I have been here three times during my visit to Bocas del Toro. This place is so tranquil it will blow your mind. It is so praceful, time passes rather quickly. The lady running the place speaks Spanish. So when she smiles and says "como esta, smile and say "muy bien".

We had the privilege of doing a private tour with Javier and it was amazing! He is passionate about educating others on the importance of permaculture and the benefits it can reap. The chocolate tasting was incredible and be sure to buy some life changing ylang ylang coconut oil from the shop at the end!

What a treat! On the recommendation from the bartender at Firefly, I hiked to Wizard Beach in the morning, then on to UITH for lunch. I was not disappointed. I had the egg sandwich, iced coffee, and truffles, and I took a brownie to go. The atmosphere was sweet and magical, the staff was the same, and the food and... More

Quite a hike that came with warnings from the locals that we should really hold on to our belongings. The path can be very muddy. Coffe was nice, but a strong smell from the toilets sort of destroyed the experience.

This lovely abode Up On The Hill is brilliant. First of all, amazing scenery throughout the entire island it is located on. To top off it's location, the food is fabulous with vegan/vegetarian choices that are so hard to only choose one, you simply cannot. I went 4 days in a row.. Home made kombucha, egg sanwiches, vegan chocolate truffles,... More

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!

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
