Fodor's Expert Review Rincón

Bonaire Town/Village Fodor's Choice

The island's original Spanish settlement, Rincón is where slaves brought from Africa to work the plantations and salt fields lived. Today it's a well-kept cluster of pastel cottages and 19th-century buildings that constitute Bonaire's oldest village. There are several local eateries and bars in town, and it's also home to renowned Cadushy Distillery. Dia di Rincón (Rincón Day) is an annual festival and holiday held April 30. This massive street party features local food, music, and revelry. Arrive early if traveling with children. By nighttime, it's a lively boisterous party vibe.
