    USA usd currency exchange in Cuba

    I had the card from stonegate out of Arkansas and when I ask limit no matter what the limit was only $700 which would do me no good plus it was a debit card. There credit card I hear works better but I havent heard anything else about this. So I cancelled my card. If you need to exchange USD for CUC I can get you a better rate than the .87 to the 1.00 the currency exchange spots do in Havana. Just hit me up!

    I have access to a few boxes at 1250 euro UAO 17 Box Code. They are Diplomatic boxes I'm being told. Never have seen a box like this. Nice looking cigars.

  7. I believe it's just a scare tactic and a way to get more intoyou belonging to look at your stuff without needing a warrant or anything. All tobacco will smell the same or to close for the dog to know its illegal.. Lol. Also I just bought a bunch of stuff which criminal organization does my money go too? Can I choose?... Lmao

    Cigar band rings

    @El Presidente I have met John De Costa on many occasions while in Havana. I just failed to get his info when I needed it. Great guy I first met him at Partagas festival then 3 times after that. I actually met him just two weeks ago. Thanks for info I will tell him FOH referred me as well. Thanks guys. Robert
  10. Hello FOH'ers I know traveling to Cuba with usd currency is cheap as you lose money from the 3% exchange fee and the 10% USA penalty. I have found a new way to get your bang for your buck while there and may help other countries currency as well. I just recently sent my driver/friend that lives in Cuba a money transfer via Western Union and found out that WU charges very small fee plus you get USD $0.97 cents to the usd dollar compared to the $0.87 cent per dollar after penalty and exchange fee. Just an fyi Robert Rogers

    If you are looking to hire a driver in Havana

    If anyone is looking for a great driver that will pick up at airport or port and is a great guy please let me know. There has been several on here and friends that have used his services. He speaks Spanish and English and retired from Habanas s.a. In Cuba and moved to Canada for Habanas s.a. as well. He knows everyone in Cuba that has anything to do with Cigars which makes it very nice. He's reasonably priced and most of the time he will get you custom cigars free to smoke at the shops. He's precise and always on time. Great guys just let me know if your interested and I will give you his info. The pictures are of my fulltime driver/friend..Arturo is his name. Cheers, Robert Rogers
  12. Hello my friends I have a question. I'm interested in buying a gold or silver cigar band ring. Not sure where to find these at and well.. I got fat hand/fingers got fat so my wedding band doesn't fit anymore and I ask wife if that would be a good wedding band.... 😂 she said yes so I'm trying to find someone that makes them. Thanks.

    la Puntilla update

    Very nice Robert. Love this version vitola as I smoke this vitola on a regular basis. I typically go to Havana on average every 10-14 days per month. Love the island and have made many friends there. I've actually hooked up some FOHers with my driver when they travel there. Have you figured out the price on these sticks and do you just pick up while in Havana or will you have available in FOH? 7k is a lot for 1 roller each month especially with their repeat customer, will you be having more shops rolling these or are you just trying to stick with one main roller? PS I've spoke to La Marca bout getting some ink done. I will be in Havana Feb 11-13 Feb 22-25 and Feb 27-Mar 2 for the festival. Will be getting with La Marca this coming trip. Thanks brother and cheers mate. Robert Rogers
