We booked our trip through Island Dreams and flew down on the overnight
flight from Houston. The lady manager (I can not remember her name) at Den
Laman was waiting when we arrieved. This was greatly appreciated. The room
was on the 2nd floor and you had to drag your dive bag up some steep
stairs. The room was very comfortable with a full kitchen, good bed, cable
TV and hot water in the shower. We picked up our breakfast and lunch
supplies at the larger grocery store down town and only paid slightly more
than would have paid at HEB.
Casablanca $27 was OK, Cactus Blue $40 not very good fish, Richard's $37
good fish,It Is Raining Fishes $25 very good fish,Sunset Grill $30 grilled
fish, ribs, chicken very good, Sunset Grill $22 fish of the day very good.
At Sunset Grill you do not leave hungrey.
The coral is very nice and there are quite a few fish. Thrumptfish, Spotted
Drum, Parrotfish, etc. Visibility was OK and the currents were very mild.
The problem is getting in the water from the shore. You have to suit up,
walk across some rough rocks and wade into the water across some more rocks
while the waves are rolling in. This is why I say Bonaire is "hard
country for old men".
