Stopped here as part of a coach tour to Vinales. There is a simple bottling line, with very questionable hygiene practices, and the inevitable shop you are encouraged to purchase from. Waiting outside for the coach we encountered the most aggressive begging we had witnessed...More

A stop here was part of our tour of the western part of the country but, if we arrived at a typical time, then we found it extremely crowded. The gift shop sells various liqueurs and cigars but we decided to leave our shopping until...More

This is a very crowded and not all that exciting tourist trap. There is only one bottling line, which was not running. The liqueur wasn't bad but the guava that it was made from certainly did not suit my taste. It was by far the...More

The factory with only one bottling machine was closed, "due to Mothersday" (four days later). Nevertheless, the place was crowded with tourists and the liquor store was opened. Felt like a total tourist trap.

It's really interesting and funny to see how Cubans work. Without rush but with smile. Liqueur it's delicious and you can buy it in small shop here.

Crowded when we went. Not really worth the price. Everyone thought the liquor was the best part of the tour.

A very quick stop (10 minutes) to see a static display about the drink and a sales room for cigars (cuc$20 EA some of them). Not worth the fight around the one-way traffic system (market day) for the coach driver.
