Cigars from Costa Rica

When Christopher Columbus landed as the first European on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica in 1502 and suggested the name Costa Rica y Castillo de Oro for the newly discovered land, he had the dream of one day discovering an Eldorado with gold and precious stones in the Abounded. But he was wrong. Because what he and all the other conquerors did not see, or could not see, was the immense wealth of the flora and fauna prevailing there, as well as the breathtaking beauty of this small Central American country.

Almost 500 years later, Costa Rica has at least partially developed into the prosperous country that Columbus had dreamed of. The political stability that has prevailed in Costa Rica for decades, which is atypical for Central American countries, is unique. Only a few people know that there is a decent cigar industry in this Central American "Munsterländle". Perhaps also because Costa Rican tobaccos, despite their high quality, are often only used in bulk as binders and wrappers for tobacco products from other cigar countries.

In the specialist literature one can often read that there is still no flourishing cigar production in Costa Rica, since it is not worthwhile to rely on cigar production totalmente a mano due to the relative prosperity and the correspondingly higher wages. However, there are now some manufacturers that produce handcrafted cigars on a smaller scale and thus operate in the narrow premium segment. The market share of Costa Rican Puros is relatively small, as tobacco from other growing countries is often used for parts of the filler mixture and mainly binder and wrapper leaves are made from Costa Rican leaves.
