After a short climb, you will reach the ticket booth where you have to pay an entrance fee of $8. From there you walk for about 1.5 hours past 3 spectacular waterfalls.

Content: Bastimentos Island is known for the small red poison dart frogs that you can find here. The easiest way to spot them is to follow the loud chirping sound the frogs make. And then you need good eyes, because the little animals are quite small.

Content: Probably the most beautiful accommodation on our trip. A lodge with private cabins, tipis and dormitories directly on Red Frog Beach. The only disadvantage: there is no kitchen, you always have to eat in the lodge's restaurant, which is not cheap. But it's okay for a few days.
