A nice horseback riding among the cactus scenery. Then getting close to the sea you can actually get into the water with the horse. Nice experience if you are staying in Bonaire for a week.

Riding in the most relaxed way to a bay and taking the horse for a swim, now that is quite unique! Truely professionals at work here. Nice little gallop on the way back. Lovely way to spend the morning.
