Default Where to purchase cigars?

I am planning to smoke one cigar (OK, maybe two) while on the cruise. I would prefer a decent Cuban cigar (or similar). However, I do have a concern of purchasing what I believe is a Cuban and finding out that it is not.

Any suggestions on where to purchase?
We are cruising to Nassau, St Thomas, and St Martin.

Thank you
Kevin

Don't bother, they say its Cuban & its not. It's just another wrapper on the cigar. Lots of people have complained on many of the islands that they were sold fake cubans.

The islands get away with it because the tourists don't know what a real cuban is.

Stick with what you know.

In Philipsburg St M there is a store on the street beside the old court house. When I was there in Sept 05 it had legit Cuban cigars. It was called the Lucky Too Gift shop. Nice guy was running it also. I can e-mail you a picture with it in the background.

Read here for a info on fake cubans.

Or you could seek out the Cuban Govt outlet stores. The prices are a little inflated but you wont have to worry about it being fake.

Generally the big name cigars like the Cohiba, R&J, and Punch are the most widely counterfitted.

Expect to pay anywhere from $12-$25 for a real Cuban.
