Luggage and bags: Try to save room in your bags for extra boxes of Cigars.
Check out your local customs rules and see if you can abuse them. Cigars, especially Cohibas, can be resold in Canada to the US buyers for an amount which would easily pay for two trips to Cuba.

I brought back 4 boxes and got caught not claiming the extra two at the Canadian border.
All they did was charge me $40 after they asked me what they were worth.
Ya ok...lets see...hmmmm...my $350 cigars are worth...
ah I mean my $40 cigars.

Talk about western crap...here is micro management at its best in a Democracy. Lets spend millions of dollars on scanning equipment and catch people with some extra cigars.
