          RenegadeRetiree
          Can't believe that this week while we were there the staff actually suggested, upon asking "what are you going to do today?" that we take the hike over the hill to Wizard Beach and even mentioned we could go on from there to Red Frog Beach. We could not find the path to Red Frog and as Wizard Beach and trail were deserted there was nobody to ask. On the way back, still saw no other hikers, but we ran into two different pairs of patrolling police (which seemed odd.) Upon transferring over to Bocas Town for our last night we discovered that a young woman was tragically murdered on the exact same Bastimentos Island trail (Feb 2017) with the case still unsolved (May 2017.) My god. I can understand not wanting to scare off tourists by talking about the sad event but to suggest we take that same hiking trail, the site of a tourist randomly killed, is nothing short of reckless and irresponsible.

          I don't follow your point. Staff suggested you walk a trail that is patrolled by police? How is that reckless?

          Is it possible to walk to Wizard Beach from Eclypse de Mar? One map makes it appear possible. We like to explore as a family.

          No, I don't think so. A boat is necessary. The taxi boats pass by very frequently and they cost between $3- $5 per person. We really enjoyed taking the boats and seeing the area. I hope this helps.
