The Caribbean island geocache, “Pirate’s Booty/Bonaire” (GC19NBJ) delivers spectacular views, petroglyphs, and hidden caves. But it’ll take you a four-wheel drive car or the four sturdy hooves of a donkey to reach this remote location.

Cache owner FOOFY hid the difficulty 3.5, terrain 3.5 geocache in 2008. The cache page encourages geocachers to be prepared for a pirate adventure, “This geocache is now available for you to seek, find, and pillage. I suggest that you equip yourself with proper gear including sturdy footwear, a hat, plenty of water, a map, a GPS and a camera.” More than 70 geocachers have logged smileys, and the cache has accumulated nine Favorite Points so far.

Some adventurers who logged the cache say this is why they started the GPS powered treasure-hunt called geocaching, “Very good cache, this is exactly what geocaching is about – a cache in a great location, that visitors wouldn’t usually know about, combined with a good hike, and a great container as the reward. Overall a top cache, thanks.”
