When traveling to the Caribbean on your next vacation, be sure to stop by any of the three exclusive Cigar Emporium cigar shops in the Netherlands Antilles; namely on the islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao, or as they are also known, the ABC islands. Whether you are there on a cruise or a stay-over vacation, the ABC islands never disappoint. With endless days of sunshine and amazing beaches, the ABC islands also offer very well stocked humidors at the exclusive Cigar Emporium stores.

Make sure you ask for the exquisite “La Gloria Cubana Paraiso”, the regional edition cigar only available in the Caribbean (Exclusivo Caribe). It was originally part of the 2014 Regional Edition program, but was not released until 2015. It is an Edmundo size cigar, 5 1/3 (135mm) x 52 inch ring gauge, limited to 4,000 boxes of 25 cigars. Cigar Emporium is one of the few locations where these are still available.

While in Aruba, ask for Monica, the very experienced Cigar Sommelier who will show you around the fully stocked humidor, the largest of the three locations. Also, if you are in Aruba on any given Friday, make sure to stop by their famous Happy Hour between 5:00pm – 7:00pm for great prices on selected cigars, in addition to live Cuban music, coffee and rum tastings for everyone visiting from near and far. They also ship worldwide, so give them a call or send them an email to any of the addresses below. But please, be aware that the Caribbean is a heaven for Cuban counterfeit cigars, so only purchase your cigars at an authorized retailer.
