Comments Having been 15-20 times to Bonaire, never stayed at the upscale Harbour Village versus Buddy!s or Capt Dons. The beach was nice for non-diving family and comfortable for their stay. Not set up for shore diving other than being dropped off by the dive boat for the very good "something special site" ultimately a vacation with diving versus normal dive trip vacation. Do not consider the 17 dives satisfactory for a normal 6 days of diving and will make up for it next ime back in Bonaire in July. Flight from Bonaire was slightly delayed and our 7 family members plus another 37 divers from a local dive we knew had their connecting flight cancelled by United Airlines with no reimbursement for the inconvenience or cost. Th irony was the next morning we talked to a pllot who flew an empty plane to pick us up!
