Afro-Panamanian cuisine is one of the most notorious expressions of rebellion and resilience you will find in Panama. When you take this food tour, not only do you taste amazing food, but you visit iconic places in Panama City where Afro-Panamanians have developed an unsophisticated economic system to make a living by fishing, cooking and selling food. This culinary tour starts in El Mercado de Marisco of La Cinta Costera. After, you’ll go up to the skirts of El Cerro Ancon to witness a hidden piece of art called Mi Pueblito Afroantillano. Finally the tour ends with a visit to one of the most famous Afro-Panamanian enclaves in the city, “Rio Abajo”, which was originally built for Panama Canal workers coming mainly from Jamaica and Barbados, and that alone can say a lot about its culinary richness. Rio Abajo is the hometown of many international reggae singers, such as El General and Renato, two of the first exponents of Spanish reggae in the world, and the pioneers of a movement that nurtured the creation of reggaeton.
