Comments This was my sixth dive trip to Bonaire - and I'd still go back for more! Second time staying at the Carib Inn. Reasonably priced, basic, spotlessly clean apt. style accommodations; knowledgeable staff that are willing to help, but will leave you on your own if you so choose; fastest boats on the island - that stick to the schedule - so don't be late!!!; Oceanfront property with a small pool, a nice little beach, a great deck to enjoy the amazing sunsets!A quick, short walk into town for restaurants and limited nightlife. (diving is too great - too tired to stay up late!)
Bruce Bowker, the owner, is rather ornery - but he knows his stuff! A little rough around the edges, but he has a good heart and his friendly staff make up for it. Just step off the dock and a great reef is right out front - you don't have to go far at all! Just an amazing experience! Can't wait to visit Bonaire, yet again!
