Taste of Panama

Raúl Vaquerizo

Hotel Riu Panamá Plaza, Panama City, Panama

Just a short ride from lush tropical rain forests, Panama City is a bustling, metropolitan center whose food culture, nightlife, and skyline have been steadily eclipsing its famous canal. At the five-star Hotel Riu Panamá Plaza, Spanish-born and French-trained executive chef Raúl Vaquerizo transforms indigenous ingredients with an artful modernist sensibility.
