    Where to find Cuban Cigars in Aruba?

    Where is the best place to get them and how much do they cost?

    I don't even smoke(anymore) but want to smoke one because I can.

    There is a small cigar shop in the area of Arawak Gardens, if i recall correctly it is just off the main road, across the street from Salt and Pepper. I have bought Cubans there.

    I found a location for CHEAP Cuban Cigars. It's called Benlo Cigars in Arawek Garden. It's near by the Sopranos Restaurant.

    They have full size Cubans for $5-$7 and mini Cuban Cigars for 2 for $3.

    As I just posted on another thread the "Prohibited and Restricted Items" to bring into the US, out of curiosity I checked on the Cuban's cigar.

    And look, what I found! WOW! Nothing "cheap" about that anymore. Kind of unbelievable! But I would most definitely NOT take the risk!

    Cuban-made Products

    There is a total ban on the importation into the United States of Cuban-origin cigars and other Cuban-origin tobacco products. This prohibition extends to such products acquired in Cuba, irrespective of whether a traveler is licensed by Office of Foreign Asset Controls (OFAC) to engage in Cuba travel-related transactions, and to such products acquired in third countries by any U.S. Traveler, including purchases at duty-free shops. Contrary to what many people may believe, it is illegal for travelers to bring into the United States Cuban cigars acquired in third countries, such as Canada, United Kingdom, or Mexico.


    Importation of Cuban-origin cigars and other Cuban-origin tobacco products is prohibited whether the goods are purchased by the importer or given to the importer as a gift. Similarly, the import ban extends to Cuban-origin cigars and other Cuban-origin tobacco products offered for sale over the Internet or through a catalog.



    It is also illegal for U.S. persons to buy, sell, trade, or otherwise engage in transactions involving illegally-imported Cuban cigars. The penalties for doing so include, in addition to confiscation of the cigars, civil fines of up to $55,000 per violation and in appropriate cases, criminal prosecution which may result in higher fines and/or imprisonment.


    These prohibitions are applicable to all goods of Cuban origin and are an important element of the comprehensive program of economic sanctions against the Cuban Government which have been in place since 1963. Those sanctions have had the support of the last seven Administrations.

    The U.S. Treasury Department, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), administers the embargo of Cuba. Suspected embargo violations may be reported telephonically to OFAC Enforcement Division at (202) 622-2430 or via facsimile at (202) 622-1657.
