See, feel and taste the culture of Bonaire, beginning with a drive north along the scenic coastline. You’ll immediately get a feel for Bonaire’s flora and landscape, huge candelabra cacti, trees, ocean views and the uninhabited island of Klein Bonaire.

Pass various famous dive sites and the historic plantation area of Karpata. This was once a trading center that produced aloe and charcoal.

Enjoy a panoramic view of the fertile Rincon Valley -- the ancestral home to the Arawak Natives who came here from the South American mainland more than a thousand years ago. Today Rincon is still a quiet, tranquil village, but its many traditions are alive and are celebrated with great fanfare and festivities.

Drive through a part of the village and hear about the history, various houses, the church and the government building.

Pause at an authentic local house, relax under a shady tree in the garden and sample the locally produced cactus liqueur.

Encounter the seven-layer rocks and perhaps even see some wandering donkeys as your drive continues.

Next stop is at the Seru Largu lookout point for photos of the 360-degree panoramic views. The final stop will be at the Terramar Museum a historical and archaeological museum. A visit will take you on a journey through 7,000 years of Caribbean history, from the earliest Amerindian settlers to the age of exploration and the colonial area. You will explore the fascinating history of Bonaire and the wider Caribbean region through spectacular exhibits, fascinating artifacts, 3D reconstructions and interactive experiences.

Notes:

There are some stairs inside the museum and no elevators.
