Can anyone give me an idea of the cost of cigarettes in Belize? I am trying decide if it is cheaper to bring some for my husband from the states or to purchase there. In the Dominican Republic last year, they were about 1/2 the cost as here (for your standard american brand such as Camel) and was wondering if the same is true in Belize.

I am not a smoker........but my friends are!!

It is much cheaper here...unless someone is hooked on a particular brand and you are here for a short period buy some at the airport or live with the local brands...dirt cheap!!!! Even the the major brands are made under license in Guatemala.

What is really amusing is the radio advertising for the local brands. All of a sudden you're in the 1950s eek

Thanks for the info - sounds like local is the way to go! Russ - I am with you - nothing grosses me out more than the smell of cancer sticks. Believe me, I would LOVE for him to quit smoking but can't force him, you know. Trust me, I've tried!
