    If by some chance you will be near the Puerto Plata area, you can call Colin, aka The Cigar Man.

    His # is 809-449-1819 and he will deliver to you.

    The cheaper cigars that I found in Santiago are in Mercado Modelo, Calle Del Sol.. near calle Duarte.. but if you want all kinds and more expensive Supermercado Nacional have varieties, forms and different shapes of boxes..

    Default Costco Ny

    Last year I bought about $100 US worth of cigars at several places in Santiago. When I got back to NY I saw the same exact cigars in COSTCO, CHEAPER.

    Go with Principes that go for RD10-15 each here and tell them you paid US7 for them. I promise you they will not know the difference!

    In fact, after introducing the Principe to a good friend of mine who has smoked many expensive cigars hear in the DR he is trying to figure out how to export them(no easy feat).

    If he decides to export to the US he better be certain that the new tax structure for cigars does not become law.

    come talk to me.

    Truth said I know more about cigars than most.

    1) You cannot buy many brands that people "think" you can find easily.
    2) You can get excellent cigars at decent prices.

    You are certainly limited as to how many you can take back.

    Default 53% Tax on Cigars

    The US Senate passed childrens health care legislation yesterday by a "veto proof" margin. It is partially funded by an increase in taxes on cigars. The Increase is from the .05 cents per cigar to 53% of the value at the time it enters the states.
