Everything was Ok. All about the ride and how to get there was amazing. But you have to be careful with the boat that you choose.

I don't think it is worth to book a flight to specially visit it yet don't miss the chance when you are in the region. You'll find nice beaches and some good surf... some places are still real natural and a walk over the island(s)...More

Checked out two attractions on Bastimentos: 1. Red Frog Beach: Decent beach within a 20 minute boat ride from Isla Colon and another 10 minutes walking from the boat landing point. Long, sandy beach. Not the best for swimming as the waves got pretty gnarly...More
