Cigar factory – 2 hours

This tour runs on weekdays, 8 am to 12 am and 1.30 pm to 4 pm.


We meet at SONATI and take the public transport or taxi to the “Santiago Factory”, one of the biggest cigar factories in Estelí. We will see the whole cigar making process from drying and fermentation to sorting and preparation for rolling to the actual rolling of the cigars and the finishing process. If you want, you can try to roll a cigar by yourself. The workers will show you how to do it.

Of course, we will have to test the quality of the finished product. We finish with a visit to the shop where you can purchase some cigars for your own or family and friends. After about 2 hours we will be back at the hostel.
