Merry Christmas to us... FINALLY vacation.. it had been a bit since our last one and we were more than ready!!
Bonaire is my kind of place... the airport is named Flamingo Airport.. need I say more. I LOVE flamingos and the island did not disappoint! Needless to say we were on the lookout for them every time we were in the car!
We flew United, flights were uneventful
We rented our car for Budget at the airport! We had no issues with them and would use them again!
When we landed it was already dark.... I was thinking this would be disappointing by this but at the same time they had all the roundabouts decorated with Christmas Decorations and lights... it was so pretty.
We stayed at the Sand Dollar Condominiums. It was a great location, very quiet... shopping and restaurants within walking distance.
Laura was so wonderful and helpful... she is a great photographer and her photos are all in the room. The balcony was our favorite!!! It is screened in with a great view!!
There is also a dive shop next door and you can snorkel or dive right in front of the room. You will need to get a license to snorkel. I think they were $10 each
As far as sightseeing we did it all more than once.. we went to the Washington Slagbaai Nationl Park TWICE, entrance fee was $25 per person.
I loved all the houses and towns were decorated for Christmas (my favorite) There were cruise ships in almost every day but other than a couple more tour buses it didn't seem that crowded.
The Salt Pier is very neat...and of course did I mention flamingos???
You HAVE to go to the Donkey Sanctuary... I had so much fun!!
Bonaire is pretty... very relaxing.. and a very friendly island...
