Is the food the same everywhere in Panama?

Panamanian food is similar in most places. However, there are certain areas where this is not the case, most notably along the Caribbean coast and in areas that cater to tourists. The food in parts of the Caribbean, like Bocas del Toro, is made by Afro-Caribbeans and tends to be spicier than other parts of Panama. Hot sauce and coconut milk are routinely employed here. In areas that see more tourists you are likely to find more diverse food options. International alternatives include Italian, Chinese, French, and German restaurants.
