cigarettes last winter 180 pesos per pack of Benson & Hedges. There is not the variety of brands you find in the states.

Hi , last year we were paying 180 pesos, for a carton of smokes, and booze, shop around there are lots of difference from one shop to the next with these prices., Just to let you know, the prices are cheaper the further you travel away from PV.

cheers

Sorry my peso conversion was a little off - I paid about $1.80 for a pack of cigarettes in Bucerias and in all the Tecate Six stores in PV. Some of the other smaller places charged $1.90 or a bit more.

Tequila is all over the map -- depending on the brand.

Marlboro, Marlboro Lights, L&M, Viceroy all cost between $1.50 and 1.80 a pack.

Hi Mike,

When we used to smoke, we would purchase a couple of cartons of cigarettes at the duty free shop before we left the states, it was REALLY cheap and then we would have plenty of smokes for our trip....the cigarettes we purchased in Mexico seemed different than the ones from the US, we didn't care for them (not saying they are different, just seemed that way to us).

Tequila is not really inexpensive in PV, seems to be pretty close to what we pay in LA most places. If you are staying around the south side of town, we usually buy ours at Rizos Supermarket, their prices seem fair for all kinds of booze and they have some high end stuff there :)

Hope you enjoy your trip.....

Best prices for Tequila will be found in the La Playa chain of liquor stores.
