    Default Cigarettes

    Can anyone tell me if buying cigarettes in Jamaica is possible and if they sell kool milds. If so are they cheaper?

    Cigarettes are cheap at the airport. You are allowed 2 cartons to bring into the country of Jamaica. Smoke those then buy some on the way home. Yes they have Kools but not sure about kool milds.

    Take them with you, unless your from Canada. They are not cheaper. Can't tell you brands, here in Ohio they are around $5 a pack and there they are $7 or higher.

    they are expensive and not made in the U.S. I haven't seen kool milds. you may get some cheaper at duty free when you land. you can bring 1 carton per person with you.

    Yes, smokes are available pretty much anywhere, including at the resorts. Although, for menthol, CN only had Salem last time we were there. I do applaud your choice. when I was in my early 20s and used to smoke, Kool Milds were my go-to, and I was the only one I knew who liked them at that time.

    If you're particular about your brand, bring your own. Those sold overseas are normally a different (lower) quality then when sold in the states, Canada, and Europe. Also there is a good chance what you buy overseas is counterfeit and not even close to what you're used to smoking.

    You'll primarily find Marlboro variants and local stuff. Bring your own.

    Not sure if they sell Kools. At CTI they use to have a vending machine in the play room however cigarettes were a lot more expensive than the states. We both quit smoking several years ago so have not paid attention during our last couple of trips.

    You can buy cigarettes in Jamaica, however, they are expensive.

    My husband usually buys a carton of cigarettes duty free in the states on our way down to Jamaica that way he has enough to get thru the trip (and it is cheaper that way).

    Duty free is extremely cheap!!! ON our departure Saturday I saw 3 carton specials of Marlboro for $78 dollars!!!! That is extremely cheap for most places in the US. Now, they are not made in the states and in years past after running out of the ones I brought I purchased them off resort and there was a significantly different taste... Just my opinion though!!!
