It was exciting to see how they make cigars. We got our own guided tour. A nice elderly man rolled the cigars. We bought someone with us home. Very nice and good people who worked there.

Good place to go if you want to learn a about cigars production and tabacco. For 2 CUC per person they show you how cogrars are rolled and explain stages of tabacco growth. Kind and knowledgable guide.

Fascinating view of the heart of the primary tobacco growing region in western Cuba. Although Alejandro Robaina passed away a few years ago, his nephew continues to entertain guests at his home/ranch to learn about the tobacco growing process.
