Bonaire's Night Life
Bonaire holds its own when compared to many spots in the Caribbean when it comes to night time activities. The obvious, night diving and snorkeling, are a given, but there are a lot more activities that visitors can enjoy topside.
Casino at night
A number of the resorts host slide presentations that are the work of photo pros that live on the island. Many of the shots are unique and will amaze even the most experienced diver. Other shows offer a glimpse into the early days of diving on Bonaire and still others are eclectic presentations of the flora and fauna of the island.
Want to dance the night away? There are a number of bars and cafes, both in town or on the ocean promenade, often with live music played by one of the island's musical groups, including City Cafe, Little Havana, Koko Noches above Zeezicht on Fridays and Saturdays, El Cambre in Nikiboko, or Karel's Beach Bar.
Catch the sounds of Bonaire with live music from Bonaire's own Moogie. Moogie performs jazz, R&B, Caribbean, and reggae.
If you are feeling lucky, there are two casinos that have slots and table games for you to test your skill. Divi Flamingo Beach is open every night except Sunday until the wee hours and Coral Casino is open at the Plaza Resort Bonaire.
There are many scheduled nighttime activities according to season. Early October is Regatta time (not held in 2013) and in February, Karnival is the main attraction.
