Barack Obama is helping your Caribbean travels be especially lit. If you’re traveling abroad, you can now bring home just about all the Cuban cigars and rum you’d like. 

Reports USA Today:

The Obama administration announced Friday a new round of executive actions designed to increase trade and travel with the communist island. And this is the one many Americans have been waiting for — no more restrictions on the island’s famed rum and cigars.

Under the new rules, travelers can purchase unlimited quantities of Cuban rum and cigars in any country where they are sold so long as they are for personal consumption. Sorry American couch potatoes: You can’t order Cuban rum and cigars online and have them shipped to your home.

Back in January 2015, the Obama administration began allowing Americans traveling to Cuba to bring back up to $100 in rum and cigars in their carry-ons.

Now, that $100 cap is a wrap, within reason. The order goes into effect on Monday, Oct. 17.
