This part of Bocas del Toro is gorgeous. The island of Bastimentos houses the beautiful Red Frog Beach and Resort as well as the actual village of Bastimentos and the marine park.

We took a water taxi out to Red Frog beach and then hiked along the coastline and through the edge of the jungle until we came to a quiet stretch of beach. The trek was mildly strenuous because of the heat and some steeper areas that were slick from rain. The swimming was pleasant because the water was calm and... More
