Bon Bini! Mi Stima Bonaire
Bonaire is an island municipality of the Netherlands, lies off Venezuela’s coast in the southern Caribbean. It’s reef lined coast is protected by Bonaire National Marine Park. Beyond its rich marine life, the island shelters lizards, donkeys and birds within its immense Washington Slagbaai National Park, marked by beaches, lagoons, caverns and desert-like hills.
Cruise ships dock in Kralendijk which is the capital of Bonaire. Kralendijk is semi-modern with paved streets and they are in good shape. Once you get further into the island, the streets are very narrow but maintained fairly decent. You drive on the right hand side of the road on Bonaire. Once you exit the cruise port, there’s a very small shopping area but no Dufry store to walk through. Kralendijk is a short walk to the left of the cruise terminal if you wish to walk into town.
