    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.

    OVERVIEW
    Dive beautiful Casuarina Point Reef and observe a seemingly endless diversity of marine life along this superb coral reef. Once you are outfitted with diving equipment, you will receive a brief orientation of the dive site, so you can maximize the experience. Casuarina Point Reef has a depth of only 50 feet or so, which allows you to dive for as much as 50 minutes without surfacing. The relatively shallow water is ideal for those who haven’t dived in the past two years and for newly certified or junior open-water divers. You can expect to see an abundance of marine life that may include sea turtles, sea cucumbers, crabs and an ever-changing array of brightly colored tropical fish. Starfish or sea stars are also commonly spotted. While the starfish in Grand Cayman typically have five arms, some species have as many as 40 arms.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Dive a shallow reef teeming with marine life.
    • Bring nothing more than a sense of adventure, as all the equipment will be provided.
    • Observe an endless array of exotic fish and perhaps sea turtles.
    • Remain in Georgetown to shop after the dive, if you wish.

    HELPFUL HINTS
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
    • Wear a swimsuit under a cover-up and bring a towel.
    • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.

    Explore two excavated Maya ruins in the dense jungle near the border of Belize, both of them archaeologically significant for their ingeniously designed temples.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a relaxing and spectacularly scenic drive through the tropical jungle and on a former Maya city. British physician and amateur archaeologist Thomas Gann discovered the city in the 1920s and named it Dzibanche (Mayan for “writing on wood”) for the wooden lintels in one of the temples. Those still-functioning lintels over the doorways only touch on the site’s architectural highlights.


    While browsing the ruins, you may see ancient plazas, public buildings, stairways adorned with hieroglyphics and the magnificent Temple of the Owls, which features an internal burial chamber with owl-shaped pottery. You might also climb the soaring Temple of the Cormorants to enjoy a sweeping view of Dzibanche. The city is believed to have been the seat of the Kan or “snake” dynasty that ruled this area beginning in the 6th century.


    You will also explore the nearby Maya city of Kohunlich, which was built around the same time. Its most dominant feature is the Temple of the Masks, a structure that honors the sun god with huge stone masks on the stairways. According to archaeologists, the buildings in Kohunlich would have been stuccoed, painted red and decorated with geometric designs.


    Before departing for Costa Maya, you may also have time for a leisurely walk through the jungle, where you may spot toucans and monkeys.
