You got ?'s we got answers. Don't know you your staying, but at Tam they have a shop for a Cuban seeded Aruhiba, very smooth and you can go singles or from 2 packs in leather hand carved & painted box's( I went for a box of 30 for $125) cigars in humidor, dw has box on display. Very :cool:

There is a small cigar store by Salt & Pepper (accross the road and north from the RIO) Probably only open in evenings. Very short walk.

Neighbor boy is at our house now (in Aruba). He says his grandmother sells cigars and is setting up a store in the new mall South Beach, accross the road from Holiday Inn. Not open until end of October. If you find one you like best, she can sell full box now, but cannot sell less until her store opens.

The place we love the best is located just around the corner (right out of RUI then left at the curved intersection going towards the Old Dutch Mill) you'll find a series of small shops on the left hand side. One of these buildings, at the very end and in the front, is Aruhiba cigars. Totally fabulous and great selection. We go every year. He has a webpage, although I cannot open it right now. I did just the other day an printed off a coupon for a free cigar!

Downtown there are 2 places to buy cigars. Dominican, Honduran and mostly Cuban. There is a store in the mall and a small place in Renaissance market place. The Aruban cigars are good but last year when I was there they were the same price as the cuban cigars. If I am going to spend 10-15 bucks a cigar I prefer the Cuban. Preferably the Monte Cristo #2's.

The Salt and Pepper place and the place at the Ren are your best bets.
My brother claims the dominicans are just as good or better than
the cubans - but I don't smoke cigars and can't tell you.

It depends on your taste or preference. Dominicans are much milder where the Cubans are much more robust. It's all preference. Just because it's Cuban does not mean its better. But imho the Aruban cigars are way over priced!

You buy a hand carved & painted box of 30(Aruhiba) for $125.00, that's only $4 each? And you still have the box as a souvenir.

This place is very good. Right across from the Radisson. There is a row of small stores. Got a few for my Father-in-law, he said that they were great!

$125? What size where those cigars. Last time i looked at a box it was around $260 or something. I bought a few loose ones that were $10 per cigar. Where is the best place to buy them at the Aruhiba cigar store? Do any other places sell them?

Mark, their on the small side 5" 1/2", but they still take time to smoke & very pleasant & mild. I got mine at the Aruhiba store at the Tam. in June.

Excellent, thanks for that information. I will return in November to get a box. I have been wanting to bring a box home, none of my friends that smoke cigars every have one so it will definitely be different.
