This magical stretch of land is a favorite among many for its expansive beach, ample privacy, gorgeous surroundings and consistent surf. The beach is tucked away in an untouched region of Isla Bastimentos, and is only accessible on foot or by boat (when the surf will allow it). Our favorite way to reach this spot is to make a day of it. Take a lancha boat from Isla Colon to the main dock in Bastimentos town. Hike up to the top of the island through the indigenous village for an amazing view – possibly stopping in at “Up on the Hill” for some local coffee and delicious local chocolate. You’ll follow the sound of crashing waves on your descent from the top, until finally reaching a stunning jungle meadow with the shore of Wizard beach in sight. You’re likely to only see a few other people here (if any) on any particular day, and is a great place to take in sun, swim, surf, or relax in a virginal jungle environment. If you’re still feeling adventurous, it’s possible to hike around the point through dense jungle and thick mud to reach Red Frog Beach. There are no restaurants nearby, so be sure to pack all essentials in a day pack – plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, and never forget the frisbee

When Panama Concierge co-founder Rick Robbins first came to Panama in early 2010, the country’s appeal was overwhelming. A three-week vacation turned into a four month stay, and within the year he had relocated from Los Angeles to the Caribbean with his web design business in tow. Operating from a laptop in close vicinity to the palm studded white sand beaches and turquoise Caribbean waters proved to be an optimal creative environment. Although he still consults for over 200 clients worldwide, sharing what he has discovered in this remote place with others has become his mission.
