Travel Blogs from Bonaire
Third visit to Bonaire (see 2011 dive trip for general information about the island). Flew from Houston into Bonaire; return trip was through Newark.
Stayed with Bamboo Bali again; they are building two cabins, and from the pictures Anno showed up, they are going to be pretty high-end.
Finally made it to the grocery store; that was a site to behold. They have many of the foods we would find in the States, but their layout was extraordinary. I was unable to find any ...

... We headed off to our second choice, Mona Lisa, but it was closed as well. We noticed another main restaurant here was closed as well. Seems really odd that so many places are closed on the weekend. We walked along the waterfront in town and finally decided to eat at Zeezicht. I had a conch, fish, and shrimp kabob.
