Cross over the Panama Canal on the Americas Bridge and drive west to the beautiful town of Penonome in the Cocle Province. Penonomé was founded in 1581. The name of this town comes from the words “penó Nomé”. Nomé was a chief of a local Native American tribe who resisted the Spanish conquistadors and was put to death by colonial officials. “Penó Nomé” means “Nomé was punished. The town was the capital of Panama for a short period after Panama City was sacked by Henry Morgan in 1671.
We made a walking tour around the colonial district of the town and we visit the local market to buy fresh green plantains, chicken, vegetables and all that we need to learn how to cook this Panamanian dish, we visit a local family where they cook Arroz con pollo and plantains for us and your tour guide translate and explain the process.
