Estelí Cigar Factory





A worthwhile and interesting visit while in Estelí is to one of the hundreds of cigar factories. In the past pre-Columbian groups cultivated tobacco in Nicaragua for smoking during their ceremonial rites. This tradition still continues in our country and nowadays Estelí is the capital for a large number of cigar factories, a fast growing business in Nicaragua.

Thousands of people and mainly women are employed to roll fine high quality leaves with their delicate hands. Small and large tobacco fields are located outside the city where the leaves are dried, and then they are brought to be rolled carefully, packed in fine cedar boxes and finally exported to consumer countries. It’s a fascinating experience to visits one of these factories and learn about all the thoughtful process.
