Was in Cuba last year and bought a 10 box of cigars which I paid cash for. Going back this March and plan on getting more cigars. Do they accept charge cards at the official cigar shops? Is there an extra fee for this? What is the limit per person for bringing back cigars to Canada? Thx in advance.

Yes as long as the CC is not American in origin. No Amex. As to how many you can buy .... That is a Canadian customs decission ... not a Cuban one.

Tobacco products
You are allowed to bring in all of the following amounts of tobacco free of duty and taxes:

•200 cigarettes;
•50 cigars or cigarillos;
•200 grams (7 ounces) of manufactured tobacco; and
•200 tobacco sticks.
You may bring in additional quantities but you will have to pay full duty and taxes on the excess amount.
