Discover the natural wonders that lie below the earth’s surface and watch master artisans hand-roll premium cigars. The Cave of Wonders is named for both its spectacular geological formations and the hundreds of native Taino Indian paintings that adorn the rock walls. The Tainos are the indigenous people that occupied this area long before Christopher Columbus arrived. Their cave paintings and engravings have been preserved in near-perfect condition, which presents a snapshot of life centuries ago. You will witness a different sort of creativity at the Tabacalera La Vega Fina factory, where artisans hand-roll cigars from a blend of aged tobaccos. It is a fascinating process to watch, as it takes years to master the art of constructing the cigar’s different layers for the ideal taste, aroma and mouthfeel. Made with tobacco leaves that have been aged at least three years, La Vega Fina cigars are medium-bodied cigars that appeal to a wide audience.
