we just got back from 2 wonderful , relaxing weeks snorkeling in Bonaire. stayed at the Black Durgon which is not fancy but very pleasant with great snorkeling and diving right off their dock. Plusses: quiet, good food, great snorkeling and diving. Minusses: you absolutely need a car there, restaurants are expensive but you can find specials, we had some trouble finding snorkeling sites with easy access due to rough water. Also, we are an older gay couple and we saw (maybe?) 2 other gay men in 2 weeks. It didn't matter because we felt very comfortable there and met a lot of nice people. Our favorite restaurand was Eddy's, just south of Buddy Dive. good food at slightly cheaper prices, friendly family owned place, good atmosphere. Try it.
