Cuban cigars in Mexico?

Can you buy Cuban cigars in Mexico (possibly at duty free in Cancun)? What is the duty free store like in Cancun - good selection?

No. Not really. Good selection of great cigars many places though. Here's a recent thread, though there are many about this subject...

I would trust that airport and this site

Save your money and buy better cigars. Cubans have taken a back seat to DR's and Nics for years. Check the reviews in any Cigar Aficienado. Not to mention the fact that 99.1% of all "Cubans" in this region are fakes. Import duties/taxes into Mexico make the few authentics no bargain at all.

I'm sure we'll find other things to spend our money on in Mexico. I hear the tequila is pretty good!

We're quite familiar with Cuban cigars, our preference, and have bought hundreds over the years

Other than the Airport, these may be better / authentic places

La Casa Del Habanos on 5th ave between 32& 34
