I was planning a trip for Bonaire in the middle of November, but with Hurricane Omar should I think about a change in venue? Or will things be somewhat back to normal by then?

The ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao) are not in the hurricane belt. They hardly suffer any effects when hurricanes cross the caribbean. I was told by a native "maybe just a little bit more wind than usual". As long as the plane you’re on doesn’t fly into the hurricane, you should be fine. Have fun.

All of the Neitherland Antillies Islands are below the Hurricane blt there will be no problem at Bonaire. Go have a good time, it will be great
