“Interesting, worth viewing while on a tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013

If you're in Bonaire, and looking to see stuff, this is worth a look. Whether on a tour or by taxi, it's interesting to see another side of Bonaire. Taxi drivers do tours of Bonaire and will take you wherever you want to go on the island for a set hourly rate. If you're touring the south side of the island as I did, you will go by these salt flats on the main road.

“Unique”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2013

Saly flats, salt mountains, pink lakes, and of course lots of sunshine. Also some most interesting former slave quarters. A must when in Bonaire.

“The diverend colors of the lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

You can see from a distance the saltmountains but around you have the lake in pink and blue. Amazing view ! The drive in the south of the island is great and you can see the difference between the see on both sides of the island.
