Gifts to bring?

When my wife and I have traveled in the past we usually bring story books, pencils, crayons, flash cards etc., to give to the children of the natives of wherever we are traveling. I have also brought tee shirts and Red Sox hats being from Boston. Are native Costa Ricans familiar with American baseball? I enjoy seeing the smiles on faces when you give them something they do not have or cannot get. Thanks

While there are not many baseball “fans” in Costa Rica they are certainly familiar the game and would appreciate T-shirts and Baseball hats where a gift is deemed appropriate. You can get just about anything in Costa Rica, but often branded items are more expensive than in North America.

Yes some locals are familiar with baseball.

Do you have a way to channel your gifts to local schools? If you don't , let us know what hotel you are staying at , and we can locate the closest town, or a local community leader to assist you.
