Hiking on Bastimentos Island, proved to be one of our most enjoyable and adventurous activities to date. The hike is both strenuous and exceptionally beautiful. There are unbelievable views and steep inclines for the first half. The island is known for small and poisonous red dart frogs, which you will see on the hike, if you look out for them. You will also see lizards and an occasional snake if you’re [un]lucky.
I have mentioned before that I do not stay at hostels too often. I travel with my husband so when charged per person, hostel rooms can get very comparable to hotel room prices. I’m not a huge fan of bunk beds or dorm rooms and shared bathrooms don’t really excite me. However, I am a miser and will always check all of my options and read plenty of reviews before choosing accommodation regardless of where I’m traveling.
