Fodor's Review

Santa Rosa is one of Honduras's two tobacco-growing regions—Danlí, east of Tegucigalpa is the other. Cigar making still plays a big role in the local economy, and nearly everyone seems to be hard at work rolling them. Some prefer the strong Don Melo or the smoother Santa Rosa, but the pride of the area is the Zino, made by Flor de Copán. A seductively sweet odor engulfs you as you enter the factory. You can watch workers piling tobacco leaves into pilones (bales).

The factory offers informal tours in Spanish, weekdays at 10 and 2. A shop just west of Parque Central at Calle Real Centenario 168 sells Flor de Copán's products.
