Tabacalera Del Oriente - Other Activity Tarapoto - Peru

The Tabacalera del Oriente is a paradise for cigar smokers. For non-smokers, the “factory” provides a fascinating insight into the cigar manufacturing process. Every cigar is hand-rolled by a highly skilled group of about 35 women; watching them at work is a mesmerizing experience. The storerooms are packed with cigars of all shapes and sizes, some created for the Peruvian market, while others are for export to Europe and the United States. The premium hand-rolled cigars can be bought on-site for extremely reasonable prices. Arrive early in the morning if you want to watch the women working.
