Bonaire is surrounded by a protected marine park
Two of our travel team members visited Bonaire, part of the Dutch Antilles, earlier this year. Following their visit, we published articles on the island (read part of the article below); Crown Court 44A, a waterfront luxury rental villa with high speed Internet access; Harbour Beach Village Club, the island’s premier resort; and two of the top dive operators, Great Adventures Dive & Water Sports Bonaire at Harbour Beach Village Club and Buddy Dive at the Buddy Dive Resort.
For a small island Bonaire really packs a punch. When few spoke about ecotourism in the Caribbean, Bonaire was busy establishing marine and national parks. Island authorities still oversee those areas with care, ensuring unspoiled waters for locals and visitors alike. At the same time, although for years it has been a diving Mecca attracting countless European and United States visitors, locals have not rested on their laurels. We observed pleasant, well organized, modern operations staffed by enthusiastic divers with a professional attitude.
