    Post Misc 20 questions questions about Bonaire things...updating our old info

    Okay maybe not 20 but some questions to update ourselves:

    Lighthouses- any scoop on the various lighthouses and getting to them ( esp the off the beaten path ones...) ?

    Washington Park travel- I know its a crapshoot sometimes, but any "permanent" closures I should know about ?

    Current gas stations that are open on the island and their hours ?

    Is there still weekend Lac Bay action at the huts there ? Beer, bands, and whatnot ?

    Whats the best hardware store for non food items these days ?

    What days does KLM come in if you want to stand under the approach ? Do people still do this or is it a dweeb thing from the past ?

    Let's take a stab at some of these.


    Lighthouses- any scoop on the various lighthouses and getting to them ( esp the off the beaten path ones...) ?
    See https://www.infobonaire.com/bonaires-historic-lighthouses/ Note that they are all in "working condition" so you can no longer climb up to the top as in olden days. For Spelonk, it is not recommended after rains. You WILL get stuck!

    Washington Parktravel - I know its a crapshoot sometimes, but any "permanent" closures I should know about ?
    Nothing permanent, but we've had a lot of rain. The Park often has to close during or after heavy rainfalls. Check with STINAPA before heading to the entrance (or the day prior) +599 717-8444

    Current gas stations that are open on the island and their hours ?
    See bottom of this page: https://www.infobonaire.com/getting-around-bonaire/car-rentals/ They are mostly open from early in the morning until 9:00 (or so) PM.

    What days does KLM come in if you want to stand under the approach ? Do people still do this or is it a dweeb thing from the past ?
    Yes, still done. Check the airport's flight schedule at http://www.bonaireinternationalairport.com/


    That should take care of a few of them for you!

    Thank you for those updates. Yeah always had to keep an eye on the weather for places like the Park and Spelonk, and even the ponding down by Angel City, etc swallows cars.
