  1. Hello FOH! Last year I visited Cuba for the first time and spent my time smoking amazing cigars after reading countless posts from the best places and cuban cigars to try. I loved it so much I went again last year in November. I had made plans to attend the 2021 Festival del Habano XXIII which is supposedly taking place in February. Then Corona hit, and I have not been able to read anywhere if it is still going to happen on February 20-27. Does anyone know the status of the festival? Is it happening?
  2. I had this same question regarding the receipt for the ones already in my checked luggage or do I need receipts for the ones in my carry on too?
  3. Im going with my Dad. He visited Cuba during the 1990's and has wanted to visit Cuba again for many years. Finally going but this time with me. He loves cigars as well and is what I would considera as a "cool dad", he usually goes out with me and my friends to places so its like another friend pretty lol. Interesting on the regular production aspect. I cant say I've had any limited production cigars lately that I can remember. What would be good Cohibas or Montecristo that are not "regular production cigars" that I can buy in La Habana vs some regular production cigars I can buy? Im really interested in buying 1-5 old classic aged cigars from the 1950-1980 Cohiba or Montecristo. Is there any of them available on LCDH or is this almost impossible to buy a cigar that old and aged?
  4. Sorry! Just made the introduction on the newbie forum! Thanks for the heads ups. Also, I've read that Cuba travel subforum but haven't found some of the information im looking for like recommendations on contacting Alex or is it better to just go to Hotel Comodoro once im in La Habana. Sorry about taking up space with the questions!
  5. Hello! Im Eric from Florida! Have been a newbie on cigars for about 2 years but always learning. I don't know how I had not stumbled upon this website before. Its amazing! Still figuring out everything. Im a young Doctor specializing in Florida on periodontics (think implants and mouth and gum related surgeries). My interests run around from boating, cigars, scotch whiskey, rum and a few others. I found this website looking around for suggestions on my first trip to Cuba on March 5, 2019. Looking forward to learning a lot more from you guys, the forum and live!
  6. Hello FOH, Recently discovered your website and forums and have been enjoying all of the information you guys bring on so many different topics! Going to La Habana, Cuba next Tuesday March 5, 2019. Staying right there in La Habana for a whole week. Im interested in a few things while im in Cuba: good cigars, good rum and good places. Starting with my main interest, CIGARS! I've been reading on here and have concluded I want to visit Alejandro "Alex"Gonzalez Arias at the Hotel Comodoro for some custom rolled cigars, probably his canonazo or his Behike 52. Do I have to order before hand, how could I come in contact with him in these days before my trip? Or can I just go to Hotel Comodoro the day I get to La Habana and just make an order of some cigars on that day? Im open to other suggestions of custom rolled cigar makers around La Habana but have read the review and believe Alex is good and his cigars more around my feel. Also, I want to buy some real COHIBA in Cuba. Mi gf brought me a box of 25 Cohiba SIglo VI last November and once she came from Cuba and I inspected the box and the cigar it was obvious they were FAKE. She paid $140 por the box in one of the "Cooperativas" and it was obviously a scam because they are not legit real Cohibas. Is there really "cooperativas" that sell real cohiba cigars for cheaper prices than LCDH? Ive heard there is but don't really know. Where in La Habana could I buy real Cohibas for a reasonable price if not in LCDH? Im fairly new to the scene so sorry for the questions. Regarding places to go out night, enjoy some rum and good music and people. Any suggestions in close proximity to Hotel Nacional or any other area in La Habana worth visiting during the nights to have fun? Thanks for any suggestions and any replies! Will post on my experiences after I come back from CUBA!
