Tuna Tartare.  TUNA TARTARE.  Seriously.  The greatest tuna tartare I’ve ever had in my life was at Paki Point.

Paki Point Art, Surf, Food is a restaurant, bar, surf joint and artist hangout located in front of Tiger Tail, a surf break in Playa Paunch. This place has amazing food, a killer view and is a trip to walk around and just look at!

One of Panama’s premier artist, Ronaldo De Dedas (Rolo) has left his mark on Paki Point.  Rolo’s work can be seen all over; on the chairs, tables, walls…everywhere.  The establishment is home to several of his murals of “mamis”; visions of Mother Nature shown through symbolic representations of Panamanian and other Latin American women.

Take the time to visit Paki Point.  Plan on spending the day or just stop in for a meal and a drink.  The “road” (not really a road, just a trail right next to the beach) is a little rough getting there but it’s worth the trip.  There is plenty of space to relax, spread out, eat, nap in a hammock, check your email (they have wifi) and swim, it’s right on the beach.

And seriously, try the tuna tartare.
