Sample the best of Panama’s flavours on this Panama City food tour that gives you a delicious overview of the good life (aka the food life) here in Panama.
We begin our tour on a bold note with a look into Panama’s world-class coffee industry. Learn about coffee production from finca to cup from a local farmer and roaster, and sample the famous Geisha coffee, now regarded as both the world’s finest and most expensive coffee.
With a little buzz in our step, we’ll make our way through the beautifully restored UNESCO neighbourhood of Casco Viejo (also known as Casco Antiguo). We’ll pass by the historic Arco Chato (Flat Arch), before stopping at a gourmet Panamanian food shop for another local treat – chocolate! Sample organic Panamanian chocolate from the Bocas del Toro province, where it is cultivated and produced by the local Ngöbe indigenous peoples.
From here, our food tour of Panama City will make a cultural and historical bob and weave through the central plaza for a photo op at the picturesque main cathedral as well an exclusive pass by the Presidential Palace. Casco Viejo is a particularly photogenic neighbourhood, so now is not the time to have forgotten your camera!
Next up is a local microbrewery, where we’ll sample four of the beers currently on tap. The brewery is an open concept, which provides us with a first-hand look at how local Panamanian beer is made.
From here we’ll make our way along the Malecón (the city’s picturesque sea wall), to a local Seafood Market to taste Panama’s national dish, ceviche. A delicate concoction of the freshest seafood, marinated until cooked in a mixture the citric lime juices, onion, and cilantro. It’s a delicious dish, one you might even need to return for.
Our last stop will be a mix of old and new (much like Casco Viejo), as we enjoy a modern cocktail made with Panama’s oldest and finest rum. As we sip our cocktail, we’ll witness the last rays of sun leaving the rooftops of the old city, and the modern downtown city skyline come to life.
