Always stop in for a cigar and beer when in PV. This is he closest experience you will get to being in a cigar shop in Havana. Great cigar selection, warm and helpful staff, and nice space. Lum, the shop host, is great help and makes the experience comfortable and unpretentious for those who are not familiar with Habanos and a cigar house. Overall a must stop for a cigar lover.

My bpyfriend is a cigar lover and we spent 2 hours here. The owner ad his wife are great! Lume helped my boyfriend find a large selection and then we were able to sit and enjoy a drink and cigar in the "man cave" We will visit this place again, even planning on coming back for the 20th anniversary in January 2018

If you have any concerns over finding authentic Cuban cigars while in Puerto Vallarta, then this is the place to go. Gerry, the owner, is a recognized and published expert on Cuban cigars. He can assist you with your selections and provide you with technical detail as well as relate first-hand experience with anything in the humidor. His lovely wife really does all the work. Gerry is there to smoke fine cubans, drink gourmet coffee, and visit with patrons in the lounge. He is a character and a half with stories that include celebrities and political figures spanning many years. His shop was easy to find, but (at the time of this review) he doesn't open till noon and he isn't open on Sundays. Plan a visit into your next trip.

I just spent 9 days in PV and on about 6 of them, I had the distinct pleasure of sharing some great cigars, great cuban rum and great stories with Gerry (the owner) at La Casa del Habano in PV. I cannot highly enough recommend this business. Gerry is a walking, talking encyclopedia about all things cigars, and has smoked and broken bread with just about every significant figure in the industry. This leads to some great discussions over a stick or two (and may a drink or two). This is a must visit place!

Very knowledgeable and kind staff.
Reasonable price with some willingness to negotiate for quantity/cash.
Accessory selection and some liquor.
Full smoking lounge experience.


A bit hard to find as the old location still has signage up thus it took me a second to figure out they moved.

Overall: Best selection and overall experience for Cuban cigars in PV (I have tried 5).
