Do you long to enjoy a Caribbean getaway but want to stick to your fitness regime. No worries, Bonaire has amazing dining and drink venues,  but you find  can a balance, continuing your fitness regime. I am in awe of the outstanding fitness options available on Bonaire. There are quite a few gyms, from spartan and basic to modern, with AC. I have experienced quite a few but wanted to share my experience working with fitness guru Mireille Boom. Mireille is trained under the Les Milles Program.  She presently teacher at The Beach, formerly Windsock Beach on EEG Blvd. She has two classes, Flowing Grace, a yoga style workout and HIT Training. I sampled both and loved each class. The seaside setting on the sun deck is magnificent.  The emphasis is on core stability. The HIT Training is a 30-minute power blast of cardio and weight training. Hundreds of calories are burned in each session.  I left exhausted but invigorated, just the way I like. I was challenged all the way, under Mireille’s instruction.

Caribbean Wind & Sun Vacations specializes in Wellness Vacations. Come immerse yourself in our nature and seaside experiences but also, tend to your mind, body and spirit. Bonaire awaits. Bon Bini, welcome soon.
