The La Aurora Factory was absolutely incredible. It's a complete tour of the factory...the tour guide smokes a cigar about the length of his forearm... It's an hour long tour and by the end he is about halfway through lol. They show you all the steps in processing, aging and rolling the tobacco. Watching premium cigars being hand made was quite an experience...paired with an amazing staff, this is something you don't want to miss! Thank you!

This was an absolute eye opener for me. As a lover of the leaf, I had never really put much thought into what it really took to get my favorite cigar to me. I now own my own cigar store and get many customers that enter my humidor and inevitably ask "why's this cigar so expensive"? Well I'm here to tell you, it's an absolute miracle they're not $50 or more! The art,craftsmanship and love that goes into making that wonderful piece of time and enjoyment we're so enamored with is incredible. If you get the opportunity to visit La Aurora you'll understand.

The most amazing cigar factory you will ever see! History does not do justice to want you will encounter and witness when visiting La Aurora. There is an art to producing hand made cigars and you can see it done right before your eyes.

I've paid a lot more money for cruise ship excursions that didn't measure up to this, and it was free. Better yet, it was a truly enjoyable experience. La Aurora has a great operation going here, and they produce a great product, and Eugenio Polanco does a great tour.
DON'T MISS IT!
