During your visit to Los Cabos, don’t miss out on the chance to smoke a genuine Cuban cigar. Cuban cigars are without a doubt the most prestigious you can find. They have an aroma and mildness that has earned them the title of best cigars in the world. The right term for cigars made in Havana, Cuba is “Habanos.”
Los Cabos Hand Rolled Cigars
Connoisseurs of Cuban cigars know that buying them from legitimate merchants or having them hand-rolled by skilled tobacco leaf rollers in Los Cabos is the next best thing to going to Cuba to buy them.
Los Cabos cigar rollers create some of the most exquisite cigars available, using the finest tobacco leaves and cigar rolling tools to create a variety of styles, flavors, sizes, and colors. While they’re working on your cigar, they can tell you everything you need to know about the plant and, more essentially, the art of cigar rolling.
A rolling board or table, chaveta “knife,” guillotine, quality press, and vegetable glue are the instruments used for this hand rolling method. The instruments used by many cigar rollers today are the same as they have always been. For them, it’s more about tradition than technology
A bonchero, the local term for “buncher,” is a Cabo cigar rolling expert who specializes in putting together the binder and filler leaves (or bunch) in a cigar. They may hand roll an entire bundle of cigars for you to take back to your hotel, or they can put together the perfect cigar while you wait.
You may buy Cohiba cigars, Romeo y Julieta cigars, Montecristo cigars, Partagas cigars, Bolivar cigars, and other internationally famous brands of authentic Cuban cigars with confidence at Los Cabos.
Hand Rolled vs Machine Made Cigar
Because there are only two types of cigars – hand-rolled and machine-made – categorizing them by their manufacturing process is the easiest.
For beginners and connoisseurs alike, hand-rolled cigars are the favored option. Preservatives and chemicals may be present in machine-produced cigars, whereas hand-rolled cigars are created entirely of tobacco. In hand-rolled cigars, the filler, as well as the binder that holds the filler and the outer wrapper, are all constructed entirely of tobacco leaves.
Cigar tobacco is grown in a variety of locations around the world, but the best tobacco comes from Cuba, Mexico, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, and Honduras. In general, hand-rolled cigar tobacco tastes better than machine-made cigar tobacco.
Los Cabos’ Fight Against Fake Cuban Cigars
At one time, both buyers and sellers of Havana cigars suspected that a large percentage of Cuban cigars for sale in Mexico are fakes. What they discovered is that the number might be as high as 90%. Los Cabos cigar sellers’ loyalty to their customers prompted them to launch a campaign against counterfeit Habanos in 1996.
The first step they took was to teach their customers how to tell the difference between an authentic Habano and a fake, all in the hopes of establishing product quality recognition in an area where there was no knowledge about the genuine deal on Habanos. It was a shame to see how easily people were duped into buying “genuine Havana” cigars from so-called “trusted sellers” during those early times in Los Cabos.

Cigar Tips for Travelers
Rules for Dining and Cigar Smoking
The majority of dining spots in Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo are cigar-friendly. Many of them have open architecture, with roofs made of palapas and no walls or windows. They will gladly let you smoke a cigar whenever you want. Even the most traditionally constructed restaurants you’ll visit may accommodate cigar smoking.
Taking Your Cigars Back Home
We do not recommend that you carry your Cubans home with you, as you may assume. Your cigars will be confiscated if you are searched (which is a solid bet these days). Some people remove the Cuban cigar bands before passing through. It’s your choice, but you’re still at risk of being detained.
