Culture and Nature Tour
Welcome to Bonaire!
Spend a half day exploring the wonders of Bonaire. You will see the beauty and nature of the island along with an accurate narrative of the islands history.
You will travel in a private air conditioned vehicle. The narrative covers both the scenic and historic details of the island. Admire the azure waters along the tourist road northbound. View of the Washington Slaagbai park and Lake Gotomeer. We then drive through the oldest continuous settlement in the Dutch Caribbean - the village of Rincon, established in 1527. As we continue on past farmland we head to Seru Largu, which offers excellent views of the south of Bonaire as well as Klein Bonaire. Heading south through Kralendijk we will discuss the islands history and the early solar salt works and it's impact on the local economy.
Once you are picked up at the arranged point we will then discuss the route that we will travel.
We can choose to take the Northbound route first visiting Gotomeer Lake, Rincon and the east coastline.
We may also choose to visit the South route where we will see the Solar Salt flats, Slave Huts and a flamingo habitat.
There will be a full interpretive of the islands history as well.
I try to avoid traffic delays and may suggest taking a South island visit prior to taking the North route.

Excellent tour covering many highlights around the island. Brenda shares a wealth of information in an engaging way. Brenda can adjust the tour to cover what is important to you. When we expressed an interest in snorkeling Brenda had great tips about sites and logistics. Also helpful restaurant recommendations. Getting a private customized tour was great. We covered a lot of ground but at our own pace. Really appreciated the insights into island history, culture and economy. Highly recommend!!
