La Flor Dominicana Cigar Factory

La Estancia, La Romana, Dominican Republic

The Basics

Even those who aren't cigar smokers will find a tour of the La Flor Dominicana Cigar Factory a fascinating excursion. Tours follow the journey of tobacco leaves through the production facilities, including the rolling, aging, and fermenting rooms, to see the cigar making process in action. Masters tastings are also offered, where travelers can interact with the producers behind the very cigars they get to smoke.

Rum and Cigars in the Dominican Republic If this slice of Caribbean paradise is known for anything, it’s cigars and rum, two products that go hand in hand. Travelers interested in these exports should start their explorations at the Rum and Tobacco Museum in Colonial City. The resort area of Puerto Plata is home to the Brugal Rum Factory, where visitors can learn more about how the sugarcane-based spirit is produced.
