Top Local Tips for Bonaire

visitng Washington Slagbaai National Park Pack a lunch and go early in the morning so you have plenty of time to see the whole park and snorkel or dive in several of the dive sites. Note: Restrooms are only at the entrance to the park.

Diving and Rentals The diving is great in Boniare (as advertised). I would recommend Dive Friends Bonaire as a dive shop. They have three locations and are generally just great, i.e. they let us take out three tanks at a time despite their two-tank policy. Beware of the car rentals -- most of the trucks they rent are horrible. Ours was rusted (so much so that you had to be very careful getting your tanks out of the back) and didn't have an antenna (no radio reception at all), but apparently we were lucky. We spoke to someone else and he said the floor on the driver's side was almost rusted through. Amazingly, they still go over the car (with a flashlight) when you return it to see what damage you have inflicted. I'm still not sure how they expected to identify new damage (maybe by the amount of rust??).

Bonaire IS scuba! If you want to scuba, Bonaire is it. Don't bother with a boat dive. You'll have so much do do just diving from shore. There are over 60 shore diving sites. And believe it or not, each one is different!!! You gotta see this place. I expect when people start catching on, this island will BOOM and the real estate market will catch on fire there. It's unpretentious and charming, especially the north shore and windward side of the island...rough and powerful waves relentlessly beat away at the fossilized lava shore. It's a site to behold!
