Comments We started at the Bonaire Fun Apartments but moved out after one night. No internet access, no hot water and the couch was made of cement (I kid you not) with cushions on it. Main reason we moved was because of lack of internet.

We went to Eden Beach because we know the location. Roms were clean, had kitchens, two resturants on site.

Used Yellow Submarine for air since at the beginning we were not staying at a location with a dive shop. Nitrox cost the same as air for those dives that make sense to use Nitrox. No problems getting fresh tanks, many were available at both shops we used. Did mainly shore dives except for a few dingy dives with local friends.

Main complaint we heard from all the locals was about the cruise ships and the negative impact they (and their passengers) had on the island. We were there early enough in the season that the cruise ships had not started yet.

Bonaire is Boanire, good diving, good food and very friendly people. That is why we keep going back.
