I am planning a trip to Bonaire and picked up this book After visiting all of the local book stores and not finding any books specifically about Bonaire, I thought I better check I was concerned that this book might focus on the populated islands only However I was pleased to find that it dedicates about 1 3 of the book to each island While it has the usual reviews on hotels restaurants, it also has some interesting coverage of local history and driving tours I was also pleased to find some coverage of scuba diving sites including maps locating the dive sites and skill ratings for each.
If you need info on the ABC s, I suggest you get this book.
I have just returned from Curacao I found this book to be a complete dud The only thing it helped me with were the guide to beaches up on the northern part of the island It said nothing about what is one of the best resorts in the Caribbean, Kura Hulanda and it s Slave Museum Chech out Kula Hulanda on the web This book also said nothing about a departure tax at the airport while it seems to address alot of fluff.
You would do better with other guide books I have not been to Aruba or Bonaire so I can t say if the book is better for those two islands but I would bet not.
