I just read the article about recycling water bottles by filling them up with Bonaire's tap water on the BonaireInsider.

Even better, bring your own bottle/bottles with you from home and take it back home again after you leave. I bring a Lexan wide mouth 1 litre bottle. On the flight down I fill it with granola bars for the week to save on packing space.

Last year we stayed at the Divi and the tap water was horrible. We ended up having to buy bottled water. Does anyone know if this is still true?

Sorry to hear that Jennifer. I have never heard of any one having bad tap water unless there was something going on with the lines. Hopefully someone will chime in about Divi. We buy a bottle of water for the flights there and then refill while on island. We also refill our 2-liter soda bottles with water and use them as rinse bottles after a dive.

Last year, the Divi water did have a bad taste at times. GOOD NEWS though, I went to the Chibi Chibi for lunch last Friday and learned from the manager that they have recently redone the entire system (some type of reverse osmosis system, I believe). I did in fact drink the water and it tastes great.

Don't forget to take Crystal Lite. We make a picture and freeze some in our water bottles for something different.

Thanks for the information about the Divi. Looking forward to drinking great tasting tap water when we are there in June.

We bring a six-pack of empty water bottles in our check on bags, and bring them home with us, along with our used batteries. If your not part of the solution, then your part of the problem... Ron
