Your culinary walking tour of the World Heritage–listed Casco Viejo district (aka Casco Antiguo) begins in the evening at Café Unido. Meet your guide and small group at this coffee roastery for a tasting of Panamanian coffee produced from high-end beans, and learn from a local coffee roaster about the industry.
Next, follow your guide past historical landmarks like the Arco Chato (Flat Arch) en route to a gourmet food shop that specializes in rich Panamanian chocolate. You’ll sample organic chocolate produced by the Ngöbe, an indigenous group from the Bocas del Toro province.
Then continue on foot past the Metropolitan Cathedral and white-washed Palacio de las Garzas, the Presidential Palace, until you reach a local microbrewery, where you can enjoy a tasting of four beers — whichever are on tap that day — and learn a bit about beer-making in Panama.
You’ll stroll along the Malecón (seawall and esplanade) to a seafood market for a taste of fresh ceviche, a Panamanian specialty. Savor fresh raw fish cured in lime juice and flavored with chopped onion and cilantro before heading to your final stop at a rooftop bar.
Toast the end of your 2-hour tour with a rum cocktail made with 7-year-old Ron Abuelo, which comes from one of Panama's oldest rum producers, and snap photos with newfound friends as the sun sets over Panama City.
