  1. great post! as an avid cigar smoker my friends are always asking me to get them Cubans while I travel, though that will change soon hopefully.
    Anyways, buying Cubans in mexico are generally fake, however, I am glad you mentioned La Casa Habano. Its an international chain. I describe it as a Mexican version of Tinder Box for those in the states. Otherwise, just buy non Cubans.

    Las Casa Habano is one of my favorite places to buy cigars when I’m in Playa Del Carmen. I just stay away from Cubans, I find Dominican or Mexican cigars much better.

    Morgan’s Tobacco Shop 5a Avenida Norte, Esquina Calle 6, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico sells fake Cuban’s. Just purchased two boxes and when opened found poorly made fakes with Tabaco beetle holes. I can send you pictures… I’m posting them to other sites to inform others before they get ripped off to.

      Hi TK,

      Check out my new blog post about your fakes, in my opinion the bands are a dead giveaway of them being counterfeits. Thank you for sharing your photos, the more people share their experiences the more educated consumers will be.

  7. In the market, so many peoples are selling fake cigars of big brands just putting the same name. We have to check before buying the cigar by opening it. Although, nice post and amazing point to think about.
