This is a very short educational tour where a guide explains the history and brief overview of how the rum is made. There is a short video. You end with a tasting. Tours are offered in English and Spanish. Great for a quick tour.

This isn't a grand tour of a huge plant. It is very quaint and low key, but if you're interested in history you'll find this an informative and different way to spend an hour or so. The staff were really friendly and keen to share...More
