It's like if Couchsurfing and Airbnb had a food baby.
What makes us different?
Our founder was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Costa Rica. When she walked down the street in her community, someone would always invite her in for coffee or send her off with fresh tortillas.
Hearing tourists complain about overpriced, crowded restaurants just didn't make sense. So, she had an idea for everyone to have the same fun, delicious, and human experience when visiting a new country.
Panza is a mobile app that connects local families to curious, hungry travelers. We want travelers to eat real, traditional food and meet kind, accepting locals.
Tight on time? No problem. Just need a caffeine fix? No problem. All of our families are verified and our security features are designed to keep everyone safe. So go ahead, book a meal with a local family.
