Shopping in Havana
Be very careful when buying cigars - many are falsely labeled and are lower quality. WTR's Shari Shopper says for the best Cuban cigars go to the Partagas Cigar Factory, the Casa del Ron y Tabaco Cubana or Tienda de Tabaco El Ajibe. Wherever you're from has better shopping than Havana, but Shari says some interesting places are Clandestina, Piscolabis, Memorias Liberia and Sr. Domingo.
