View Full Version : Shortcut road from Karpata

When we were last in Bonaire, 10 years ago, there was a shortcut dirt road back from Karpata that was barely driveable. I think I've seen some hints that it's now only a trail for bikers. Does anyone have good up-to-date info?

Was on it recently, and it is much better than ten years ago! Just go slow.....

Thanks, Susan. Maybe our Diahatsu Feroza can make it.

I returned via that road last year and after the bumpy ride about 100 yards or so back onto the main road, my exhaust fell off.

Clearly the exhaust wasn't happy getting back onto the smoother road.

I drove back through town attracting a lot of attention that day.

I drove the shortcut road from Rincon to Oil Slick Leap. It's about like driving through the park I thought. I would think the road you mention is similar.
