I bought tickets yesterday for a two week trip to Aruba (probably just over night) and Bonaire. Flight times were good and tickets were much cheaper than flying directly into Bonaire.
Anyway, now I have to figure out where to stay. We're 60's, husband is a diver, but hasn't been in several years. Doubt he will this trip. We like to snorkel and love to walk. We live in Belize in the winter and it's not uncommon for us to walk 8-9 miles a day.
We want to be walking distance to Kralendijk. I don't want to have to worry about having a few drinks at 'happy hour' and dinner and then driving. We also want ocean front.
Our first trip was last fall, only five days. We stayed at Oceanfront Apartments. The location was perfect. The unit wasn't bad, but, could have used some TLC.
I remember lots of condo/apartment type buildings along that stretch, but, don't recall any names and also don't know if any of them do short term rentals.
Also, this is my paranoid side talking, is it common on Bonaire to have a propane tank in the kitchen as a source for gas for the stove? Here in the US, we don't even keep our tank (for the grill) in the garage. They're outside.
