Westjet, a low-cost airline out of Canada is offering non-stop service from Toronto to Curacao. Flights operate each Sunday through April.

The return is on Westjet (FLIGHT 2691) leaving 3:10. I recommend a late AM flight to allow an easy connection. To book your Westjet flight, contact Westjet at

Roland Aarts has recently opened, Food for Friends, a local catering and food delivery service on Bonaire. I met Roland awhile back when we both worked at a small resort. I personally sampled his sumptuous cuisine and loved his skill and style. Roland has a flair for creative food preparation. Now, he has full creative license with his own company Food for Friends. He specializes in Indonesian and Surinamese foods and other international menus.
Roland catered a private party for me last winter and made a trio of local fish ceviche. The lionfish tartar was the star of the night. His plating and presentation was magnificent.
Recently, I have sampled several incredible meals including Suriname spicy roasted chicken with bami, fried banana, tomato & atja. Roland respects my dietary needs and is able to adjust his menu when needed. Price per person is 14.50 with tax and delivery (gratuity extra).
Contact Roland at
Food For Friends (+599) 785-8228 email@example.com

Bonaire is best known as Diver’s Paradise as well as one of the world’s best windsurf destinations. Out of the water, tourists enjoy a myriad of land activities. One popular excursion is a visit to Spelunk caves. Accessible via quads or trucks, this walk in cave has remarkable rock paintings and petroglyphs made by The Caiquetios, a branch of the Arawak Indians.

Have you dreamed of a destination wedding in the Caribbean? Look no more. Bonaire is the ultimate destination for romance with picturesque vistas, amazing wedding venues and solitude and privacy. Over the past 26 years I have planned many destination weddings and hundreds of honeymoons. It is always a labour of love planning a wedding or honeymoon in the Caribbean.
Are you a diver? Imagine a wedding on the beach and then diving in the deep blue immediately after the ceremony. Later return for a BBQ reception. Windsurfers can celebrate their nuptials on the beach and then take off on their boards into the wind. Some romantic brides and grooms may prefer a traditional wedding on the sand in a tux and white dress. There are no limits to the possibilities. Your dreams can become a reality in Bonaire.
