This was an interesting tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the sugar industry in Cuba. While not now a working factory, the machines are still there. We took a steam engine ride to get to the tour.

Interesting place to visit. You can see how they make sugars from the cane as well as the history of slavery. Must seen if you are going to county tour.

Unfortunately the hurricane destroyed all the interpretive signs around this old sugar factory and steam engine graveyard. SO you need a guide (or a mechanical engineer) to help you understand the machinery. Definitely worth a visit though.

Rode with the engineer Santiago in the locomotive with 5 others from my group. He let me pull the cord and toot the horn before crossings. What fun!

Not worth the time for the sugar cane trip. It is not even a farm, just a museum with some abandoned machines, and the clerk spend time explaining how things work. No hands on demonstration.
