What's not included

Food & drinks
  • Visit the Santa Clara factory and see the cigar-making process, from planting and harvesting to wrapping, sorting and packing - you can even buy some homemade cigars
  • Snap a photo beside the incredible, ten-foot-tall Olmec head and hear about its origins in the square of Santiago Tuxtla
  • Take a breezy boat ride round the islands and stop near the Monkey Island of Laguna Catemaco, home to hundreds of spider monkeys

There's magic, monkeys, and the best cigars in Mexico on this fun tour to the south of Veracruz. Stand before a beautiful waterfall, visit the prestigious cigar-making capital of San Andrés Tuxtla, and take a boat trip along the river to an island of playful primates. A great day out from Veracruz including all transport.

In San Andrés Tuxtla, find out all about the town's cigar-making history on a tour of the Santa Clara factory. The different raw materials in the volcanic soil mean the tobacco grown here is some of the finest on earth, and their cigars are considered the best in Mexico!

See how they plant and harvest the tobacco, and watch how the end results are achieved. Don't forget to buy some homemade cigars for later.

Stop for a photo of the ten-foot-tall Olmec head in the square of Santiago Tuxtla, and learn about its origins. Then it's time for some monkey-spotting on a boat trip to the Monkey Island of Laguna Catemaco.

Watch the spider monkeys swinging and maybe even taking a dip in the cool lagoon. Learn about the myths, magic, and stories of voodoo that surround the island, and watch out for the Mexican Loch Ness monster. It's reported to live in the laguna waters!
