Having dove Bonaire many times, there was not really anything new to take
pictures of. But it is certainly a good place for new U/W photographers.

You are joking right water temp 78-79 Bonaire in July?  Did you do shore or
boat diving?  How many dives a day?  How many people on the boat? Does the
shop have Nitrox?  Any issues with crime on the island?  Did you do the
All-Inclusive or try other restaurants?
By roavadiver at Oct 14, 2015 18:24 EST  
responding to rskuhn: Was there in late june/early july. Water temp was as
stated and confirmed by three different gauge thermometers. Did shore and
boat dives, mostly boat dives. Nitrox included with all inclusive/dive
package. Only ate at the hotel restaurant. No need to go any where else for
food unless that is your "thing". Average number of divers on
their large boat ranged between 8 and about 15. Never felt crowded.

Addition comments to rdkuhn: Had no crime issues at the hotel. Safe in each
room. I feel that the grounds are generally secure. Did two boat dives a
day. I might add that I have been to Bonaire many times and I and others
that have been to the Plaza Resort feel that this is the best deal going.
Hope theses comments answer your questions.
