Navigator of the Seas 1/13/2007 stops in PR
, and being frugal I love getting the best buy. Since, Bacardi Rum is produced in PR
is it cheaper there than the VI's? We have always bought our liquor and jewelry in the Virgin Islands, because it is the cheapest port we have found, plus you can bring back more liquor duty free.
I was really disappointed to read that the Bacardi tour was not of the distillery but a Museum with Rum Punch. Decided our group including my son SWM33NavyVet and 4 Red Hatters and spouses would be better off finding a really fun bar instead. (Bacardi Tour has no admission, I figured by the time we paid for transportation to get there, going to a bar would be cheaper and more fun.)
LESSON SHARED: If we buy more liquor than is allowed duty free, we declare it. I am not thrilled standing in line, but the consequences aren't worth the risk. Ron and I were able to bring in an extra bottle each with no duty charges. Per the Govt Agent -- the duty was less than the dollar amout they collected. This could of changed and they collect all taxes due, but they didn't several years ago. By not declaring the two extra bottles the Govt Agenct informed us if we were caught we could face Federal offenses.
