Bonaire’s Night Life

Nightlife on Bonaire is plentiful with clubs or casinos.

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.

Salsa, Merengue, and Bachata can be found at any of Bonaire’s night clubs.

Want to dance the night away? There are a number of night clubs, 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 Little Havana, Cuba Compagnie, El Cambre in Nikiboko, Karel’s Beach Bar, Tropical Rancho, or the Lucas Nightclub on Kaya L.D. Gerharts.  Additionally, Plaza Resort Bonaire has a Latin Night every Saturday evening, when you can join a salsa workshop for free, between 6:00 PM and 7:00 PM (pre-registration required). The rest of the night you can show off your new dance moves to great Latin sounds.

Many of Bonaire’s dining establishments also have lively bars, so check to see if your favorite restaurant also has what might become your favorite watering hole.
