The best Cuban cigars

Many when they travel to Cuba, they wonder which one to choose when buying the best Cuban cigars, either to buy one for the souvenir or on behalf of a friend or acquaintance.
To be able to export them you should know that the limit in customs is two boxes of cigars per person (50 cigars) without proof of purchase for many countries. But if you bought them in an official store, you can carry more boxes showing the purchase certificate.
In Cuba, you can buy Cuban cigars in official stores or on the street. In fact, our recommendation is that you buy it in the store as it is a guarantee that all are of quality and are equally cheaper than in other countries. In addition, you can buy more than 2 boxes with the certificate of purchase that is the maximum allowed by customs. But if you like it and you don't have the purchasing power to buy a box, you better ask the owner of the private house. They will find you good cigars at reasonable prices and by recommendation. The seller will always tell you that family or friends of his work in the cigar factory, but they will most likely leave clandestine factories and will only take out the seals and wedges from the factories. It does not mean that it is of worse quality, there are very good cigars.
