Cigars From Mexico?

ForMudForMud Aka; Quickdraw, Clayton, DelawarePosts: 2,323 ✭✭✭✭✭
My Daughter is in Mexico on vacation and is asking what I want her to bring with her. My question is, can she legally bring them back to the states? Did a quick search online and everything is a couple of years old saying you can up $100 worth.
I don't want her hassled t customs over this.

    It’s been my experience that the natives south of the border are quite prodigious when it comes to producing fake Cuban Cigars. 

    ‘Nuff said......

    Tell her to NOT buy anything unless it's from a La Casa Del Habano (LCDH) store.

    The "cuban cigars" sold at the hotels, by guys on the beach, and at carry-outs in the Caribbean are counterfeit products and not the legitimate thing.

    They may end up being smokable cigars, but they could also be nasty floor scraps/sweepings.

    I believe it is 100 cigars or $800 value.

    And as far as the $100 limit goes .... that's only for purchases made in CUBA. 

    If you're coming from a third-party country (i.e. Mexico, Dominican Republic, etc.) ..... you can bring up to 100 cigars, manufactured in any country including Cuba, valued at no more than $800 back to the U.S. every 31 days tax-free.

    Thanks, I just told her to only buy $799 worth.  :)

    And not from individuals on the beach

    She can buy at the airport duty free Habanos shop 2 boxes and will have receipt on hand. She can also get you 2 bottles of Havana Club rum. Just keep everything in the duty free bags to get past US customs.
