Any suggestion on traveling in Aug to Bonaire from Pittsbugh, Pa. We can leave during the week and leave our of Bonaire mid-week or fly weekends. Any suggestions. This is for a family of 5 with kids 18-13

I think Delta from Atlanta may be a good alternative. It is direct flight. There are many flights to Atlanta from Pittsburgh.

August is "hurricane season". Even tho Bonaire isn't normally impacted, the airlines drop fares from August through early December for this reason.

Probably the easiest would be Delta via Atlanta on Saturdays lv Atl 2pm--the return is good too--lv Bonaire about 4pm.

I fly (Continental) Pgh to Newark direct to Bonaire every 3 months or so with my kids (13 &14). You leave Pgh on Saturday night around 5 pm then layover in Newark until 11:55 pm Saturday night. Arrive on Bonaire around 4:30 Sunday morning. It isn't to bad of a trip. There are optional flights through the week if you fly to Aruba instead then hop on one of the smaller airlines to get to Bonaire. But the Pgh/Newark/Bonaire is the easiest and quickest flight we have found so far. I read somewhere that in February Continental is supposed to be starting a Wednesday flight into Bonaire but so far only know about the Saturday/Sunday flight in and the Sunday departing flights on Continental.

I would agree with the Continental flight from Newark, NJ. It is direct from Newark, however it only goes out and returns once a week, so you can't stay a week and a half, or 4 days, for example...you pretty much have to stay exactly a week. The plane ride from Pitt to NJ can't be that bad, and then from NJ to Bonaire it is only about 4 hours, so it's really tolerable. Sleep on the plane, and you will be ready to play once you get to Bonaire!
