What we wished we had known before leaving:
Arrived on the "red eye" from Houston about 5:30 am.  Picked up
the rental car and drove to Den Lamans only to find the door locked. The
office doesn't open until 8:30 am. We couldn't get in the building so we
sat at a picnic table and waited.  A real bummer after being awake all
night.  Then we were informed that check in time was 12 noon and if we
wanted a room earlier we would need to pay for an extra night.  We told
them no way that was going to happen and we were immediately taken to our

The good stuff:
In spite of the the delay in getting a room, we would stay at Den Lamans
again.  The rooms are immaculate and after the initial registration
problems everyone was very helpful. Bonaire Dive and Adventures is the
onsite dive operation.  We had a free upgrade to Nitrox and they worked
very hard to keep up with the demand for tanks.  We did only shore diving,
but it appeared the boat operation ran smoothly.
We have dived Bonaire many times.  Although there isn't a lot of
"big" stuff, Bonaire never fails to provide beautiful soft and
hard coral, clouds of tropicals, and invertabrates.  The license plate says
it all a "Divers Paradise."
