Does anyone know where I can find Cohibas in either Zihuatanejo or Ixtapa other the duty free shop at the airport?

"Tequila Por Favor" with shops in the second block of Cuauhtémoc street from the main plaza in Zihuatanejo as well as in "La Puerta" shopping center in Ixtapa is a good place for buying quality Cohibas. "La Perla" restaurant on La Ropa is another.

Thank you. FYI. It is now legal to bring $100 worth of Cuban cigars back to the US but they still can't be sold here. $100 should buy about 2-3 Cohibas per person.

100 Pesos, or 100 US$?

Frostbite,
$100 US is the limit on bringing Cuban goods, including cigars, back into the US. The average box price for ONE Cohiba is about $30 US. It is a iconic cigar, considered the very best by many cigar aficionados. They still cannot be sold in the US for some reason.

Your previous post refers to $100.00 for 2 to 3 Cohibas. This post refers to 2 to 3 BOXES of Cohibas for $100.00, which makes more sense. How many cigars in a box? Not that I'm in the market; I quit smoking a long time ago, just curious.

The following prices are from Canadian Cigar Company. As stated by the on line site "All prices are US funds".

A box of 25 Cuhiba Robustos is $838.63. A box of 25 Cohiba Esplendidos is $1294.14. A single Cohiba Espiendidos is #64.71.

Now you see why I am looking for a better price in Mexico.

And I quit smoking when cigarettes reached $20.00 a carton!

never smoked. I used to say I would rather drink beer out of a ashtray than kiss a girl that smoked cigs. Lots of tooth brushing.

Never smoked cigs either. Just have a cigar now and then.

Hola
I have been going to Cuba for some time and have always bought my cigars through the black market. Never paid more than $40 USD for a box of 25 Cohibas. Same stuff they sell for big bucks in the stores. They come with all the necessary stamps and seals. Don't think I am ripping anyone off by buying through the black market.
PS Will be back in Zihua on Thursday for the winter.

I suspect we all look for better prices in Mexico. My dental work is 1/3 of the cost in Zihua vs. what's charged here in Montana; almost pays for the airline ticket. Kahlua, which we like to pour over icecream, is substantially cheaper down there, etc., etc.

A taste for cigars is completely subjective, just like a taste for Scotch or Tequila.

Hope you find what you are looking for.

Thanks, but I quit smoking a long time ago. I was just curious about prices.
