Travel to Bonaire

Bonaire is the least developed of the ABC islands. The primary attractions here are the coral-filled waters off the coast and the laidback ambiance of the island. A

bout 25 years ago, the local government designated much of the sea surrounding the island a marine park, preserving the reefs and beaches for the enjoyment of scuba divers and snorkelers.

You’ll find that the diving opportunities off Bonaire are some of the best in the world, giving you access to fantastic pristine reefs, shipwrecks, and colorful marine life.

Beyond the 60 official dive sites, Bonaire is also known as a top bird watching destination. Inside the sprawling Washington-Slagbaai National Park and throughout the island, over 200 species of exotic birds can regularly be spotted.

It used to be: The Netherlands Antilles

The Netherlands Antilles are a unique group of islands in the Southern Caribbean, including the islands of Saba, Bonaire, and Sint Eustatius. They are considered separate from the other islands of the Dutch Caribbean from a legislative standpoint and an overseas region of the home country. Because of this incorporation, the barriers of travel to these beautiful islands are quite minimal.

During the period of 16th century colonization of the Americas, these islands were dismissed as being useless. They are quite the opposite.

The Netherlands Antilles may also include Aruba and Curacao, each which has its own unique benefits.
