I just got a newsletter e-mail titled "Bonaire EZ News" (from Bonaire Tourist Office I think), announcing new rates from AJ that were too good to be true ($199 from FL, $299 from NYC/BOS/PHL, etc); the rates were stated to be offered only when combined with hotel packages and booked from a tour operator, must be booked before 6/11, and are good for travel from 6/1 to 7/15. I called Caradonna which was listed as one of the official tourist agencies to call, and they finally confirmed that the newsletter carried incorrect numbers. The rate I had gotten for late June (flying weekdays) from AJ themselves was $534 RT BOS-BON. The rate from Caradonna includes hotel and thus I can't break out the airfare, but it seems to work out to perhaps a little below $500 (depending on how you want to apportion the discount between the hotel rate and the airfare).

Peter, check out Bonairepros.com. They list the airfare separately. Looks like on a Mon or Wed out of Boston it is $329 on Sat it is $429, good June 1 - July 15. The website also lists different cities and dates. I am pretty sure you to get the special price on the air you have to book you hotel or rental car with them.

Good luck Peter. I think we paid a little more for our tickets, not much though! We are arriving on June 24. Pat Relich will be posting a list soon of who is going to be there end of June/1st part of July. When you make your reservations, make sure you get on the list!
