Rincon Village is the oldest village on Bonaire and is rich in history. It is also the oldest continual community within the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba. Originally settled by the Spanish in the early 1500s, Rincon was strategically nestled within a valley to ward off impending danger from pirates and other threats. In the 17th century, slaves were brought to Bonaire and worked tending crops and the salt pans until 1863.
Living in Rincon, the slave men would weekly walk a 7-hour journey south for work and then return on weekends to gather supplies at Mangazina di Rei (King’s storehouse) and visit their families. We will stop at the Kadushi distillery where you will be able to taste the local cactus liquor made on Bonaire for free.
After visiting Kadushi we will be stopping at our last stop – a local restaurant called Posada. Here you can try native Island food and get a taste for the local flavour. (Please note: Food and drink are not included in the price).
