October 1 - 9
Bonaire, the Dutch Caribbean

Bonaire is a laid back island with incredible food choices. Of all the places I have been, Bonaire offers diving for everyone. Easy access to the healthy reef right off shore is home to a huge spectrum of Caribbean sea life. All dive sites are available via, Shore, Boat or, as Bonaire is often called, the "drive and dive" vacation. It is common for your resort package to include a vehicle. This opens the whole Island for your enjoyment.
