What You Can Expect

Panama City Folkloric Show and Dinner

City Folkloric Nightshow and Dinner

Panama has always been a melting pot for several cultures, which blessed the country with wonderful music traditions. Originally, native Indian groups created their acoustic instruments using parts of plants and shells of different animals. Later, the Spanish conquerors brought their influence from the Old World. The Afro-Caribbeans also contributed to Panama's diversity when they arrived for the Panama Canal's construction. These and other small groups gave birth to, what is today, one of the most attractive and folkloric heritages of Latin America.

This allegoric dinner and show will entertain you with traditional acoustic music played by local musicians. Dancers (including women wearing the unique "pollera") exhibit handmade cotton dresses complemented by precious body and head jewelry. The men´s typical attire is relatively simple; however, their hats are finely handmade by excellent artisans who spend weeks creating only one piece, and their cotton shirts boast gold or pearl buttons.

Sit back, relax and enjoy a breathtaking journey into Panamanian history accompanied by excellent local cuisine.

Had problems with reservations. Was in my traveling partners name (David Roy) instead of mine, Santos Pajntoja. Made it OK after some trouble. Almost missed the show and dinner.

We had a bit of a problem with the hotel pick-up. First, when we called from the USA to confirm, we were given one time. We called again from Panama and were given another time. Second, the driver did not speak English. Though he had our names on his sheet, he didn't seem to recognize the Viator cofirmation sheets.. Fortunately, the representative at the hotel helped resolve the problem. The dinner was very nice and the server, very friendly and helpful. We were seated in the back center of the room. The show was entertaining and lived up to the description. It would have been nice to have had more singing in the show.
