Blvd. Kukulkan kilometer 11.5 and 12.7 is a 1.2 kilometer distance, or 8/10's of a mile. You should be able to do that.

Not so much any more!

Depends on what you get. If you get all Cohibas and Trinidads and EL's, then the answer would be easily "yes". Also, the larger cigars like DC's and Churchills are going to be pretty close to that figure as well. But you can find smaller cigars such as PC's and TPC's for $10 or less. Also some of the lesser known brands like Fonseca, St.Luis Rey, etc. as well as MM's will be more reasonably priced (this is IF you are looking for a relative bargain).

And no matter what you're told while down there...stick to the LCDH ONLY. There is one in Playa del Carmen as well if you find yourself down that way.


Better beautiful than perfect

I thought it was cheaper than aruba.

Only buy at the LCDH, even though there are some other "legit looking" shops

p.s. the bus is about $0.60 if don't like the walk!

I'm going to Cancun in a few months. I got the address of the LCDH, but in this age of google maps, I want to see it on a map before stumbling around trying to find it myself. I'm sure the hotel I stay at will help me too, but can someone provide a mapped location of the LCDH in Cancun? Thanks.

I was just at the LCDH in Cancun last week. I agree with what everyone has said -- it is a great place, I wouldn't be able to say enough good things.

I've seen a lot people talk about David who works at the shop. He wasn't there, but I worked with Cesar. He was a great guy.

As far as prices, here is what I remember -- Monte #2-$22.00, PSD4, RASS, HDM Epi #2, BRC were all around $15.00. Didn't check out the Trinis, but Cohibas were seemed to be pretty steep (e.g., coro was about $27.00 and I think Siglo VI was $36.00).

If any one has any experience dealing with the LCDH Cancun, can you shoot me an email. Thanks.

Do you find that the cigars in the Cancun LCDH are in a condition ready to be smoked right away or do they need time to settle?

Avid, JD, thanks for the feedback. You make me want to go even more, maybe not for the box buys since I don't want the hassle at customs, but nevertheless, I'll definitely enjoy my time in "candyland" and smoke a few in the shop or on the beach.

I bought a decent amount of stuff and the guy gave me a small discount but nothing major. I really didn't try and haggle much after that. So yes you can probably haggle (even more than I did), but I don't know what it will get you.

To answer bburn's question, the cigars that I bought and smoked, smoked very well. Certainly they could have used some rest, but they were enjoyable right after I bought them.

Also, could someone let me know by email if they have dealt with LCDH in the past? Thanks.
