Take a Walk on Central Avenue
To get a glimpse of authentic Panamanian life, stroll down Central Avenue, which is within walking distance of Casco Viejo. In the morning the street comes alive with pedestrians heading to work and shops opening for business. Buy bananas at a fruit stand, drink a chicheme (corn drink) at a cafeteria, and sample some street food, such as ojaldra (fried bread).
