One of the best ways of getting an overview of Bonaire is to take a guided tour with one of the island’s professional companies. There are a number of them on Bonaire that can handle large groups and individually personalized tours as well. The island, while small, offers quite a diverse choice of scenery and topography. The tour to the north has more foliage and gentle hills, while the south resembles more of a moonscape, with flat vistas reaching the sea and huge man-made mountains of salt visible from nearly anywhere on the island.
Getting Around Bonaire
After your initial guided excursion, you will probably want to return to one or two of the spots you visited. Car, scooter, or bike rentals are quite affordable, and since Bonaire is an island, it is almost impossible to get lost. There are lots of good maps available, and there is new signage that helps to direct visitors.
Another option is the self-guided walking tour of downtown Kralendijk or Rincon. Rincon is the oldest village on Bonaire. Whether it is on your own or with a guide, exploring Bonaire is sure to provide you with beautiful memories.
Whatever your choice for seeing the local sights, Bonaire has a wide variety of sights and experiences, which keep visitors coming back year after year.
