Go to Bonaire if you are a diver - it's fabulous!!! The beauty under the sea is amazing!! Been so many places, and this is a top 5 diver spot.

It is hard to describe the park. Rough road, stark coastlines, coats, donkeys, barren stretches and beautiful cacti. Definitely a must do if visiting Bonaire. You need a truck or a keep, but well worth the effort to do the long trip around the park.

This is some great diving, the range of marine life both big and small is a credit to the work done to protect these waters.

I do not know how I will dive anywhere else after the amazing diving in Bonaire! 1,000 steps was my favorite shore dive.

There's a sailboat that docks at Devi Bonaire. I don't remember the name of the operator; we didn't go. There are a couple outfits that take people out to Klein. And - there are a number of the marked dive sites that seem... More
