Popped in after dinner....girlfriend and I had a hankering for a good cigar. After a long education (of two cigar novices) Rogelio proved to us that he not only knows his cigars but is willing and patient to teach. Loved the conversation and overall experience.

The excellent selection here of both Cuban and Mexican cigar products. The staff is wonderful as well. The prices are not cheap, but fairly priced considering this is a tourist location.

I'm not a cigar aficionado, but grabbing a cuban and walking the Malecon is a really uniquely Vallartan experience. The staff is always nice, often speaks english, and now their new location gives you a bit more wiggle room.

Hand rolled cigars, friendly service! Can't wait for the tasting lounge to open! Next trip. We made a random stop, looking for a mild cigar. Haven't tried it yet, but will update my post later.
