Hiked to the top of the hill and enjoyed an ice cold homemade lemonade and shared a chocolate brownie. Probably one of the best I have eaten. The cafe is excellent for gifts and the creams are incredible! Wish I could have then send me more to canada! Definitely wear good shoes and a hat! Probably my most enjoyable morning... More

Getting there is just the beginning of the beautiful scenery that Bastimentos has to offer. The path goes through the green jungle and continuous til Wizard Beach (really quiet!). The place is nice and well decorated, you feel safe in the middle of the wilderness. They have eco cacao and coffee and different sweets. Worth a visit!

They were so nice. It's an amazing place to visit and hike down to wizard beach. The town is a cool place to see. I bought some chocolate and coffee to bring home

Lovely spot to slow down, enjoy delicious, vegetarian food and stroll through all the organic selfmade products that mother nature gave with a little great help from the family that runs that beautiful get-away on top of the hill! It is really worth the scenic hike or can serve as a great opportunity to take a break when hiking to... More

Perfect reward for walking up the hill. Food and drinks are delicious. Best brownie ever! Owners are very welcoming and lovely to chat to. Lots of nice gifts for sale - Christmas shopping is complete! We're going back to do the tour another day.

We were recommended to go to Up in the Hill by family and we were not disappointed from the moment we arrived. Javier and Margot are fantastic hosts, they immediately made us feel at home and gave us a brief explanation of how they set up their home, cafe and shop up in the hill. They have inspired us with...

The brownies are good, but the banana bread is like some sort of religious experience. Worth the hike up hill for sure.

Stopped here on a hike to Wizard beach. Fresh made ice mocha was well-needed after a hot hike up the hill. A small shop where the owner works hard to make an accessible experience from a spot that's a little hard to access if you aren't in the know. Worth the time if you're hiking to Wizard anyway.

We had an absolute delightful time in the company of Up In The Hill founder Javier, who on this tour takes you around his jungle property and explains how permaculture works and how he and his wife Janet have experimented successfully with creating the ideal combination of natural farm plants and vegetation over the last 20 years. During the tour... More
