Ollie is here to help give you the inside track.

Cigars are perhaps Cuba’s most famous export. Tobacco is grown among the limestone karsts of Viñales, where farmers use the same time-tested methods they’ve honed for centuries.

The best way to get to know Cuban cigars is to spend a day exploring the region with a private guide. You will start on an underground river, exploring the lesser-seen side of Viñales and learning about what it is that makes the tobacco grown in this region so highly revered. After a traditional Cuban lunch overlooking the valley you will set off on your walking tour. Your guide, a native of the valley, will take you into the heart of the lush plantations, explaining the history of tobacco growing as you walk. You'll end your day learning about the lifecycle of a cigar, from seedling to drying, before rolling your very own.
