Today is about looking for flamingos and enjoying the scenic nature of Bonaire. Your trip begins with a leisurely drive to the east side of the island, through a quaint picturesque village. You're headed to a beautiful lagoon, which is your first flamingo spotting site. From here, continue to one of the best-preserved mangrove areas in the Caribbean -- Lac Bay National Park. Along the way, your guide will be on the lookout for the shy flamingo. Donkeys and goats commonly graze along the countryside making this a very special photo opportunity. Capture unforgettable pictures of Sorobon Beach and its turquoise-colored waters, or of the fishermen's pier with authentic fishing boats tied up to it. From here, your tour continues along the southern coastline to the salt lake from which Bonaire has maintained a profitable salt industry since the 19th century. Your guide will give you a thorough explanation of the process, from salt water to salt crystals, while you enjoy the view. The salt flats are also home to a protected flamingo sanctuary, so they offer another chance to spot more flamingos. You'll also see the stone huts used by the slaves working the saltpans. See and touch history here as you visit the original huts. Despite the sadness of this history, the spectacular color contrasts of the Caribbean Sea against the pink-colored saltpans, snow-white salt mounds and clear blue skies make for picture-postcard photos. As a thank you for taking this tour, your guide has a small salt gift for you.
