    cigarettes

    How much do cigarettes cost at the hotels? Do they have a wide selection of American brands?

    they don't have much of a selection in the hotels. i'm not a smoker anymore but i vaguely remember marlboro reds and lights, winston, and kool. but the gas stations have a wider selection. best bet is to pick some up at the duty free prior to entering aruba. the cigarette dispenser at the moomba bar (in b/w marriott surf club and holiday inn on the palm beach) sells almost all brands you can think of.

    Cigarettes are around $5-$5.50 pack.

    If your thinking about buying cigarettes at duty free before arriving in Aruba, be informed that you are only allowed 1 carton per person. I traveled in Sept and a friend of mine tried to bring 2 cartons in his luggage. He was stopped, they went through his luggage and he was forced to pay 21.00 duty on the 2nd carton

    At LaCabana back in January, the honeymoon couple next door to us asked us if we knew of anyplace that sold Salem or Newport. I had no clue.

    We told them that we were going out shopping and if we saw their brand, we'd pick them up a couple of packs...............there were none to be found.

    Smile cigs

    the cigs in aruba do not taste the same as those in the us. they are much more harsh, like a european cig. the marlboro lights i smoke are made in curacau. best to stop at duty free before leaving home

    Make sure you buy your cigarettes at the duty free at the airport on your way home. They are $29.00 per carton, one carton per person. However, I did have more than 1 per person and the U.S. Customs agent just said,"thats all". I wouldnt go to far over the limit because there is a charge of about $10.00 per carton. Ten bucks more per carton is still a whole lot cheaper then what NJ takes in taxes.

    I am still smoking from my duty free marlboro purchase a few weeks ago....they are made under the authority of Phillip Morris Products S.A. in Neuchatel Switzerland.
    They not only have a harsher "taste" they seem to have "air pockets" no matter how hard you try to pack them down.
    Being from Kentucky I am sure it is a "cheap leaf" product.
    They may be duty free and cheaper but in recent years the quality has really went down hill.
    And o course the white back ground with bold black letter" SMOKING KILLS" is always a conversation piece in the US....

    But you are correct MUCH cheaper then New Jersey! I worked there earlier this year and last and was happy to pay the Kentucky price compared to the NJ price WOW!
