    Just a few items I wanted to highlight from all the informational links. :)

    The link to traffic rules and signs for those of you who will be driving.
    Info Bonaire - Local Information, Services, and Resources About Bonaire


    The US Dollar is the official currency. Traveler's checks and credit cards are widely accepted. Many places will NOT take $100 bills.

    Tipping is much the same as in the States. Some restaurants add a 10-15% service charge automatically, so if in doubt, ask. Taxis - generally a 10% tip is greatly apppreciated. In dive shops, etc. 10% is also the norm. Tipping is a personal matter and these are just guidelines.

    If you need something, the larger supermarkets are open from 7:30 or 8 AM until 7 PM (may close during lunch) and some may be open on Sundays from 11 AM to 2 PM.

    The legal drinking age on Bonaire is 18 for both beer and other alcohol.
    The legal age for gambling in a casino is 21.

    The Dutch Caribbean has its own drug laws which are not the same as Holland. Their drug laws are not lenient.
