Comments My buddy and I really enjoy the freedom of diving on Bonaire. And it has gotten even better. Good dive has self serve filling stations! (and when we where there, nitrox was the same price as air). Which means you just drive up, fill your tanks, throw them (okay, place gently) back in the truck and off you go. The fill stations were closed at around 4:30 pm, so there was a certain amount of planning required for night dives. Our only boat dives were on the east side with East Coast Diving. I highly recommend them as a very thorough, professional, friendly operation.
Our condo faced the canal, so we had a wonderful breeze on the large balcony. Although we never spent any time in the living room, if you are renting a condo, I suggest making sure you have air conditioning in both the living room and bedroom.
We rented a truck from Avis at the airport, and it took about an hour before we drove away. Next time I will go back to using AB car Rental. They are not at the airport, but they will pick you and drop you off.
There is a new middle eastern restaurant in Kralendijk, Mezze Restaurant, that was fantastic! The service was great and the lamb was incredible. The only bad part was that I couldn't convince them to give me the recipe (but I haven't given up).
