A boat trip to the Zapatillas islands is well worth the trip. Avoid Wizard Beach though! When we were there two masked men with a machete and piece of wood systematically mugged the everyone. The few couples that were there were spread out (enjoying the feeling of being on a beautiful deserted beach) and with nowhere to run to apart from the muddy track back into the middle of the island, we were sitting ducks. They wanted cash and noone was hurt but it's still terrifying! Local policeman seemed disinterested and the Scottish woman running the coffee place on the hill says it happens often. She might have warned us before we went to the beach then! We stopped for a coffee with her before heading down the track to Wizard beach.
