Chris, I can't comment on any of the places you have listed, but I would suggest that you choose one with kitchen facilities. Being able to eat at least some of your meals from the grocery store instead of a restaurant is both more economical and more convenient. I know that whatever you choose you will enjoy Bonaire.

You are making a mistake comparing anything to Cozumel based on price. You won't find anyplace that will touch Cozumel for price points

Chris, Welcome to Bonaire Talk. There are many places to choose from, and you will get many different opinions of where to stay so I might as well give you mine.

Hi Chris - although I don't stay there anymore (we rent a private villa on our trips now), I really enjoyed my first trip to Bonaire when we stayed at Buddy Dive in a one-bedroom apartment. Everything is very convenient at Buddy Dive, the staff is wonderful and IMHO, Buddy Dive has an excellent house reef. BD makes everything quite easy and there is a good chance you will meet fellow single divers around the resort who you can buddy up with for some shore diving elsewhere on the island.

Thanks everyone for posting such helpful ideas. I appreciate the quick and great replies. I will be spending my weekend reviewing all of them.

agree with Lizard0924 about Carib Inn boat diving. by far the best boating diving on bonaire. I am also a big fan of the black durgon but neither place does Nitrox as a rule. I think you can arrange that at black durgon but its special and costs more money.
