An Overview Of The Bonaire Caribbean Vacation

Aug 17, 2007
Tired of the same old Caribbean vacation packages year after year? Fed up with cheesy tourist towns, themed hotels and fighting the crowds at amusement parks? Why not try something different? Why not try what some call the best Caribbean vacation ever - the island of Bonaire? The only complaint visitors have had about this island was there wasn't enough time to do all the things they wanted to!

Located in the southern Caribbean, Bonaire is mostly known for its fabulous scuba diving, snorkeling and windsurfing. The people of Bonaire are very conscious about preserving the wildlife in their area both on land and under the water; this is what makes Bonaire a key destination for adventurers.

Bonaire also offers kayaking, cycling and mountain biking in an almost perfect climate. Statistics have shown that over thirty percent of all first time visitors to Bonaire end up returning again and again. It makes a wonderful family Caribbean vacation.

When looking for the Caribbean vacation packages that include scuba diving, Great Adventures at Harbor Village has an excellent reputation. Great Adventures offers personalized instruction to those who have never been on a dive before, and advanced dives for those with more experience and who might be looking for more of a challenge.

The children won't be left out either, Great Adventures has a program for the younger members of your family, age 5 and up called SASY or Supplied Air Snorkeling for Youth. You can give your child the experience of sailing, kayaking, scuba or snorkeling at a reasonable price. Bonaire also offers many all inclusive Caribbean vacation packages that not only include the diving, but lodging and accommodations at luxury resorts.

Bonaire has 86 dive sites and 30 years of environmental protection laws that have resulted in some of the most pristine dives in the world for the most exciting of Caribbean vacations. There are more than 300 species of aquatic life around the island. Located outside the "hurricane belt" helps to keep the climate on an even keel and amazing visibility no matter how deep the dive.

One practice you will find throughout the Caribbean is that of taking ships seized in drug raids and sinking them off shore to form artificial reefs. Not all of these wrecks have such a notorious background; the Our Confidence, sunk in 2004, has a very colorful and honorable history.

The Our Confidence started out as a Danish fishing boat that, during World War II, helped to transport refugees. The Our Confidence was also the first ship to bring help to the victims of the hurricane that struck St. Maartin years ago. Complete Caribbean vacation packages need to include a visit to this sunken ship.

One of the best Caribbean vacation packages you can find is Bonaire. Bonaire is known the world over as the foremost destination for diving. CNN and Scuba Diving Magazine rank it high as a place for both beginners and the experienced diver. But what if you don't want adventure?

Well, Bonaire can fulfill that need too. Bonaire has many spas, shops and restaurants that are sure to appeal to those of you looking for that laid back, tropical vacation. Bonaire's clean, white sand beaches are the perfect place for relaxing with a drink in your hand or a good book. Whatever your vacationing goals are, Bonaire is sure to meet them.
