Name: doug (Redbull)
We stayed at a casa particular in the city for 4 days in early March 2011, we enjoyed most of the local sites, but the highlight of our vacation was watching 3 baseball games, the local team won all three! Our casa owners were #1 in regards to a clean,secure room with excellent food. Rodrigo y Tania Colon 167 tel. 757556 an easy walk to their home, just around the corner from the bus station. Rodrigo can and will show you the real Cuba, just ask! Check out cubabaseball.com to see if the schedule matches your stay.

Fabricia de Tabacos Francisco Donatien
Maceo Oeste #157, Pinar del Rio, Cuba
Tel: +53 82753424
The principal attraction in town is Fábrica de Tabacos Francisco Donatién, Calle Antonio Maceo, just off the Plaza de la Independencia. Several fine brands are rolled at this renowned cigar factory.
You can walk through the timeless rolling station, where a caller reads news and short stories to keep the rollers interested. You'll also visit rooms where the final selection and grading, labeling, and boxing take place. You can buy some of the wares here, or at the well-stocked Casa del Habano across the street. The factory is open Monday through Friday from 9am to noon and 1 to 4pm, Saturday from 9am to noon. Admission is $5, and includes a guided tour that lasts around 15 to 20 minutes.
Reviews Fabricia de tabacos Francisco Donatien
You can visit the factory and get an excellent idea of the making of a good quality cigar. It’s a very interesting visit.
You see the cigar getting form from leave to a finished and controlled cigar. The first persons start with the leaves and rolling them and you see how the cigar gets form and in the end they pass the finished cigar to the people who inspect them and sort them in length, thickness and quality. These cigars end up in the factory store where you can buy them.
One remark, the Cubans who work there can smoke as much cigars as they can, but they cannot take cigars with them outside the factory. So if you decide to buy a cigar on the street, be careful and make sure that you buy the good ones.

Fabrica de Bebidas Casa Garay
Isabel Rubio Sur #189, e/ Ceferino Fernandez y Frank Pais, Pinar del Rio, Cuba
Tel: +53 82752966
The other main attraction in Pinar del Río is the Casa Garay Fábrica de Guayabitas del Pinar, Calle Isabel Rubio, 3 1/2 blocks south of Calle Martí.
This little factory produces the town's signature Guayabita del Pinar liquor. They produce two types, dulce (sweet) and seco (dry). Both are cane liquors distilled with the fruit berries of a local bush. I like the seco quite a bit. It's a good quality sipping liquor that, if you stretch your imagination, is almost brandy like. The factory is open during the same hours as Fábrica de Tabacos Francisco Donatién. Admission is $1, and usually includes a quick guided tour and a stop at the tasting room. Bottles of Guayabita are on sale for around $4.
