      Your stay in Bocas del Toro isn’t complete without a visit to our Coffee Shop! Set on the highest point of Isla Bastimentos, it’s a good 20 minute walk up to reach us. Passing through the afro Caribbean town of Old Bank and then onto a pretty jungle path before arriving to our farm. Come and enjoy our homegrown organic coffee while you listen to the chirps of the red frogs and songs of tropical birds overhead. The smell of cacao, coconut, coffee or herbs fill the air…depending what’s being made at the time! The white faced capuchin monkey loves to steal the fruits from our surrounding trees so if you hear a rustle of leaves..do look up! We hope to see you at Up in the Hill soon!

Great tour We had a wonderful tour where Javi taught us about various plants, fruits, trees and plants. I loved trying things he cut down right in front of us. Janette cooked us wonderful food for lunch to cap off the tour. Definitely recommend if you come to bocas!

Great opportunity to learn and try local produce! Fascinating your and delicious lunch! We learned a lot about permaculture and reforestation while walking around the farm. We loved the tour where we sampled fruits and plants straight off the cine and saw red frogs!

Highly recommend farm tour experience! Amazing experience! We had a tour of a farm for about 2 hours during which Javier explained to us how permaculture farming works, how they built the farm, and how they manage it. He showed us what plants of exotic fruits look like, how they grow and we tasted some along the way. At the end, we had an amazing lunch with seasonal fruits from the farm, which was absolutely delicious. Make sure to wear comfortable and sturdy shoes as there is a lot of going up and down the hill and if it´s rainy before (as it was for us) it´s quite slippery!

Don’t think twice…. Book this special experience in old bank. What a beautiful experience! Permaculture farming at its best. This unique experience was the highlight of our trip. This beautiful family with their cocoa organic farm was so interesting and the lunch was refreshing and just what we needed from the walk through the land after a heavy rain. Bring shoes with tread, it gets very slippery but not too bad. The kids did our tour today and I must say was so special as you really felt like part of their family and could enjoy seeing how they have thrived.

Unique, inspiring, and delicious tour Farm to table as you have never seen it before! This 90+ minute guided hike through a local permafarm was fun and fascinating! We learned so much about Panamanian flora, and got to experience delicious samples of the harvest along the way. After the tour, we enjoyed a fabulous lunch with all the ingredients procured from the farm. (They called it a snack, but we all agreed it was truly a meal!) Entertaining and educational - we highly recommend this experience!

Amazing experience. Don’t miss this one ! One of the coolest experiences in bocas… do it ! The jungle hike was great, the family that owns and runs it are fantastic, what they have done for permaculture is fascinating. It was interesting and engaging. The lunch at the end was incredible, I didn’t want it to end! Even my 15 year old niece thought it was awesome !
