1. Laidback, unspoiled, slow spaced island, a unique travel delicacy
2. Biking on the coastal road in bearable heat, though no shadowy section on the southern coast
3. Bonaire is one of the best diving destinations with excellent coral reefs, relatively low coast of divings not complicated by disturbing undercurrents - e.g. Bachelors Beach
4. Favorable climate
5. Even the inland offers some nature beauties (like Bandaris Hill), we watched strange looking birds
6. Our favorite beaches: Sorobon Beach (Lac Bay), Te Amo Beach, 1000 Steps
7. Eat a whole fish caught that day in La Cantina (downtown Kralendijk)
8. Locals are still not spoiled by mass tourism, is not a snobbish destination, at least not for the time being.
9. We had a stress-free vacation, which was the main thing
10. Soft surfing (Lac Cai and Lac Bay)
11. Clear bottom kayaks and snorkeling through the Lac Cai Mangroves on the southeastern tip of the island
1. Few offers for inland programs, so Bonaire can be annoying for those who like active vacation, but can not dive, snorkel, do other water sports.
2. Too much calmness, little bustle, rough tourism infrastructure
3. though mosquitos
4. Few upscale entertainment options outside the hotels, no field for showing off glamour
5. The frequent trade winds can spoil many open-air programs, some sports activities
6. On most of the beaches there are no trees providing some shadow
6. Hotel room quite expensive in February (high seasons are: January-April, July-August)
7. A too-small island, the landscape is not diverse
8. Most of the shops close on weekends
9. Some of the 22 beaches of Bonaire sometimes disappear and appear. That very much depends on the tides and other natural causes, like wind and waves.
10. To see an iguana swimming in our hotel's swimming pool. Not brutally scary but somewhat unexpected
