Go here for the experience to see how a cigar is made quick in the shop. Don’t buy. Don’t believe the hotel will take you here and bring you back quick. Chocolate shop is ok and nice service and price not bad for vanilla extract...More

A visit to this shop was offered by the hotel we stayed in, they took us there by bus. When you first go in, it's a little cigar museum, they demonstrate how they make cigars as well as sell them. Next is a big shopping...More

Not really a mall. Just a bunch of stalls in a wArehouse type building. A cigar maker, T-shirt’s, a few snacks, booze. All over priced. Saw a shotgun toting man outside the front door, what’s up with that?

Would not recommend. Over priced. Long wait to return back to hotel. They herd the customers in the store but don’t want to interrupt their schedule by dropping tourist off at hotel. It’s a one way ticket to a very LONG day! Hotel prices were...More

Don't bother coming here! There's no experience, no fun, nothing to do! This place is a real tourist trap with extremely overpriced products. As there's no easy access to a real Downtown, they try to steal you! That's how I felt. Me and my husband...More
