“awesome side-stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

Pretty neat side-stop during our carriage ride through the old town. Great ambiance, very friendly people and very interesting to see how the cigars are made. Looks easy, but requires lots of skill. Many great photo ops and excellent opportunity to learn something new.

“Interesting Tour of Mombacho Cigars”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

While wandering the streets of Granada, we happened upon this business. We were very surprised to meet the tour guide Eric, a young Canadian boy from British Columbia. (those Canucks are everywhere!!) We really enjoyed the tour, and seeing all the different stages of making a cigar. Eric was very knowledgeable about the operation. We saw about 5 groups of teams, working in pairs. We learned that the cigar rollers (torcedores) sit on the right and they are usually men. The women sit on the left and do the finer work. They were extremely quick in their work. There was a lovely pool in the back, and we stayed for a drink. It was a nice break from the hot sun. The prices of cigars seemed very reasonable. The tour only lasts about 20 minutes. Highly recommend if you have time.

“Have a Mombacho Moment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

Great Party at Casa Mombacho in January! Been there four times now and can't get enough. Great cigars, great atmosphere and an awesome tour. Not sure what the tour guide's actual name is as I heard people calling him Pedro, Eric, Enrique, Badger, Maestro, El Patron, etc. Very informative nonetheless. Highly recommend going for a smoke, rum and have your own Mombacho moment.

“Great tour, welcoming atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

We stopped in at Mombacho by chance while exploring Granada. To our surprise there is a strong Canadian and Toronto connection to Mombacho, and we were greeted by a number of Canadians from the Toronto office who were in town for the anniversary celebration of the company. The tour of the facility was informative and friendly, and we were invited to stay for a cocktail, cigar, and a swim in their swimming pool.

“Great Place for a Lazy Afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

My boyfriend LOVES good cigars so we headed to Mombacho to check it out. We were shown around the back patio where there are deep chairs and a pool you can swim in. We dipped our feet in the pool while enjoying cocktails and a perfect cigar. We even went back the next day to play some cards and relax with yet another great cigar. Eddie was our host/bartender and he was fantastic. If you are in Granada, it's a great place to stop.
