we have been going to Bonaire for thirty years and loved every minute on
the island even with the difficulties of air travel.

no gloves-do not touch coral-actually do not touch anything underwater
which protects the corals - Bonaire is a divers paradise.--freedom of
diving and to respect your limits as to depth time etc. Bonaire presets
ease of diving such as shore and boat diving.

the bad was always with the traveling to and from the island (always the
air flights--ALM-Air Aruba-American Airlines). Now flying to Bonaire has
become very accomodating such as Air Jamaica to Monetego Bay and change
planes to Bonaire (waiting time approx one to two hours) but arrive in
Bonaire by 2.30pm. Now best of all Continental Airlines will be flying
direct non-stop flight from Newark to Bonaire on Sat 11.55pm and arrive Sun
5.30pm. Also, they similar flight from Houston to Bonaire also non-stop.

The good is the restaurants on the island diverse and good.

The best staying at Sanddollar Condo and Hotels like living at home (from
studio-one bedroom-two bedroom-three bedroom and town house)

Greatest--the ease and beauty and hands off policy of diving
