“Real Cultural Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Where the fish arrive for the city, before being sold for the big retail chains.
Here you can try different kinds of fishs, and sea food.
The most traditional is to eat some ceviches from the tiendas (there are so many delicious types that you will be lost).
After there, you can walk to the Old City Center.

“Want to people watch and get a taste of the many cultures thriving in Panama? This is your place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

The fish market offers views of fish being unloaded, sold and cooked by the many eateries that line the mercado. One of the coolest scenes in the city. We were the only tourists there. Bought a cup of ceviche for 2.50 and a shaved ice for a dollar- then hung back to watch the fish sellers and couples there for lunch. Great bargain food with incredible local atmosphere.
