Finding Halloween costumes in Marbella can be a bit daunting. So summer came to an end, back to school came and went, then I realized...Halloween is right around the corner. I've been asking my kids for weeks what they want to dress up as for Halloween and I only got an answer from one of them today. So now the hunt is on...where in the world do I find Halloween costumes in Marbella...
Do not despair there are many places to get Halloween costumes but sometimes you have to get a bit creative. Here is a helpful list of places we have had success finding Halloween costumes...
CHINESE BAZAAR - A virtual treasure trove of everything under the sun. The shops are EVERYWHERE up and down the coast. There are a bit like Starbucks...you may not love it, but when you need it, you're really happy it is there. They have loads of Halloween costumes, accessories, wigs and decorations at very low prices.
EL CORTE INGLES - There is a massive Halloween section at El Corte Ingles on the top floor by the housewares section. You can find pretty much everything you could possibly need there. Not exactly the cheapest place to find Halloween costumes in Marbella...but there is a good selection.

PARTY LAND - There's quite a good selection of costumes, decorations, candy and cake decorations etc. at the party shop upstairs in La Cañada and now one in Puerto Banus too! They do a superb job at their shop windows!

PEPITA CARDIÑA - in San Pedro. It is located just off the pedestrian area on calle Lagasca 32 and there is another shop just up the block (same street, but on the corner of Lagasca and San Antonio) at 34. One is more of a flamenco shop while the other has more costumes. Go as early as you can, because the shop gets extremely packed towards the 31st and costumes are just flying off the shelves.
SAN PEDRO OR PUERTO BANUS STREET MARKET- This is a great place where I have browsed the stalls and come up with my own costume with even a few pieces that I can keep to wear later on.

AGROJARDIN - This is a garden center in Estepona, but they also have been filling their stock of Halloween decorations more and more each passing year. I think they have only Halloween decorations...no costumes. Agrojardin is located off the N340 at km 164. If you are driving from Marbella it will take you about 10-15 minutes to get there. Look out for the large billboards directing you to the exit.
