Comments This was my second trip to Bonaire and I love the place even more. The diving is great; lots of small to medium sized fish and great soft corals. The lack of current and ease of access to the dive sites makes this a wonderful location for anyone that wants to hit the water. Topside, the island has just enough stores and service operations to make it comfortable, but if it's solitude you want, take your rental car and go for a drive. You're sure to find your own little world. Captain Don's is still one of my favorite spots to visit. The rooms are comfortable, with great balconies for drying your stuff and yourself. The restaurant is great; don't leave without having a pizza! The dive operation is top-notch, with several long-time employees that always show you a great time in the water. Be sure to look for Sherman. Besides being a great 'critter finder' and all-around great guide, he's a perfect example of the local people and their friendly, laid-back attitude.
