i think the limit is 200 cigarettes but you ought to experience the local flavor and buy yourself a pack of independence. much cheaper in belize than import brands.

Thanks for your response. I have not tried Independence cigarettes yet. I tried USA brand cigarettes in Jamaica and I hope Independence doesn't have that smooth, refreshing, turpentine soaked, same, stale taste. Craven A's almost killed me.

Hi Leo

I think the limit is 2 cartons - 400 cigs per adult.

You can purchase Benson and Hedges cigarettes here but they are the european type not the US type. If you smoke Benson 100's you could consider smoking the Benson lights that we have here, they are still stronger than the US but quite palatable.

Our local independence cigs sound like they have the same formula as the Jamaican ones. Although the Colonial cigs here are not too bad.

Hi Amanda,
Maybe I should just quit. On second thought, maybe I should just line my clothes with as many as I can fit and ductape the rest around my body.
I'll probably be ok with all that tobacco growing in the Honduras. If not, I will contact the local authorities to medivac some in.
