Just returned from 2 weeks in Bonaire and wanted to pass along some information.

 

Beginning this year, Bonaire began charging a 'Visitor Entry Tax' (instead of the departure tax, room tax, etc. as in the past). They prefer you pay this upfront (72[?] hours before arrival). Your receipt (you can print it or keep an electronic copy) has a QR code, which will be scanned as you walk into the terminal from the plane. If you do not pay in advance, you'll be directed to a kiosk to pay, prior to presenting your passport for entry. Here's the link for info & payment.

 

HOT DIVE SITE - 'SMALL WALL' - located just north of the desalination plant in front of the Black Durgon resort. This small vertical wall is located just south of the mooring. There is a large green moray living in a small cave at the base. On my last dive, 4 seahorses were spotted approximately 10ft from the base of the wall along its length. If you shine lights on them, they will hide. They are also crowd sensitive. Back off, watch their location, they may move, find them again and you might get that coveted picture.

 

A trip to Bonaire is not complete, unless you go to Gio's gelato shop (go to Korel's on the waterfront, & it's 1 block back). There's also a new cafe 'Meet & Eat' across the side alley from Gio's.

 

It's the end of rainy season, hope y'all have clear sunny skies. Have fun, Kamala usually makes sure of that!!!

 

Bill

Awe Bill we love you! So wish our travel schedules will line up again! And yes I've gotten the new tax info as well and about to pass it along to everyone. Sort of dancing with a hurricane again...in S. Florida. :(

Zil has reconfirmed that the tour is good even if its $90 but still wants it on Friday to not miss any diving. She also wants 2 extra days of diving.
