What you can expect

Begin this day by taking the route to Higüey where, in addition to touring its streets, we will visit the largest and most important church in the country, the Basilica of La Altagracia. Camera in hand, get ready to capture unbelievable panoramas and typical Dominican villages. Along the road you will see schools and famous “colmado”. Cruise across a sugar cane plantation. Go inside an artisan sugar cane mill, and watch an accurate re-enactment of a colonial-era “trapiche” (wheel grinder) .

Perhaps the best mature, ripe tobacco has been harvested in this land, befitting only the finest cigar brands in the world which use them in their manufacturing process. This tour would not be complete without learning hands on from master craftsmen, who generation after generation have hand-made the most coveted cigars.

To complete this journey, visit a local family on their home. With smiles they invite you to their farm and their coffee plantation. Also, take a moment to taste the real cacao and many exotics fruits. This cultural immersion is definitely the highlight of your vacation. During the day, enjoy one of the best Dominican foods. The comments are unanimous; we serve the best lunch in an excursion!
