    Im assuming they can't be as much as they are here in NY (min. $10.00 a pack). Just wanted to make sure I should wait until Im there to buy. Thanks!

    I can't remember, Can you get to the duty free store when coming into Mexico at the airport? I know we get them going back??? The last time we were there in 2009, they were outrageous at the resort. Not sure if we should bring them from home or hop over to Cancun's Wal-Mart after we get there?

    Marlboro lights are 38 pesos a pack in local stores downtown, probably 45 in hotel zone stores. I would guess at the hotel itself they'll be about 70 pesos.

    Current exchange rate is 11.66 pesos to the dollar. A carton of 200 at Walmart would be about $35.

    We always get ours at the duty free, right after you walk through customs, we paid $26/carton of Marlboro Lights at the end of April.

    I never paid more than 5 dollars a pack, usually they are cheaper at the walmart, liquor stores or OXXO conveniences but sometimes I would run out at the pool and buy them in the hotel lobby gift shop for about 5 bucks or sometimes the bartenders sell them.

    You buy them on your way out... Wherever your international departure is, there will be a Duty Free shop that sells alcohol, cigarettes, and gifts... And Camels were $39 a carton in April.

    Wow! How times change from this post a few years ago. A pack of 20 is now 42 pesos downtown and 70 pesos at the hotel.
