho is number one, Doña Elba comes... More

Claudio gave an enthusiastic review of the process of cigar making (all by hand) as well as the restoration of the colonial house in which everything happens. So interesting! Bring your camera if you go. The view from the rooftop is amazing. We just walked in and he accommodated us right there and then.

I really liked the atmosphere in the factory. It is fantastic to see the cigars being made but I have no idea why they call themselves shopping/fashion? It is a factory making very good quality of cigars. No shopping or fashion here:-). All in all a wonderful tour, the only menus is that you need to walk quite a bit... More

I’ve been smoking cigars since I was a very young 19-year old U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant in Vietnam (1967-68). They are small individually handcrafted works of art --- the poor man’s Mona Lisa as it were. Cigars are in no way similar to a cigarettes --- the cigarette is a quick nicotine hit, a fine cigar is a treat for... More

On our 2 week vacation to Nicaragua we kind of stumbled across Mombacho Cigars as we wondered around Granada. Granada is like Antigua Guatemala, cleaner, the buildings are amazing. 3 blocks from the Central Park in Granada we came across this Yellow Building. The new home we are told of Mombacho Cigars. The building itself is worth the stop alone.... More

We just happened to be passing this beautiful old colonial building and popped our heads in for a quick look. Wow! We were given a great welcome and shown round the wonderful building, which was a fascinating insight into the making of cigars. Daniel was exceptionally helpful and friendly, as well as speaking great English, and his passion and knowledge... More

Hi Julie, Thank you very much for your comments, it was a pleasure to meet you! Thank you for complementing my English, I´d be rather concerned if I wasn´t able to be understood given that I´m British myself (from Gibraltar)! Hope you had a great time in Nicaragua and thank you for dropping by Mombacho Cigars! Regards, Daniel More

Being a non smoker visited the local factory to get a friend a few cigars, it was very interesting how the staff set out and roll the local tobacco, the tour it really informative and to see the cigars completed manually is even more of an education. The staff are totally committed and Daniel was really helpful indicating what I... More

Our family took a tour of Mombacho Cigars in late November. The guide was informative and we enjoyed watching the workers roll the cigars. The highlight was have someone help us attempt to roll our own. While our daughter was a bit impatient with part of the tour, she enjoyed watching the cigar rolling. None of us are smokers, but...
