Our Geo Quiz is definitely not exactly kid-friendly this time � it's about cigars. The best cigars come from Cuba. At least that's what cigar aficionados say. But it's been illegal to import Cuban cigars to the US since the 1960′s. Browse your local tobacco shop, and you'll spot cigars from a lot of other countries. We want you to name two of the most popular with cigar lovers.

One is the largest country in Central America. The other is the second largest country in the Caribbean, after Cuba. They're both located just south of the sunny Tropic of Cancer. That's 23 degrees north of the equator, where the sun shines strong and the tobacco grows nicely.

So, can you name the two nations?
Geo Answer:

US Customs authorities in Chicago recently seized a record number of illegally imported Cuban cigars. So, which countries provide American smokers with high quality, legal cigars? The answers are many, but two of the most popular cigar producers are the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. That's according to journalist and cigar aficionado James Suckling who speaks with anchor Lisa Mullins about the recent �cigar crackdown�.
