I need to send a small package to Bonaire and wonder what is the best way (post office, FED EX, etc.) and how long I should expect it to take. Enclosed in the package will be a CDROM with digital photos so I am also wondering if the CDROM can be damaged with any package scanning that may be done.

Tom, if it needs to get there very quickly, you might want to ask if anyone would be willing to take it for you, and you could mail it to that person.

Tom, I have sent small packages to friends on Bonaire in the past. I've used the postal service and they arrived in good shape. I think I used "Priority Mail" or a version of air mail. Ask your post office. It was not terribly expensive.

I have a mail box in Miami which sends small packages daily to Curacao thenon the Bonaires. (check out www.skymail.us). There is a minimum charge of 2 lbs. plus duty if any and tax. If you wish, I will give you the address and you can send it. e mail me at chatnbrowse.com

.... I leave MIA next Friday the 10th. If you care to mail it to me I'll happily hand-carry. Email me directly if you're interested.

Actually Tom we just mailed a box that weighed 6.5 lbs and was not that big via EMS (a form of Global Express with the USPS). They guarantee 5 day delivery (yea, let us see). It was expensive $48.00 US. If you try and send regular postal mail, you are looking at anywhere between 2-6 weeks I think. I highly recommend you send it down with someone. Probably the safest and cheapest.
