My husband and I are heading to Bonaire in 2 weeks. We were there for 3 days two years ago and loved it so much, we are returning for a week. The question I have is about crime. I have read a lot of tips about vehicle theft issues, but I can't find anything about the safety of walking at night. Last time we were there, I hadn't really done much research on Bonaire before we left because we were just tagging the 3 days at the end of our Aruba vacation. So, being blissfully ignorant, we didn't realize there were any issues until we got home and started reading this bulliten board. We stayed at the Plaza and really enjoyed walking into town, or to Richards for dinner\drinks, and were looking forward to doing that again. Is that safe to do or were we doing something that we shouldn't have been, and shouldn't do again. We are from Washington,DC so we're not trying to blow the whole crime thing out of proportion, but, just want to know what is smart to do and what is not.

I feel safer in Bonaire than I do in New Jersey. Carole

Hi! I've never feared for the people on Bonaire, but for the free roaming dogs in the neighborhood! They may be perfectly harmless, but when I was out for an afternoon walk, and was approached by 5 or 6 barking dogs,it did make me feel somewhat unsettled. But that didn't seem to be a problem in town!

Thanks everyone for your input. I'm glad to hear that walking to dinner is something we can still do. We are looking forward to our second, and longer, trip.
