Full description
Start your tour by learning how long it takes a tobacco plant to become a beautiful handmade cigar. After you enter the factory your tour guide will show you all the different types of wrappers and binders from all over the region that are used to make Vegafina premium handmade cigars. Discover the story behind how the Dominican Republic came to be known as "Cigar Country", and why nearly all of the world's premium cigars are made here. Follow the journey of the cigar making process where you can see the staff hard at work, bunching, rolling, and finally the packaging facility. VegaFina takes its name from the "vegas finas", or fine plains, where sunshine, moisture and soil composition combine perfectly to allow the growth of the most exclusive tobacco leaves.  Finish the tour with a visit to the cigar megastore where you will find the most premium VegaFina Cigars as well as other world-renowned brands.

I would have expected a lot more for 25€! You had to shine a flashlight so you could see something because there was a power outage. The museum was 20m long and a woman rolled cigars and she didn't want to show how she does it and then the factory was already finished. Next to it was a shop where you could buy cigars, but it was dark here too...
