Enjoy an evening stroll along the Esteban Huertas Promenade and browse the shops for local handicrafts and souvenirs.

Food and Drink in Panama
Panamanian cuisine incorporates influences from Europe, Africa and Central America. For breakfast, be sure to try “carimañolas”, which are meat and cheese pies made from mashed yuca. A popular dish is “ropa vieja”, which translates to “old clothes” and consists of braised beef and sofrito, a sauté of vegetables and spices, seasoned with cumin and oregano. For a truly Panamanian cocktail experience, try the Ron Ponche, which is similar to eggnog.
