    Has anything changed in the last 2 years in Bonaire?

    I'm going back end of this summer with the family, last time was in 2010. They use only US currency now, yes?

    Anything else? Rules? Do they still allow shore diving there?

    Hi Everyone,

    I feel so much has changed. There is a stretch limo on island. We have folks racing to pass one another. Indeed a few new stores and restaurants. The dollar is our currency. Prices are higher BUT and here's the but..

    We have the most pristine harbour. STINAPA continues to maintain the reefs and preserve our eco system. Conch is monitored and protected. The mangroves are thriving. Captain Don celebrated 50 years on Bonaire. And, still, Bonaire is the only place I really feel calm and peace. Welcome back soon, everyone.

    A stretch limo? What? Can it only travel 50ft before it has to turn around to go the other way.

    When my buddy and I were there people would come up to us in bars and restaurants... "Are you the guys who are diving dry here this week?"
