If you had to choose: Curacao or Bonaire?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Figuring out my next cruise itinerary. It's between 1 with Curacao, and 1 with Bonaire.

Please help me make the decision here! Why do you like either of these islands? Is there an excursion (independent or cruise line, I'm open to both types) that really made it awesome for you?

Thank you!

Both are lovely ports, but for different reasons. Curacao is great for shopping and is very picturesque. It looks like a bit of Amsterdam touched down in the Caribbean. Bonaire has a little shopping now (more than it used to), but is generally regarded as being a natural treasure with some of the best snorkeling and diving in the region due to the clear water. Woodwind is an excellent snorkeling provider on Bonaire, but book early, as they only take about 20 people per excursion.
