Bonaire

What a dive!

The variety of pastel colors adorning the walls of Dutch style buildings in Bonaire is a pale prelude to the vibrant colors one can find in the waters around the island.

And much more…

Bonaire is a small Caribbean Island that is part of the Leeward Islands. Over the centuries, it was occupied by the Spaniards, the French and the English, before becoming a Dutch colony. It’s no surprise that the different features of its population tell the story of all its ethnic and racial influences. Bonaire’s inhabitants speak Papiamento, English, Creole and Spanish.

Also worth mentioning for a warm-weather destination: it was recognized as a marine sanctuary. Bonaire has 86 dive sites, 57 species of coral and 350 fish species.

To name a few: the parrotfish, the angelfish, the butterfly fish, the frogfish, etc. And other big species, such as manta rays, eagle rays and sea turtles.

With twenty-one diving operators, there are many diving schools with different techniques for all ages; the choice is up to you!

Free time?

Keeping with the aquatic theme, there is kite surfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, sailing, yachting and fishing, etc.

Or on land, there is the pink flamingo sanctuary, the donkey sanctuary, horseback riding, rappelling and rock climbing and tasting local products including fresh goat’s milk.

And even underground: there’s caving.

Our favorite

There are small, traditional and warm establishments all around in Bonaire. It would be a real waste to stay at an ordinary resort.

A dream place is Cas Thomas, a one bedroom apartment that is located directly on the beach.
