HAVANA, Cuba (CNN) -- This month, Art of Life is in Cuba, a country brimming with character. We explore the riches of the country which, behind the crumbling facades, lie in the spirit of its people.

Pinar Del Rio

Cuba's economy is fueled in part by its cigar industry, and -- as with everything here -- the state plays a large role. We traveled to the western province of Pinar Del Rio to see where productions begins. (Watch Art of Life's visit to Pinar Del Rio's tobacco fields)

Origins of a cigar

The life of Cuba's world-famous cigars begins in the agricultural areas a few hours outside of the capital. Back here in the capital, Havana, the cigars are hand-rolled. We went inside the Cohiba factory to see how it's done. (Watch Monita learn to hand roll a cigar)

Character of Havana

Life in Havana isn't focused on material wealth. Most Cubans don't earn -- or have -- a lot of money, but what they do have in abundance is an amazing energy. And they know how to have fun. (Watch Monita learn to salsa, Cuban-style)
