We will be arriving on feb 6th to bonaire and were wondering what the situation was with the power. We will be staying at the plaza. Are they letting people use the AC in their rooms? Is it affecting the dive ops providing filled tanks? If they are doing the rotation i guess it wont be all bad as it is a honey moon trip and the candle light would be cool, but i kind of want power. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance for any help given. I will be checking this till 12 pm Bonaire time. See you on the island sat feb 6th at 3:30 pm

Aaron, do you mean March 6th? April 6th? February 26th? Whichever, you should not encounter any problems with obtaining filled tanks.

Is there a potential end to the power problems, or is this going to be considered normal for the foreseeable future?

On amigoe.com I read that new generators arrived yesterday.

As far as I understood, the "new" generator that arrived on wednesday is again an old one, it came from Venezuela and has far too little capacity to serve continously on the plant. So that one is too to tide over the time till the "final solution" comes in place.

I returned today from 9 nights at the Plaza (& a 10th in the MoBay airport courtesy of Air Jamaica! - see thread in Getting to Bonaire). We arrived 17 Feb & departed 26 Feb. We only had 2 blackouts - Wednesday & Thursday this week from 3-5pm. The front desk knows the schedule so you can ask them. They do have a note in your room asking you to turn off all unneeded lights and only put A/C on when you need it (they are correct when they say the units will cool a room in 5 minutes) to conserve power.

Sue, good to hear the blackouts weren't for long. Harrie Cox, who lives on the island has been posting the outage schedule here, it lists areas and restaurants as well.
