What You Can Expect

Panama City Folkloric Show and Dinner

City Folkloric Nightshow and Dinner

Discover the wonderful musical traditions of Panama during a dinner show, starting with hotel pickup and transport to the evening’s venue in Panama City. This allegorical performance includes traditional folkloric dances accompanied by live musicians whose cultural influences draw from Panama’s mix of indigenous, Caribbean and Spanish colonial heritage. Hear instruments made from plants and shells, and note the dancers’ attire  — handmade by excellent artisans who spend weeks creating each piece. 

See women display white-ruffled cotton dresses called pollera, used in traditional festivities throughout Latin America and decorated with embroidered flowers and designs. Marvel at the ornamental headdresses and admire the men’s simpler costumes including cotton shirts adorned with gold or pearl buttons.

Relax during a breathtaking journey into Panamanian history and get a taste for local Panamanian cuisine with a set dinner accompanied by one nonalcoholic beverage. After the dinner show, you’re transferred back to your hotel.

Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

They picked us up, right on time at the Ritz, which we'd asked if they would come there rather than one of their listed hotels. The driver didn't speak english but had all he needed to say recorded, however we spoke Spanish. LOL. He got us there safely and our table for 4 was very nice. The food was good. Definitely not fine dining as it's a large seating area with lots of big groups. I paid extra to enjoy sangria with my meal and it was very good. The show was excellent and entertaining. We were stopped by police on the way home because the driver went down a one way, wrong and after a chat supposedly requesting a bribe we were back on our way. It was very close to the restaurant, Tinajas, so we probably could have taken Uber and reserved on our own but this tour booking made it very painless and easy for a first night in Panama City, Panama .

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.
