Vía ArgentinaVía Argentina runs through the heart of El Cangrejo, the central neighborhood famed for its selection of restaurants, bars, and hotels. A walk along the street is like taking a gastronomic trip alongside all the immigrant groups who’ve come to call Panama home. It’s no exaggeration to say you’ll see Mexican, Peruvian, Indian, Chinese, Greek, or Spanish joints, one right next to the other. Then you’ve got the Venezuelan, Colombian, Afro-Caribbean, Lebanese, Costa Rican, Thai, French, and who-knows-what-else places. You can also find great Panamanian artisanal microbreweries like La Rana Dorada and Animal Brew.
