I found my first time in Bonaire to be one of the most rewarding vacations I can recall. This is not as simple as one factor (like my love for Scuba diving) nor did it stem from having tons of idle time. In fact, upon reflection, some of my previous vacations that had lots of time to "relax" have been the least memorable.
In this case, Bonaire represents my perfect place to have experiences that make for lasting memories. We have traveled all over the world but that trip is still coming up spontaneously in any given week. It was the right blend of adventure (water and land based), cuisine, rest, family time, and exploration of a properly protected island that not taken over by development.
