Bonaire is located in the Southern Caribbean about 50 miles of the coast of Venezuela. The fact that it lies outside the hurricane belt and with the almost continuous sunshine and great weather, makes it an ideal vacation spot throughout the year. It offers great diving and swimming condition with very little waves or currents. The rugged north eastern coast line, on the other hand, bears the burden of the trade winds and waves.

I never write on these blogs nor take them too seriously, but I want to warn would-be travelers to be very careful of what they are promised by Capt Don's. Where to start, we rented a 3 bedroom villa that they representerd as a luxury home with a
living room, dining room, etc---it was very expensive. They sent photos of a different villa that looks great, but was not what they gave us when we arrived. The doors were broken, the yard was strewn with debris and weeds, the walkways were shattered. There was no living room, dining room, etc. Others in our party also rented there and got villas that were more than twice the size of ours, in good condition, for the same price. Capt Don's just shrugs and says its my problem! Then, they lied and insisted the whole resort was booked so they could not move us---we later found that out to not be true.
The equipment they rent was broken. We lost several dive outings in our group because the equipment had leaks and other problems. Regulators with problems, BCDs that had leaks, They never checked this stuff out before just handing it too you. The air tanks are in such bad condition that we started carrying several extras each time as some were certain to leak profusely.
At several times during the week the staff told us that many travelers complain but that the management is not committed to keeping condition in top shape.
The food was excellent and the wait staff very good--although very expensive.
