Dive Trip Bonaire 2008
May 10-17th


We stayed at the Divi Flamingo. Nice hotel just south of town. It’s easily within walking distance of local restaurants and shopping. We had an Oceanside room with balcony that provided awesome sunsets. Staff was great. Two negatives: intermittent hot water. Never knew when you took a shower whether hot water would be available or not. Second was an air conditioning leak left the floor of our room wet the last couple of days of the trip.


Had breakfast and lunch at Divi Flamingo. Served buffet style, had eggs and style and pancakes available for breakfast. Lunch always had hots, hamburgers and fish available in addition to a main dish that varied. We had a nice bbq one night as a group meal. We also at a Chibi Chibi one night for dinner. We also ate dinners at La Luna, La Salsa, Swim with the Fishes and Casablanca. All but Casablanca I would repeat. While we didn’t have dinner at Mona Lisa, we did have dessert as they were serving an outstanding Mango Cheesecake.
