After 15 years of traveling to Aruba I am thinking of going to Bonaire for 5 days, as I have always wanted to visit the Island.

LuAnn- I too had traveled to Aruba many times with my mom we love to snorkel. We were told several times that we should visit Bonaire. We were nervous to make the switch because we felt so comfortable on Aruba. One year we decided to go for it. I haven't been back to Aruba. My mom and dad still go to Aruba together but I fell in love with Bonaire and haven't even thought about going back to Aruba since. You will find Bonaire a very comfortable friendly place as well. We stay at the Divi Flamingo. It is within walking distance to town and we walk to town often. There are many restaurants to choose from. We do rent a car as there are many places not within walking distance that we enjoy going too. Bonaire doesn't have a "phone hut" in the way that Aruba does but we found renting a cell phone from Michael at Chat and Browse very affordable and a great way to keep in touch with family at home. We snorkel often with Renee. She knows all of the best places to go and can show you anything you want to see. ENJOY!!

I found Michael by chance last week when my wife fell and broke her leg at 1000 Steps. He is located just outside the Sand Dollar complex. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell him that Jim & Diana sent you and thank him again for his help.

LuAnn -- you will save $$ and have much more internet time if you rent a WiFi card from Michael at Chat 'n Browse. You will find him in the group of stores just north of the roundabout at the north end of town.

Lu-Anne, think of the areas in the interior of Aruba, the areas on the way to the caves and the natural pool and behind the lighthouse and make them greener, add more hills, parakeets, throw in more goats and donkeys, add the beautiful flamingos and wonderful warm people and you have Bonaire. Aruba was many of the above mentioned things before it was "discovered". Forgive the sentence structure! Anyway, in addition, the under water beauty is breathtaking. I prefer snorkeling and it is so easy on Bonaire. A day or two of a car rental to tour, and a day to Klein Bonaire for some extra special snorkeling and you'll be surprised that your 5 days will be almost up. Dinner in town on the water just takes you away. You're on the water front. You can't loose. You will love it.
