bonaire prosCaptain Don Stewart started it all 30 years ago. No wonder they have the dive resort thing figured out. Our friend Jack Chalk, manager of Captain Don’s Habitat, just called. He said you should know about their Specials for the rest of 2006, along with all the upgrades being done on their Deluxe Ocean View rooms. We told him he should fly us down there tomorrow. We’re still waiting, but here are the Specials.

Bonaire Culinary Team

The locals know it. The regular Bonaire visitors know it. We’re drooling just writing this. Bonaire’s chefs and bartenders, bonairepros.comalong with the variety of restaurants and cuisines offered on the island, are simply amazing. The creativeness and distinct quality of the Bonaire dining scene is evidenced by their recent success at the “Taste of the Caribbean” competition, held in Miami last month. The Bonaire Culinary Team brought home a Bronze medal for their three-course meal. And Jane Marie Coffie of the Divi Flamingo garnered the Overall Gold Medal in the bartender competition for her three drinks.

You’ll see Bonaire Dining as a regular feature in future newsletters. And we’re contemplating which one we’ll order from Jane Marie first – the “Divi Melon Coconut Cocktail”, “Callabas Reef” or the “Caribbean Breeze”!

Island Tax: The Commissioner of Tourism for Bonaire announced this month that the revisions in the island tax structure including departure tax, sales taxes and car rental taxes will not be introduced until further notice. There was quite a stir from the island’s tourism providers as well as visitors and residents of Bonaire. It’s nice to see a government listening and rethinking their plan. Regarding other rumors and island chatter, the talk of giant hotels, golf courses, and the like continues as usual.
