This was our first trip to Bonaire. We flew Air Jamaica and were pleased
with the flight, although the days of post 9-11 empty seats appears to
history. We stayed at the Divi Flamingo, which was comfortable but not
luxurious. We found the food served at the resort to be reasonably priced
and well prepared. Several restaurants in town, an easy walk on a
shorefront boulevard, were superb - especially "It Rains Fishes"
and "Mai Mai". 

Mostly we did shore dives from the Divi Diver's dock. Wonderful being able
to dive whenever you want and free to go where you want. Very easy diving
on a decent house reef. We also did a boat dive and enjoyed it a lot.
Again, very few rules other than be back on the boat in 45 minutes - which,
if the truth be known, is not an unreasonable request. We ended our dives
with over 1000 lbs, but many folks had less. The dive boat staff was very
professional, fun and laid back. They were attentive but not pushy or
overly cautious. We think Divi Divers is a very hard working, very
professional and well run operation. 

The resort was fully booked when we were there and the dive operation and
the resort staff worked very hard to insure that our stay was relaxing.
they took very good care of a large group AND took very good care of
non-group guests also. Note: the boats did not have marine heads.

We found the diving very relaxing overall. Bonaire is a great place for
beginners and just a relaxing place for more experienced divers. We cannot
wait to return.
