Bonaire is an island in the southern Caribbean that is just off of the northern Venezuelan coast. It is considered one of the top year-round destinations for scuba diving, snorkeling, and swimming, as well as hiking and biking in the Caribbean. Bonaire is a pioneer in conservation efforts, which is one reason its national marine park is so beautiful. The island offers Bonaire timeshares for sale that give you a private vacation home in this paradise location every year at a price you can afford.
The Washington-Slagbaai National Park occupies about one-fifth of the island. It has mangrove forests, beautiful beaches with dunes, salt pans and cactus-covered hillsides. This is the place to go to see the amazing wildlife on the island, including flamingos, parakeets, sea turtles, iguanas and wild donkeys and goats. The highest point on the island is Subi Brandaris where you can see the coast of Venezuela on a clear day.
Best Place to Dive
The best place to dive during your timeshare vacation is in Bonaire National Marine Park where there are white sand beaches, crystal blue water and an incredible array of marine life such as sea horses, large reef fish, turtles and myriad colorful fish. This area is uninhabited, so you will need to bring your umbrella and snacks.
Bonaire is a place to find relaxation in a warm, island setting. It is not your typical Caribbean tropical island as it also has a desert landscape. It is a paradise for divers and snorkelers and many of the best reefs can be reached right from the beach such as Te Amo Beach.
There is no end to the outdoor recreation opportunities for children with plenty of fishing, windsurfing, kiteboarding, mountain biking, kayaking, sailing and birdwatching.
What to Eat
Bonaire has a wide selection of restaurants considering the size of the local population. Local food is mainly fried fish, stews and soups. The conch, wahoo and rock lobster are caught locally. For something more like home, you can go to the smallest KFC franchise outlet in the world. Homemade ice cream is a favorite on the island and sells out quickly every day. You will also find tasty food at the Kite City food truck and kids love it.
Adults enjoy a visit to the Cadushy Distillery where a prickly green cactus is turned into a drink called the Spirit of Bonaire. Children love the Echo Parrot Sanctuary where they may be surrounded by the last few yellow-green Amazon parrots.

They offer all the conveniences of home often including patios or balconies, Wi-Fi, kitchen facilities, TVs and several bedrooms and bathrooms. In many cases, timeshare owners have the use of a resorts pool, fitness room, restaurant and other facilities.
