Casas Particulares in San Juan y San Luis (3)
The farming towns of San Juan and San Luis are not usually mentioned on guided trips to Cuba, but for those interested in the roots of Cuba’s most famous product, it is must-see. The region, known as the “Vuelta Abajo,” is located southwest of Pinar del Rio city in Cuba’s westernmost province. While the area resembles many farming communities across the island, it is here where the world’s finest cigars originate. Each year, skilled farmers make the most of the abundant rainfall and unique climate planting more than 80,000 acres of differing types of tobacco.
