Bonaire Cave Tour Guide Certification Course

DESCRIPTION

Caves in Bonaire are relatively unexplored and non-documented, with the exception of a few ones. These caves are frequently visited by tourists and locals and receive a significant impact due improper caving procedures or lack of coordination.

The Bonaire Dry Cave Guide Certification Course aims to solve this problem, by providing quality training for cave guides, and by developing a management framework that ensure the conservation of the caves  by correct, professional, safe and coordinated usage.
