Cuban Cigar Prices?

Recommended Posts

Buy all the custom rolls from Alex, Yolanda, and Reynaldo you can, but also go to the Partagas factory LCDH and see if they have some Sir Winston's and if you find some Talisman's buy all you can.  Everything else you can buy here when you get back.

VERY IMPORTANT: be sure to get factura's for each purchase, particularly the custom rolls.  Worry about Cuban customs but don't worry about U. S. customs.  If you have a handful of factura's, you should be okay going through Cuban customs.  But don't be surprised if they confiscate some of your purchases. Just the risk you take.  Smile a lot, be very friendly without saying much.  They will not be friendly, but if you give them an excuse (factura's) to pass you through, they will most of the time.  Overwhelm them with factura's if you can.  Spread out your purchases between your checked luggage and your wife's luggage (if traveling together). 

Hire Jorge to drive you around La Habana. 

Freeze everything you buy on the island when you get home before putting them in your humidor.  Search here for instructions. 

Good luck and good hunting. 

Oh yeah, buy a Hotel Nacional ashtray or two if you have room to bring them back.  Have a smoke and Cuba Libre on the veranda.
