It is absolutely mind blowing to see the amount of work that goes into making a cigar. The beautiful landscapes and friendly people are truly breathtaking. Don't not pass up a chance to make this trip it is out of this world.

I have always wanted to do a cigar tour and I'm glad we chose Drew Estate Cigar Safari to be our first. From the pick up in Managua to the fabulous lunch before heading to Esteli. It was a great combination of Nicaraguan history, company charity work and an end to end cigar learning experience. The best part were the... More

Anyone who has an interest in cigars will find the experience at Cigar Safari nothing short of life changing. No matter what level of interest you have in cigars, you will find much to love, and will learn more than you ever thought you would about the country of Nicaragua.
