An awesome experience! Highly recommend. We did the boat tour, lunch, and cultural tour. I could eat the meal they gave us for days and never tire of the goodness.
This place is spectacular, and the process of rum making is SO delicate and intricate. The staff is warm hearted and welcoming. Roberto gave the most captivating tour on the farm, answering all the questions we could possibly come up with. The lunch is exquisite and the rum is gastronomic and beyond comparison. I highly recommend going here for the guided tour, a rum tasting and a lunch.
