Traveling to Belize

Visiting Belize (flying in to capitol and then traveling past Corozal City) next week and wanted to know if anyone has any recommendations on places on can pick up cigars. My understanding is that there is a duty free shop in the airport which may or may not have smokes. I am packing my travel humidor but was looking for a decent local shop. Any suggestions?

Never been but quickly found this shop: Barrier Reef Drive (Front Street)
San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye, Belize
Tuesday thru Saturday, 11-6

I live in Belize, and the only source of "the real deal" is on Ambergris Caye. Lots of fakes everywhere else. RASS were $9.50 recently...more reasonable than Mexico.

Thanks. Looking forward to flying over to San Pedro and seeing what they have. There is a Rum, Tobacco & Coffee place that is open 7 days a week and has a humidor.

I found two places on San Pedro - one on Middle Street near the Ice Factory and bought two Cohibas that on closer inspection looked like (and tasted like) fakes. The native Belize brand ($11 a stick) was mediocre. There was another shop on Barrier Reef but I did not purchase any there. Prices seemed high. Non existent selection of other cigars and glad that I had packed my own for the trip down.
