Hi there, me and my father will visit Bonaire from 18. to 26. of April, and we will be staying at Buddy Dive Resort.

Joakim, I suggest a trip to the Park one day. Also, a kayak trip through the mangrove is a good afternoon or morning trip. The donkey sanctuary is interesting for animal lovers. A snorkel trip on the Woodwind will give you good snorkeling plus a great view of Klein Bonaire. Finally, one evening of gambling at Divi's casino should be tried.

We love to go to Jibe City and watch the windsurfers and enjoy the beach, and the beach bar. We also love to drive up to Gotomer and see the flamingos. If you go on the kayak trip it's really great but lots of mosquitoes!!! I'd wear long sleeves!

Don't take mosquito nets but DO take insect repellent. Use whatever works for you. My philosophy is if it isn't at least 25% DEET it's just marinade, but I could be wrong.

Also check out the Butterfly farm when not diving.

This year we used insect repellent with picaridin instead of DEET because it is so much less toxic. I think it worked just as well as the DEET. It is sold here in the big box drugstores under several brands.

Driving up to Seru Largu for the view gives you a great perspective on the island.

Thank you all for your replies. Leaving on the plane tomorrow, I am so thrilled! There is so much that I would like to do, but so little time. Oh well, I'll try to not stress around. I can always come back for a longer time. Maybe I'll see some of you there, too!

Get up at 4:00am and go diving, life is good.

Make sure you dive the double reef system down south. Enjoy some of the great restaurants..

I would encourage you to contact Bas at firstname.lastname@example.org for at least one east side dive. There are some amazing dives over there and he'll adapt it according to your skill level.
