A vacation to Bonaire who wouldn’t want that?

Bonaire is a tropical island and together with Aruba and Curacao belongs to the ABC islands in the Caribbean. Bring a book, beach chair and laze around. Stroll along the ocean, have a cocktail at the beach bar and enjoy a grilled freshly caught fish at sunset.

And yet, there are big differences in the three islands and that’s why we give 5 travel tips so you know what makes Bonaire so special.

The lifestyle

The people of Bonaire take it easy. They are less hectic and enjoy their island intensely. You notice that everywhere. In the hotels, the restaurants and on the streets. There is a relaxed atmosphere where everything is possible and rush is non-existent. Mass tourism has not yet taken hold on Bonaire and that makes it smaller, cozier and more authentic. Bon bini Bonaire!

The climate

All year round Bonaire offers a steady summer climate. Sunshine is guaranteed, even in the so-called “rainy season. The months of September and October are accompanied by tropical rains in the afternoon, but an entire day of rain never occurs.

It is a diving paradise

For lovers of the underwater world, Bonaire is unique. The island is known as one of the best dive sites in the world. In the protected Bonaire National Marine Park you can see tropical fish, the colors of the coral and numerous other marine inhabitants.
