Dominican cigars are also some of the finest rolled anywhere. You will find a lot of vendors that sell cigars in their stores, on the beach or on the streets.

The best come from the area around the growing fields in Villa Gonzales to the historical town of Tamboril outside of Santiago.

Stay away from the duty free cigars, they are expensive their genuinity can be suspect.
Remember: a good cigar is not cheap.
