Bonaire is a small island located in the southern Caribbean and it is truly unique in the world. It’s as if this tiny island was made just for diving and snorkeling, as, from virtually any place on the leeward coastline, you can enter the beautiful Caribbean Sea and dive!
Bonaire has the reputation of being laid back, very tranquil, and a paradise for divers. People have written many slogans and descriptions about Bonaire, such as ‘the best kept secret,’ ‘unforgettable, unhurried,’ and, of course, ‘divers’ paradise.’ The fact is that all these statements are true. There is so much to explore both above and below the water!
One of the best part of Bonaire is that it is one of the safest islands in the Caribbean. It is super quiet and would not be considered a tourist trap, like some of the other islands.
The locals are genuine, friendly and very laid back, not like the rest of the Caribbean where you have to be careful. The water is amazingly clear, bathtub warm and the local fish super timid and friendly; just take a piece of bread to feed them when you go snorkeling and they will be following you around like the neighbors dog.
