Mercado de Mariscos
El Mercado de Mariscos, Panama City
In the early morning, you can stroll by the pier and watch—as the pelicans do—the fishermen deliver the day's catch. Check out the fish market at Avenida Balboa and Calle Eloy Alfaro. On the side of the market, a cluster of local fondas (small eateries) are the locals' favorite for a casual, cheap lunch. Sea-to-spoon fresh ceviche is the order of the day.
