anyone stay at Port Bonaire?

Hello,

Curious if anyone had any reviews on Port Bonaire? I know it's only 2 miles from the airport and I'm not concerned with plane noise. How is the snorkeling off premise, security, dealing with the property?

thanks,

Lori

1. Re: anyone stay at Port Bonaire?

I have not stayed at Port Bonaire but we use the dive shop that is located there. Port Bonaire is NOT 2 miles from the airport -- it is across the street from the airport. The driveway to the complex has a gate arm which keeps unwanted vehicles out but I can't speak to anything else about security. PB is located on the canal that leads to the marina at Plaza so there is boat traffic making on-site snorkeling less than ideal even though there is a ladder into the water. I have seen people snorkel from the ladder, stay along the side and then head out of the canal though I am not sure I would want to do that with the boat traffic. It would be a short walk or shorter drive to get to the same spot for snorkeling without using the steps/waterway canal.

Who told you it was two mile from the airport?? You can't get any closer to the airport than at PB. PB is located on a man-made canal which leads to the open ocean on one side and Plaza marina on the other.
