Drive off road through the wilds of Bonaire in a 4x4 vehicle, stopping on occasion at natural wonders and enlightening points of interest.
Your adventure will begin in earnest at the Washington-Slagbaai National Park by browsing the visitor center museum. There you will learn about Bonaire's flora and fauna as preparation for racing into the countryside, which is known locally as the kunuku. Chances are, you will pass towering cacti, mesquite and wind-blown watapana trees on your way to Lac Bay on the island's eastern shore.
After pausing to take in the natural beauty and perhaps see a wild donkey or two, you will head to Bonaire's first lighthouse, a Doric column of sorts built in 1837. You will also stop at a collection of huts for the African slaves that once cultivated maize and worked the salt pans. Bonaire still produces vast quantities of salt and you will see towering mountains of it by the sea.
