Top 12 Hotels and Resorts in Bonaire

Bonaire is one of the top Caribbean islands for snorkeling and diving, thanks to its commitment to marine conservation, which results in thriving coral and an abundance of colorful fish, turtles, and other sea life. Plus, this is one of the more budget-friendly vacation destinations in the tropics, and one of the islands outside of the “hurricane belt” too, making it possible to enjoy discounts with little risk of a major storm hitting during the off-season, from around June through November. But no matter when you decide to visit, any one of these properties is sure to provide the perfect base.
