The boutique is housed in French designer Hélène Breebaart’s home, who lived in Panama for 40 years and previously worked for Christian Dior. Breebaart Boutique combines modern styles with beautiful fabrics and clothing created by Kuna people – indigenous people in Panama. If you’re looking to bring home something non-commercial, but luxury with a high-end feel, then a visit to Breebaart Boutique is a must!

Calle 5a Este, Casto Viejo, Panama (mapwebsite)

In the center of Casco Viejo is Caso Antiguo Square, a group of market vendors selling souvenirs, jewelries, hats, clothing that you can bring home as gifts. This was one of our favorite places to shop since we found many items for ourselves and for our loved ones. Talk to the vendors, you can bargain a little!
