Hey all!

So in the hustle and bustle leading up to the wedding, I somehow neglected to ask the HBT'ers where's a good place in Cancun, Mexico to get a good beer?

SWMBO and I are both beer nerds. We've been drinking Dos Equis and house rum cocktails for 2 days. Time for good stuff.

Oh, and I'm smoking a dry as f**k Romeo y Julieta too. Any tips on good sticks would be welcomed too. Cheers all!

Good luck! I was there twice and it's always been the same corona, Dos equis, and Tecate. Most of the Caribbean is sadly that way. Sure would like to hear though if anyone knows a good place being I may someday in the far far future go back.

P.S.
SWMBO is out- of-cabeza wasted. She can hold her stuff, but tonight, for some reason, she is totally hammered. Anyway, cheers!

I found Victoria to be the most refreshing beer in the Yucatan.

I would say grab a pack of Cohiba cigarettes. Alas, they are Illegal for US citizens to buy even outside the US

So for legal smokes (and actual cigars for that matter ) my favorites are all Rocky Patel
Vintage 1999 smooth have Connecticut wrappers
Vintage 1990 a great medium cigar
The Edge is a full-body cigar and are very tasty

99's are my favorite

Have a great trip!

edit: (I could never find a good cigar in mexico myself BTW, I think they are just stored poorly)

Reason: edit noted

I won't go into the likelihood of prosecution etc., but to the letter of the law it is.

Reason: spelling

Just picked up a maduro Edge Battalion today. I haven't had one in about a year, but this was the first full body cigar that I really enjoyed. I had a bad one back then and haven't smoked one since. I will let this one sit in my humidor for a couple of weeks before I have it.

You can buy them outside the US, you just can't bring them back. You made it sound like you couldn't even buy them for use outside the US. Hence my "What?".
