Know More about this tour

Meet your local guide and fellow culinary explorers at Caf Unido Coffee Roasters, where youll begin your Panama City food and drinks tour with a tasting of high-end coffee. Sip a sample made from Geisha beans some of Panamas best (and one of the worlds most expensive) and learn about the countrys coffee industry from a local coffee farmer and roaster.

Now that youre a bit caffeinated, move on to your next stop, a gourmet food shop that specializes in rich Panamanian chocolate. On your way there, enjoy your walk through the World Heritage-listed Casco Viejo district (also known as Casco Antiguo), passing by historical landmarks like the Arco Chato (Flat Arch).

When you arrive at the food shop, sample a piece of organic chocolate from the Bocas del Toro province, where the chocolate is produced by the Ngbe, an indigenous group. Then take another walk through Casco Viejo toward your next destination, stopping along the way for photo ops of the stunning Metropolitan Cathedral and white-washed Presidential Palace (Palacio de las Garzas).

Next up is a local microbrewery, where you can enjoy a tasting of four beers whichever are on tap that day. Take a look at the brewery facilities to see how the local beer is made, and learn a bit about beermaking in Panama from your guide.

Continue your adventure along the malecn (sea wall) to a seafood market, where youll enjoy some fresh ceviche, a Panamanian specialty thats also common throughout Central and South America. Panamanian ceviche typically consists of small pieces of fresh raw fish cured in lime juice and flavored with chopped onion and cilantro, and its one of the best things youll eat all day.

Finally, head to your last stop, a rooftop bar, for a rum cocktail made with 7-year-old Ron Abuelo, which comes from one of Panama's oldest rum producers. As you sip your drink, watch the sunset over the city. Your tour ends here, where you can stay on your own to continue your evening in Panama City, or find perhaps another spot in Casco Viejo to have drinks and dinner.

  • Loved the tour. Kevin was energetic and fun. Lots of ideas of what to do and see in Casco Viejo. Food was good. Not enough for dinner. But adequate Lots of walking. Wear comfortable shoes.

  • Our four stops were 1 special coffee and very dark chocolate candy, 2 beer, 3 cerviche at the fish market and 4 rum. Be sure you like these food items before you sign up. Each setting was special and very enjoyable.
    Every food was real good for those who had a taste for them. We enjoyed Ross' narration, knowledge, tour skills and attitude toward tourists. It was a beautiful night for a walk and an easy-going introduction to these four choice locations.
    We didn't expect to enjoy cerviche so much but it was VERY good.

  • Highly recommend. Good way to see a little bit of Casco Viejo! The ceviche at the Fish Market was excellent!

  • This was the first thing my husband and I did in Panama City we literally started the tour just 3 hours after our flight landed!, and it was the absolute best way we could have started our trip. Kevin was incredibly knowledgeable and personable, and the places he took us were and the information he gave us about the area and the food/drinks was fantastic.
