If you enjoy cigars you must visit this place. We learned the entire process to making a great cigar. They have a store at the end with pretty decent prices.

I booked a tour for a Tuesday when our ship was in port. We took a cab to the location and we were not allowed past the front gates by the guards. They told us it was only a distribution warehouse.
