Rum & Cigars in the Historic District | Casco Viejo, Panama City
Probably our most popular tour and the easiest one to do hungover because by the end of it you'll be feeling bright as rain again. If this is the first thing you've read or stumbled upon with us, YC in Panama, then you'll need to note that we specialize in party groups predominantly and arrange bespoke premium experiences for groups. Part of this entails creating awesome private tours and I know - tours are not the priority for the party trip but waste the trip just sitting around when you can do a bit of cultural exploration as well, especially if it involves smoking and drinking. And not just drinking, but drinking the best rums you'll probably ever try! Guaranteed!
Starting at 4 pm you don't need to get up early for this happy hour walking tour.
So the setup - we pick up the group from your accommodation and head towards Casco Viejo. First stop, a walk down the infamous Sal Si Puedes (Leave if you can) street where we will meet the "man in the cage". He hand-rolls cigars. Are these the best cigars - absolutely not, but are they 50 cents a piece - yes! Grab some hand-rolled Panamanian cigars for gifts to hand out to everyone back home. We'll make our way through the stalls and shops of Sal Si Puedes exploring the changing of times before we take a turn down towards the Plaza Herrera. Now, we get the rum part started - trying a variety of artisanal Panamanian rums from local distillers.
Chill and enjoy, before we continue down the cobblestoned streets of Casco weaving through churches, history, and gift shops. Get some great photo ops. Our next stop is a Cuban cigar shop where you'll get to select from the top-notch selection of cigars to smoke onsite while trying some aged dark rum. We will compare aged rum with artisanal rum and then you'll know what a true sipping rum is.
This tour ends with the Bridge of the Americas as your backdrop as day turns to night. At this point, head to dinner or keep the rounds coming - your choice. Hopefully, we get to share this awesome experience with you soon!
