Every last Saturday of the month Bonaireans celebrate their culture and traditions at the Nos Zjilea ("our party") event. Here you can enjoy a fusion of local art and crafts, plants and vegetables and folkoristic presentations. The event is held at Mangazina di Rei ("the warehouse of the King"), the second oldest builing on Bonaire, located just outside Rincon, the oldest settlement on Bonaire and the cradle of Bonairean culture and history.
We will pick you up from your hotel/resort and drive along the scenic Westcoast towards Rincon in the North. En route, we will pass by Lake Goto, where you'll have a very good chance of spotting flamingos! Upon arrival at Mangazina di Rei you can visit the excellent exhibition about the history of Bonaire. Then immerse yourself in the rich local folklore with music and dance and indulge yourself in some tasty local food! After two hours we slowly head back to town along the rugged Eastcoast.
This is an excellent opportunity to experience the rich culture of Bonaire on a historical site!
