Comments Bonaire is the greatest place for shore diving. You dive at your own pace, speed, do your own profile and best of all, there are always full bottles waiting for you for more diving. It is the fourth time in a row that we go and the drive and dive package is what we find fantastic. As far as accomodation, we go to a nice small scale B&B which is located in in a residential area, a few minutes from the town center. Villa Safir is a three room B&B with a pool and sundeck right at your doorstep. You can see the best sunset from the deck while sipping on a beer. You wake-up in the morning to the sound of nearby birds. Bianca and Peter are the hosts and they will do just about anything to make your diving vacation something magical. From Bianca's wonderfull breakfast to Peter's diving advices. Peter is a diving instructor and Bianca is a divemaster. They know what they are talking about. They do not offer your regular dive resort atmosphere. It is much better. They offer a visit at the cottage. Going there is like going home with family. All I can say is "TRY IT!" and you will return like us and countless others. Villa Safir is like an nice and wonderful addiction...
