Duty free at Punta Cana Airport on Arrivals

Not sure if it has been mentioned in here already, I would jus like to let everyone know that there is indeed a duty free shop selling cigarettes, spirits, etc. in the arrival terminal, just after baggage reclaim. Not sure how much cigarettes cost in North America, but if you are coming from the UK, definitely get your cigarettes once you arrive at Punta Cana, Marlboro menthol lights were 30 dollars for 200, definitely cheaper than back home, at £39.

Hope this helps!

Compared to most of the US, that would also be considered quite a bargain.

Great news! I never would have thought to look for Duty Free on arrival! We will certainly stop in. Any idea how much a bottle of Kahlua would go for? We usually pick some at Duty Free up on the way out of Toronto, but maybe it would be cheaper in PC upon arrival?

Jenny,

I made the mistake of getting my cigarettes here in the uk before my flight out, that's why I thought I would mentioned in here that there is actually a duty free shop on arrivals. I only quickly walked past it, so no idea how much specific items cost. Sorry, maybe someone heading there soon can tell you, but by the look of it, it doesn't look as big as the one on departure.

Thanks Boia! If anybody that's arriving in the near future could take a peak at liquor prices/brands, that would be awesome!

I'm fairly certain they don't carry Canadian Cigs, but if someone could verify that as well, it would be much appreciated!

I would really appreciate knowing if there are some decent wine options upon arrival as I understand the wine at the Ambar - even the types you can purchase - are poor at best.

Thanks for any info...

Great news!! Saves me wandering into town looking for cigs. Cheaper too.

Duty free on arrival is becoming more popular in many destinations now.
