Gifts:

For children you can find assorted toys (balls, sand toys, water guns, plastic toys, barbies, cars, pens, crayons, markers, paper, etc.) in most of the grocery stores (or “chinos” as the locals call them – which means “Chinese-Owned”).

You will also find some small little clothing, etc. stores that have a few toys and children’s clothing along the main and side streets.

There are a few craft and artisan stores that have nice wood carving & jewelry as well.

For adults birthdays you can also find nice things at the artisan and craft stores and numerous spas that you could purchase a gift certificate from.  You can see a list of spas here and stores here.

One store even had pinatas if you want the party to be extra special!

Parties:

Many of the restaurants are accommodating and if you wanted to plan a special party you can organize ahead of time.  To see a great list of restaurants click here.

Be sure to communicate your needs well and check back several hours PRIOR to your party time to be sure that everything is as you had intended.  In Panama things move at a much slower pace and as a result you may have to wait a bit longer than you may have hoped to have everything completed.

If you are staying at Red Frog Beach you can arrange for a private chef to cook dinner in your villa for you!  They provide a nice menu to choose from and have a mix of local specialties.

There are numerous bars in Bocas del Toro as well for an after dinner party!
