We enjoyed walking around the farm, learning about the different plants, growth patterns, uses. The tasting at the end was delicious and interesting to see the plants during the tour, now in our plates. We also enjoyed learning about the family’s lifestyle and aspire to...More
We went there because my sister recommend it and was totally worth it, learning about the permacuture, understanding how nature works and tasting amazing food during the journey, all guided by Javier, an interesting guy with an amazing knowledge about plants and food who explains...More
After a muddy hike we arrived at up in the hill. We got a very friendly welcome. After we relax for a little we started the tour. During the tour we got a lot of information about the plants we saw and we got to...More
After a rainy trudge up the slippy, muddy hill we were rewarded with an amazing tour of a beautiful farm and the most delicious produce I’ve ever tasted. Our hosts were so welcoming and informed that we all left passionate about mulch and propagating!
Very rude owner. After a long walk of 20min up in the hill you will be treated in a very vulgar and rude way which will make you realize soon: what am I doing here? Definitely not worth the walk to be treated this way......More

This is a unique place to experience. Javier is so passionate and knowledgeable and we got quite an education on permaculture. He turned a grassy hill into a jungle wonderland that benefited so many species it is totally mind blowing. His wife Jeannette is also...More
We were staying on the Island of Bastimentos. We took the water-taxi to the small centre and there we started the climb to the chocolate farm. It was raining, it was muddy but is was wonderful! We passed a small school, the teacher allowed us...More
Up In The Hill was definitely a highlight of our Honeymoon stay in Panama. The tour is worth every cent of $20. They feed you food from their land and "hot chocolate" from coconuts and cacao grown and made right there on the farm. Veggie...More
We stayed for 6 nights in the cabin. The view was amazing! Not far from the city or to the beach at all. The cabin was very good with warm shower and good bed, surprisingly there were not many mosquitos. The coffee shop is great...More
