Help, we booked a flight from Toronto to Caracas thinking it should be relatively easy to jump over to Bonaire. Only found one flight per week. Can anybody give me other options to get over to the island from Venezuela.

I think we are up and running. Have just booked a round trip flight from Caracas to Curacao, so from there to Bonaire I am assuming is easy. Does anybody know the schedules of the dutch interisland flights. I can't seem to find them on the web only contact phone numbers.

Divi Divi is very frequent (probably every 90 minutes or less) during daylight hours. They would be my first choice -- by far. You reserve by calling (or via email) and pay for the tickets when you get there. Expect to pay about $100 US for a r/t from CUR to BON.

Your trip would be a WHOLE lot easier if you flew from Toronto to Newark, NJ and then directly to Bonaire on Continental.

Greg... I agree, it would be a whole lot easier, but since we are flying on points with air canada, we only have so many options. We used to travel via Miami (over nighting and then continuing the next day), but we would then be responsible for the expense from Florida to Bonaire. We thought we would overshoot to Caracas (free with points) and than hop back at our own expense. We booked with Aeropostal for $125 USD round trip from Caracas to Curacao. Great timing with our arrival and departure. But getting to Bonaire from Curacao was the question now. But thanks to David (thank you David) with information about reserving on Divi Divi to Bonaire I think we made a good choice. Anyways, if we look upon this as an adventure we shall have no problems and if we do, it will give us something to talk about.... Thanks

We are trying to get to BonAire from Caracas as well. We thought we'd arranged reservations with Transaven, only to find that when we went to pay for them, that they don't fly on that day (Sunday) any more, or Saturday for that matter. also, they couldn't find our reservations, even though I had a prinout from my computer . Also, their website is down (under construction). We finally booked on dae through Curacao, but it's enormously expensive. They have lots of flights at least.

DAE is very strict on weight limits. You will be allowed to check overweight luggage, but they will charge you extra.
