Cute and worth the walk!

The walk up is long but worth it! You get a great view of the water and they have great gifts and all natural body products. I would just be wary of the prices on the menu. We ordered a veggie burger to split and it was more of a small sandwich with nothing else. It was still delicious but... read more

Delicious brownie, really great gifts. Beautiful views. Really, it's a place you must go to while on the Island.

We arrived on Bastiementos when it was raining. And raining. And raining the next day. Thus we went Up the Hill in order to do something. And we returned the two following days of your stay on the island, although the rain by then had stopped. The place is quiet and serene. The house/bar/shop is neat, the surrounding area well...

A very calm little sanctuary with beautiful flowers, butterflies, red frogs. Great chocolate drinks, hot or cold. Run by friendly Argentinians. A destination in itself,or a stop on the way to Wizard Beach. They also have a cabana and rent surfboards.

Can't help but feel like you are in a special place here...almost like something magical happens on that hill. The coffee was not extremely strong, but tasteful. And the banana bar was fantastic. If you order the granola...make sure you like it organic, not store bought. Au'natural is everything up here on the hill.

What a hike, easy and beautiful, and worth it! We each had something light for breakfast, with pressed, local coffee and the truffles. Everything was delicious, the staff wonderful and the location great! They even held our small backpack for us so we could go to the each without our valuables. I recommend it.

Unfortunately only stopped by for a day, but this place was truly magical. Hidden in the jungle, far from everything else - only the spectacular view. Warmly recommend their delicious cocoa-coco drinks and brownies.

Upon hearing great things about Up in the Hill I decided to check it out for myself. Just a short hike up from the public dock in Bastimentos leads you to this amazing place nestled in the jungle above it all. A tranquil and relaxing place to sip on some coffee, have a something to eat and of course have... More

We went to Wizard Beach and on our way back we saw the sign for the café. So we decided to go there. Luckily we did the 15 min walk through the jungle ;) The effort paid off: the café is really nice. Besides coffee and other beverages and cake you can also buy jewelry and organic cosmetics made from... More
