Food Tour in Panama City

Daily

Catering to foodies from all over the globe, Urban Adventures creates food tours in countries around the world that show off the best of a culture’s food scene. If you’re in Central America soon, look out for these options.

Holy Guatemole! Food and Market Tour

Take a stroll along La Sexta Avenida, with a stop for breakfast, including coffee and freshly baked goods. The tour takes you through neighborhoods of beautiful Art Deco architecture and revitalized spaces mixed with beautiful historic structures. Visit one of Central America’s largest markets, the Mercado Centrale, where you can taste the freshest local produce. The market’s food court serves up Guatemalan staples. The tour ends with a stop at a café for more coffee and Guatemalan desserts.

Antigua by the Bean

If you prefer coffee culture over culinary creations, perhaps you’d rather explore Guatemala’s coffee scene. This tour does just that, taking you on a journey through Guatemala’s coffee culture, from bean to brew. If you’re lucky, you’ll get the chance to plant some coffee seedlings, harvest some beans and meet local farmers.

Taste of Panama City

Sample fresh, fine coffee, including the famous Geisha coffee, to start off your day, before you head through the UNESCO-recognized neighborhood of Casco Viejo. Try some Panamanian chocolate, followed by some local Panamanian brews. Lunch takes you to a local seafood market to try the national dish, ceviche, before you end your day with cocktails created from some of the country’s oldest rum.

Barrio Bites & Sights

In San Jose, Costa Rica, dive into the city’s history and get to know the locals and their cuisine. Sample local chocolate, baked goods, sangrias, a Costa Rican-style hamburger, coffee and local liqueurs.

Parkway Bakery & Tavern Review

My husband, friends and I visited Parkway Bakery & Tavern on a recent trip to New Orleans. The restaurant is one of the most well-known for the city’s signature sandwich, the po’ boy. The restaurant doesn’t take reservations, so we arrived close to when it opened and braved the already-long line.

Find Travel Inspiration in the Eighth Annual Leisure Lifestyle Issue

WHAT A YEAR ... AND IT’S ONLY JUNE (or already June, depending on how you look at it). “Leisure lifestyle” may seem like an oxymoron in 2020, but as an optimist and travel enthusiast, I’m still determined to live the rest of this year to the fullest (or as full as possible, given the ongoing COVID-19 situation) — with travel at the forefront — and there’s no better way to do that than with a strictly leisure vacation.
