Visit to Cigar Factory

This January we will be staying at the Melia Caribe, and would love to visit a cigar factory. Can anyone tell me where to go and how far the factory is from the resort? Can we go by taxi? Would the resort happen to have an excursion you can book that visits a cigar factory? Any info is appreciated.

The new Don Lucas Cigar Showroom (& other deluxe items) is about 3 miles from the Melia Caribe (you pass it on the way from the airport on the left) and the taxi will be comp of Don Lucas

Yes you're right - and they have a Cuban selection too - even if you can't take them home you can have a few while on vacation

Oh - forbidden fruit!

BB: Will Don Lucas also send for free taxi to/from Bahia Principe?

Also both BB and Gregg: If you get a free taxi care of a cigar shop, should you tip the driver anyway?
