Getting to Bonaire

As a travel agent I have learned the most current ways to scour the internet for the best possible deals for my clients. My favorite search engine is You may download the software free and enter in your flights for as many trips as needed. Yapta will automatically notify you if the fare drops. I have seen AA flights fluctuate hundreds of dollars in one day. Yapta has saved my clients and I thousands of dollars. Kayak is a great site. You have to know how to fine tune your searches but their daily or weekly email alerts are great. Presently we have Sat. non stops from JFK (Delta) and Newark (Continental),  Atlanta (Delta) and Houston (Continental). There is also a non stop Friday night on Continental from Houston.  You may fly AA into San Juan Tue. Thur. and Sat. American Eagle flies from San Juan  to Bonaire but there is a long layover sometimes in Puerto Rico. Never fear, I have done it many times and have great tips on cool things to do so contact me.  Insel flies from Miami to Curacao and on to Bonaire. My client Jerry just flew this route and swears by it. From Amsterdam, Martinaire flies into Curacao. KLM has non stops daily from Amsterdam. Arkefly has two weekly flights from Amsterdam. If you need air from South America, there are many options so contact me, please.  It pays to know your search engines and to use them. I recommend Kayak and Yapta for my Caribbean bound clients.

    As a long time traveler to Bonaire, first through Curacao now San Juan, the long layovers are getting very trying.
    Would like to hear your suggestions for the day in San Juan.

      I love Old San Juan!! I first stop at La Bombanera for fresh OJ and mallorcas (don’t ask just order and if you love coffee get some here). I then walk up to El Morro to walk around the fort. It is incredible. Walk down the hill past El Convento and go to the Cathedral to see where Ponce De Leon is entombed. Lunch is best at Cafe Manolin for local eats or Parrot Club for a little fancier. It’s about 20 USD each way from SJU to Old San Juan.
