TAXI !!!

Taxi, Taxi … ever wonder how to hire car service on Bonaire? Taxis seem to be located at the airport, but when you are out and about, they are no where to be found.  Bonaire does not utilize Uber or Lyft services, either.

We have been visiting Bonaire for over 10 years, and never hired a taxi service. This last trip, our 17 year old daughter and several of her friends wanted to go out, and we wanted to stay in and enjoy a nice, fresh mojito.

What is the solution???

TAXI DRIVER #34, Hilario Bernabela to the rescue !!!!

A wonderful taxi driver on Bonaire named Hilario (nickname Layo). We hired him to arrive at our villa at 8:00 PM to pickup the young ladies, and asked that he bring them back at 11:00 PM. Layo provided an on time, reliable, safe mode of transportation for our young ladies.

Young ladies – Happy  : Parents – Happy

Highly recommend !!!



Bon Bini na Bonaire

ABC Islands

Take a walk through the streets of Kralendijk and someone will likely say “Bon Bini” to you. They are welcoming you to Bonaire – Bon Bini na Bonaire.

Bonaire, the “B” of the ABC islands, belongs to a lot of different Caribbean groups.  Along with Aruba and Curacao (A & C), Saba and Sint Eustatius, they make up the Dutch Caribbean.  These 5 islands have direct ties to The Netherlands. They are all located in the Lesser Antilles of the Caribbean Sea. The ABC islands, located in the southern part of the Lesser Antilles, are further part of the Leeward Antilles.  Bonaire is also included in the “Caribbean Netherlands” along with Saba and Sint Eustatius, these three island are special municipalities of The Netherlands.

The second largest island in the Dutch Caribbean, Bonaire smaller than Curacao. However, it is actually larger than Aruba, yet Bonaire receives less visitors than its alphabet neighbors.

Bonaire is well known to divers as a Diver’s Paradise, which is written the license plates of all vehicles on Bonaire.  In addition to diving, Bonaire is well known for windsurfing, kite surfing, snorkeling, and sailing. There are also many land activities including biking, hiking, bird watching and horse back riding. The restaurants on Bonaire are some of the best in the Caribbean.

Although a municipality of The Netherlands, Bonaire’s currency is the United States Dollar.

As we are deep into hurricane season, we always like to note, Bonaire is generally located outside (below) the hurricane belt.

We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you to Bonaire, Bon Bini na Bonaire, and welcome you to Villa Lunt, Bon Bini na Villa Lunt.

Food Delivery Service on Bonaire

Food Delivery Service on Bonaire

Bonaire is a very quaint and small island, and although tourists have been coming to Bonaire for many years, one would not describe Bonaire as “touristy”. With that comes tremendous peace and tranquility, and in return some modern luxuries are not always readily available … but that’s changing! The Bonairian citizens continue to be welcoming of tourists and local companies are continuing to cater to this population.  Bonaire now has a food delivery service! We are so excited to see this company on Bonaire, and hope that it flourishes on our well-loved island.

Dinner in a Box provides delivery service from many restaurants on Bonaire. Take a peak at their website and click on any of the restaurants to view their menus.  When ordering, please note we are in Sabadeco. Their website details their delivery charges as well.

Many of the restaurants on their site are also listed in our recommendations, and we hope you will take the opportunity to “eat out” under the palapa on the grounds of Villa Lunt.
