Puerto Rican cigars may not be as prized as their Cuban counterparts, but they’re almost as good. Don Collins (www.don-collins.com) is part of the Puerto Rico Tobacco Corporation, with a shop at c/Cristo 59 that sells some wonderful varieties, though like everything else here, they’re not cheap. The Puros Indios are dipped in rum ($17.26 each) and taste sensational, while the Lonsdale CF are cured in vanilla ($10.52). You can buy a selection box of their whole range from $29.99 for four and even tour the factory in Bayamón if you contact them in advance. You can also check out Cigar Lounge/Cigar House at c/Fortaleza 277 or El Galpón, which both stock a good selection of Puerto Rican and Dominican cigars.
