Mercado de Mariscos

Top choice market in Panama City

Get your seafood fix above a bustling fish market. Come early, as service at peak time is painfully slow. Gems include whole fried fish and cavernous bowls of ‘Get Up Lazarus’ soup (a sure hangover cure). Outside, stands ladle out delicious US$3 plastic cups of ceviche, including classic concoctions, Mediterranean style (with olives) and curry.
