The Dominican Republic is known as the land of some of the finest cigars
So it`s natural to include a cigar lounge in any tour. Not to mention that bachelor parties always feature the guys holding cigars, if only for the photo op. Sosua has cigar shops in El Batey, though not all are really equipped with dedicated humidor rooms and a genuine cigar selection of original brands of both the DR and Cuba. For our customers we will feature what we consider the top choices when it comes to cigar lounges: Vivonté in Puerto Plata and Cubano Café in Sosua.
The first one offers a high end lounge with affordable brands, including a full bar and large screen TVs to watch games and events. Their selection features several Dominican brands at all levels, including Maduro, Suave, Andullo and Mediano – to fit various tastes. Their location includes a walk-in humidor, outdoor terrace, and a second level factory showroom where tours are provided including cigar rolling demos. Located at #5 Jose Del Carmen Ariza Street, Puerto Plata.
Our second feature is Cubano Café in Sosua, one of the oldest and most respected cigar stores in town. Founded in the mid 1990`s by two Cuban friends, it soon became a landmark in Sosua with its North American style restaurant and Café. Its cigar collection evolved into local and international brands such as Davidoff, Macanudo, Fuentes, Cohiba, Pride, Leon Jimenez, Romeo & Julieta and many more known to most aficionados.
The humidor at Cubanos is totally walkable, and the Café includes a covered terrace and complete bar. Recently, a cigar lounge was added and the store expanded. Those with expensive taste will find all major brands here, so expect a higher price tag. Cubanos is located at #12 Pedro Clisante Street in El Batey, Sosua.
