After being an underwater sea mountain, Bonaire rose above sea level 60 t0 70 million years ago. We see this in it’s surface layer consisting of fossil reef and reef-generated calcareous deposits.
These limestone formations, that dissolve under the action of rainwater,formed many caves. We now have an estimated 400 caves on Bonaire.
A few of these caves are open for guided tours.
Visitors are allowed to see the beautiful formations that developed over time.
In a few areas we clearly recognize coral formations.
Here we see that we’re walking in and under an ancient reef.
Join our experienced and official STINAPA certified cave guide on a hike thru some of Bonaire’s dry caves and snorkel in between formations in a flooded cave.
