Honduras: The Rocky Patel Trip
This was literally paradise. The trip began as we flew into Tegucigalpa, Honduras. A bus was waiting for us at the airport, complete with cigars and beer for the 2 1/2 hour drive to Danli where the factory and tobacco fields were. Our home during this visit was just past Danli in Paraiso.
The first day was spent sitting by the pool with endless rum, beer, and cigars available to us. Now this is a vacation. The hospitality was above and beyond. I highly recommend everyone go on the Rocky Patel Trip. Your appreciation of cigars will increase dramatically with the experience.
This video gives you a look inside what we called home. When we first arrived I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was told it would be dorm style sleeping arrangements, which made me think a giant room of bunk beds. But no- everything was very nice! There are three beds to a room, a bathroom for each, and air conditioning units in every other room, but the air flows through them all. It was perfectly cozy (not to mention the naps outside by the pool).
I’ll be releasing more videos that walk you through the process, from the seed that is planted to the cigar being placed in the box for shipment. Stay tuned on the blog for all the updates and photos also to come.
Thank you to everyone at Rocky Patel for such an amazing visit- you took care of us like a part of the family, and that will not be forgotten.
