BONAIRE WHERE TO STAY
Bonaire is well-known as a "divers paradise" due to the accessibility of easy shore diving and the wide variety of other kinds of diving . Bonaire's reefs and coastline are part of the Bonaire Marine Park, established in 1979 to help preserve the pristine ecostystems surrounding the island. Everyone who visits the marine park pays a $25 US fee to access the park's waters, which helps finance Bonaire's preservation and education efforts.
