I found that specific brands such as Marlboros could be difficult if not impossible to buy,at times. They also were expensive, more than twice the Belize brands, easily. (10 dollars rings a bell - per pack at the last bar with Marlboros on the island!) When the island runs out of Marlboros, there are no more until the next boat! Cigars are easy to find, as are local ciggs. Oh Yeah - cigs can burn much faster than normal with that wonderful constant carribean breeze! Belize it!
