    Default POP Duty Free

    Is there much choice of duty free cigarettes and spirits in POP airport? I'm after Benson and Hedges cigs for a neighbour back home. Found some in supermarket in Sosua but they cost 1,700 pesos for 200, seems a bit expensive. Any advice?

    Check out super super in sosua, or janets in Cabarete. The duty free in POP is ridiculously expensive. Marlboro is 50% more expensive in the airport than it is in the local stores

    This is spot on. You will pay more than double what you would pay anywhere else in the DR if you buy at the Duty Free. See our own Eddy in Super Super before you leave and save big.

    Duty FREE is a real scam when you can buy in a supermercadao.

    I was in Samana recently and bout Macoris 8 year old rum for $7.55 a bottle and in the Duty FREE it was $20US

    Head down P.C. away from the beach, about 1/4 mile down from downtown on your left in Banco Progresso plaza.

    if you are at pedro clisante... and you have cafe cubano on your right... continue straight, pass the crossing, and continue for another 200 yards towards Banco Santa Cruz... you will see Super Super on your left side.
