Full description
Sample the best of Panama’s flavors on this Panama City food tour that gives you a delicious overview of the good life - a.k.a the food life - here in Panama.

You’ll begin your tour on a bold note with a look into Panama’s world-class coffee industry. Learn about coffee production from finca to cup as you sample the famous Geisha coffee, said to be both the world’s finest and most expensive coffee.

With a little buzz in your step, you’ll make our way through the beautifully restored UNESCO neighbourhood of Casco Viejo, also known as Casco Antiguo. You’ll pass by the historic Iglesia de la Merced as you sample another local treat: chocolate! Taste organic Panamanian chocolate from the Bocas del Toro province, where it is cultivated and produced by the local Ngöbe indigenous peoples.

From here, your food tour of Panama City will make a cultural and historical bob and weave through the cobblestone streets. Casco Viejo is a particularly photogenic neighbourhood, so make sure you’ve got your camera handy and ready!

Next up is a local microbrewery, where you’ll sample four of the beers currently on tap. The brewery is an open concept, which provides you with a first-hand look at how local Panamanian beer is made.

From here you’ll make your 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.

Your last stop will be a mix of old and new  - much like Casco Viejo - as you enjoy a modern cocktail made with Panama’s oldest and finest rum. As you sip your cocktail, you’ll witness the last rays of sun leaving the rooftops of the old city, and the modern downtown city skyline come to life.
