Agritourism in Panama

Submitted by on November 7, 2011 – 12:18 amNo Comment

One of the best ways to immerse yourself in a country’s cuisine is through agritourism — spending time in the areas where food is grown.

In the Central American country of Panama, 35 farms offer accommodation to visitors, and another 105 have been certified as agritourism destinations by the Panama Tourism Authority and the Ministry of Agriculture, which provide technical assistance to farmers interested in offering agritourism activities

The country’s primary crops include bananas, cocoa beans, coffee, coconuts, corn, and sugar cane. Visiting these farms, the “agritourist” is immersed in the rich agricultural tradition and culture of Panama while also enjoying horseback riding, bird watching, outdoor sports with the chance to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery in areas like the beaches of the Pacific, Bocas del Toro, Coclé, Colon, Chiriquí and the outskirts of Panama City.

Some of the themes of these farm excursions include: cultivation of exotic fruits, coffee planting and harvesting, planting vegetables, raising thoroughbred horses, and cultivating timber and fruit trees.

Agritourism also provides an opportunity for farmers to make extra income.
