There are undeveloped forest trails on Isla Colón and other islands in the archipelago, but as usual only hike in the forest with a knowledgeable guide. Certainly don’t hike alone.
Be especially careful on any hike in the forests of Isla Popa, which still has fer-de-lance and other venomous snakes. (Isla Bastimentos enjoys the best reputation among the snake-phobic; a species of nonaggressive coral snake with a mouth too small to be much threat to humans is the only known venomous snake on the island.)
