I suppose I'm not allowed to bring Cuban cigars back into the US?
No, you are not allowed to bring any Cuban cigars back into the US.
Technically, US citizens are not allowed to consume Cuban cigars or products, even while abroad.
Although a couple of cigars with the bands removed in your coat pocket or checked luggage will probably go unnoticed.
Also try the Jamón
- dry-cured Spanish ham
Similar to Italian Prosciutto, but the Spanish do a far better job.
Couple of different grades.
The best of the best is Jamón Ibérico de bellota
Special type of pig that is raised free range and feed with acorns,
then cured for 3-4 years.
You will see others labeled Jamón Ibérico, which is also very good,
but they are grain feed. De Bellota (acorns) is the best.
You will also find Serrano Jamón which is good for sandwiches.
Definitely try to sample some Jamón Ibérico de bellota.
Stuff is pricey at around $50-100 lb for the Ibérico, but worth it.
Serrano is cheap, $10-15 lb.
Mojama is $30-70 lb depending on the cut and grade.
As for fishing, they still commerically fish with cane poles in the Med for tunas.
Would be allot of fun to get on a boat for a day or two if possible.
