    I never see any talk about the little snack bars around the island. They seem like a great place to stop for a quick lunch between dives but I have a few questions:

    1. Are tourist/divers welcome?
    2. Any favorite places?
    3. Any particular items you like to order?
    4. Do they tend to have clean/sanitary cooking conditions?

    I did find a website that list all of them www.snacksbonaire.nl

    Thanks for the info - looking forward to our second trip to Bonaire in Dec!


    I too am interested in these questions being answered.. To date, the only thing I've ever heard anything about is Kanti Awa (which seems to be a favourite among tourists in the know as it's a great place to watch the sunset from).

    Default Snacks menu terms

    Many of the Snacks don't seem to have menus in English, so I have taken a stab at translating what might appear on their menus. The foods and their names are a glorious mixture of Dutch, Papiamento, Portuguese, Spanish, SE Asian, East Indian and maybe others! Please let me know what corrections, clarifications, additions should be made. I struck out completely on "Sarsu" for example - I have no idea what that is.

    Sarsu is a village in India. Maybe it's indian food?
    It's also a mustard crop

    Funchi would be recognizable to many as polenta.
