The Beauty of Bonaire

List View
Map View
Bonaire is the lesser-known of the Dutch Caribbean Islands, a sister island to Aruba and Curacao off of the coast of Venezuela. It is an extremely special place, where large chain hotels have been kept out and eco preservation has been enforced since the 1970's, making the diving some of the best in the world. The pace of the island is relaxed and slow, but adventure sports abound: diving, caving, sea kayaking and cliff jumping, to name a few. Warning: this may become your new favorite spot.

The world "adventure" doesn't quite do justice to a day of caving with Flow Bonaire. I have done many 'adventurous' things: skydiving, bungee jumping, etc. But, this sits at the top of the list. Leo, the owner, takes great care to give each...
