Favorite thing: We didn't bother to do any boat dives on Bonaire. There is plenty of shore diving that's just as good. In fact, unless the boat goes to Klein Bonaire, they'll probably take you to a shore diving spot anyway. Most resorts have drive-thru tank swaps & fills. Our resort had some rinse tanks & a faucet at the drive thru so we could dip our gear in fresh water before we took lunch. That was a nice touch.
Fondest memory: I miss my engagement ring the most! I lost it at the Andrea II dive site. Please see my "Dive sites: Andrea I & Andrea II" in Must See Activities for more info. If you find it, please have a heart and let me know! Thanks!

Favorite thing: Bonaire, while a desert island, manages to be home to a distinct variety of wildlife. You can't miss the ubiquitous wild donkeys. They are literally everywhere. Be careful when driving, though! The donkeys can and very often do stray out onto the roadways. There are roadsigns all over the island that will attest to that fact. And I do mean all over. Even underwater!

Favorite thing: The island is described as 'semi-desert'. I'm not sure what's so 'semi' about it, but the 'desert' is right on the target! Generally, the only plants growing are cacti, bogenvilla and palm trees. There are lots of iguana, hummingbirds, ants and mosquitos. Definitely bring your insect repellent, and don't leave food out! :)

Favorite thing: Go snorkeling or SCUBA diving! What's gorgeous about the island is the fact that it's got a fringing reef, and the waters are all protected as a marine sanctuary. This means that you jump off any pier or wade in at any beach, and the reef is *right there*, with an amazing array of sea life. The weather is always warm and humid, the water is always like a big, blue bath, and the pace is easy and relaxed. All in all, I can see why my friend's moved there. :) Bravo!

Favorite thing: Bonaire is a beautiful but also very quiet island. The most tourist are there to scuba dive, so they are almost the whole day under water. It's really a 'divers paradise'. (just like the licenceplate says)

Favorite thing: There are some neat things to see just driving around like the slave huts, the flamingo reserve, donkey sanctuary and Cai.
Fondest memory: I really got a kick out of seeing donkeys everywhere.

Favorite thing: In Bonaire, iguanas are everywhere! I heard the locals referring to them as "local chickens". They come out at mid-day to sun themselves and make for quite a sight for the unaccustomed.
