Your Cigar Journey Begins Your flight will arrive in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras, where you’ll clear customs and be greeted by a member of our tour staff. From there, you’ll jump onto our cigar-friendly tour bus for the hour-plus drive to Danlf, but don’t fret – we always have a variety of fresh cigars, cold beer and\ chilled water at the ready!
Following your arrival at Rocky’s house, you’ll enjoy a pool side reception featuring an authentic homecooked dinner, the first of many meals prepared by our in-house chef. You’ll have the evening to unwind from your travels while enjoying Flor de Cana rum and a variety of fine RP cigars. The night is yours.
After a hearty breakfast, your tour bus will depart at Sam and take you on an expedition to the tobacco fields where you’ll have the chance to walk through the soft soil and feel the gummy-textured tobacco leaves. You’ll then move on to the nurseries, where the process all begins with the nurturing of tiny seedlings that you’ll be able to cup in your hand. From there, it’s off to the box factory to witness the handmade creation of every single cigar box. After lunch, you’ll spend a good amount of time touring the inner workings of the mammoth El Paraiso factory, where you’ll have the opportunity to blend your own cigar!
Today, you’ll take a road trip to Esteli, Nicaragua, and visit Rocky’s boutique factory called TaviCusa. You’ll witness all the buzzing in-house work accomplished within a diminutive showroom setting. You’ll witness the differences in production and rolling styles between the Honduran and Nicaraguan factories, yet each facility creates its own unique identity for every Rocky Patel cigar brand. Upon your return to Rocky’s house in Danlf, you’ll party the final night away as we host a Farewell Gala featuring live music, dancing, festivities, food rum, and of course, cigars!
