Possibility to buy rum and cofee at the farm.

- TOBACCO PLANTATION WITH ITS FARM AND FIELDS:
Once you get to the heart of the tobacco plantation, you can meet the Martinez family, who will be happy to explain to you from the tobacco harvest to the final assembly of the cigar, with a demonstration! You will have the opportunity to taste a traditional cigar and if you wish, buy the famous Cuban cigars or honey !
Other things to note
Our excursions are available with or without experience. Just let yourself be rocked by the horse's steps and everything will be fine!

Where you'll be

You will be able to familiarize yourself with the valley. If the excursion lasts six hours, you will not always be on the horses, we make sure to take regular breaks.
Each place has its own specificity, which is the richness of this excursion. Far from the valley’s tourist sites , we suggest you to meet the producers directly at the farm in order to immerse yourself in the valley’s atmosphere and to be able to exchange with its craftsmen.

Nous avons passé une très belle journée lors de cette excursion à la rencontre d'agriculteurs. Chacun a pris vraiment du temps pour échanger avec nous sur leur métier mais aussi tout simplement pour un partage sur nos vies respectives. Omar et la Finca Martinez sont exceptionnels et très attachants. Nous avons adoré. La balade à cheval avec Samuel et le jeune Javiere était très sympa et au calme. Pas d'autres touristes durant la balade. Nosu avons profité pleinement de la nature environnante. Nous n'avions jamais fait de cheval et il n'y a aucun problème pour la balade. Merci pour ce beau moment.

Superbe expérience! Samuel et Noémie (française) nous ont fait vivre une super journée. Totalement unique vous pouvez réserver les yeux fermés. Rien à voir avec les expériences proposées dans la rue. Samuel a même sauvé mon genou attaqué par une tique !
