Best Times to Visit Bonaire

The best time to visit Bonaire is from May to October when there are fewer crowds and bargain hotel rates. If you're planning a winter getaway, keep in mind that December through April comprises the island's peak season, when the 80-degree weather yields packed hotels and higher prices. Bonaire's temperate climate and unique location, just north of the equator and safely outside the hurricane belt, poses little threat of tropical storms, no matter the season.

November-April

This is prime time in Bonaire. The island fills with cruisers and tourists (though less so than Aruba), and hotels are generally crowded due to the balmy 80-degree weather. Book your hotel several months in advance to ensure the best deal.

Key Events:

May-October

Bonaire's low season experiences bargain hotel rates and fewer crowds, along with pleasant 80-degree temperatures. Plus, the island's signature trade winds keep Bonaire breezy enough for outdoor activities. Bonaire's tropical heat remains: Daytime temps rest in the 80s. October, in particular, offers a couple of advantages: It's just before the crowds threaten to disrupt the island's tranquility, and it's when hotels offer pre-peak season rates.
