    Cave Of Wonders And Cigar Factory

    Catalina Island, Dominican Republic

    Duration 5 1/2 hrs

    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.

Their cave paintings and engravings have been preserved in near-perfect condition, which presents a snapshot of life centuries ago.

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.
