Here at La Casa del Habano, you'll find all things Cuban - from some of the best Cuban rum in Playa to the finest Cuban cigars. Cigars are our specialty, we carry only Cuban cigars and are one of the only outlets officially certified by Habanos S.A. to carry their cigars. Our barstaff have created 8 different fresh fruit mojito's to complement your choice of Stogie, we also specialise in Hookah's and we carry over 15 different flavoured tobaccos. You don't have to be a smoker to enjoy our hospitality, our drinks are mixed by hand from fresh ingredients and we make a mean Marguerita and Piña Colada too.

Love this place. On point drinks, staff is amazing I stopped in every day to wind down and Miguel and Robert knew exactly what I wanted. They made me feel at home. I will always come back to this spot. La Casa del Habana never dissapoints. Thanks guys!

Great source for true Cuban cigars. My preferred Bolivar Belicoso from here has never disappointed me.

Awesome hookah and there's live music across the street at the French Brasserie at night. Come after dinner for a nice late night cocktail and some good strong hookah with a plethora of flavors to choose from.

Not impressed. Prices were very high. ($53 usd for a cohiba) Humidor was not well maintained in my mind and cigars did not "look" genuine based on finish etc. I was assured by cigar officianados that this place was legit, but I am still dubious. These may be real Cuban made, but not what I remember as the genuine article.... More

I am an avid cigar smoker the humidor which the cigars we in was not very big at all the prices were expensive and I could see the cigars were dry and cracked. Just my opinion it's not a place to shop.

La Casa Del Habana is the real deal for Cuban cigars in the Playa area....it's an "authorized" dealer, kinda like a authorized Rolex dealer.....make since? I always visit here for my smokes while staying in Playa Del Carmen, because I know they're authentic. This visit, employee Cesar Reyes, was awesome! He was very helpful in choosing cigars, and as other... More

Most joints have some trouble getting the hookah going just right, this guys got it perfect on the first try! They have a great selection of tobacco flavors. Excellent variety of Cuban music to enjoy with friends along with a cool drink, excellent service as well. Would definitely come back for a relaxing time right on Playa's 5th Av.

If the idea of enjoying a nice cigar while your travel mates shop, then this is the spot for you. The staff is friendly and helpful, especially Miguel, and it is a nice place to sit back, cigar in one hand, adult beverage in another and people watch.

I visited Casa del Habano with my husband and it was literally the only reason that we came to Playa del Carmen from where we were staying on the far side of Cozumel (side note, it turns out there is also one in Cozumel, which we somehow missed). Anyways, I am no expert in cigars, but my husband is very... More
