This is my home away from home in Aruba. Monica is always helpful and welcoming to all customers and the selection is the best. I enjoy my time here with coffee and a beautiful Cuban cigar very much.

They are 100% authentic. There are many videos on fake ones you can educate yourself on before you visit. They are by far the best Cuban Cigar shop I have been to. Thank you and enjoy.
