I’ve been working for Bonaire Tours since it’s starting years, and I still enjoy it because of the variety of work, and the fact that I have contact with people from all around the world!

I am originally from Bonaire & I love the nature of the island; I feel Bonaire is special because of its landscape, the sea, and the natural way in which Cargill produces Salt here keeping the balance between nature and the industry.

I am originally from The Netherlands, and I’ve decided to move to Bonaire because of the same nice weather all year round together with the tranquility and serenity of the island nature on land as well as in the water.

The friendliness of Bonairean people with their stress less life, makes me feel as if I was on vacation all year even that I have to go to work every day!

On Bonaire Tours & Vacations I feel like I am part of a great team in the office as well in the operational field, where we all have a great sense of humor but with a great feeling of responsibility for the things we have to do to make our guests stay on the island unforgettable and to make them come back to this fantastic island in the Caribbean.

Our Small Island Big Fun motto is always high on our agenda…….

I am from Bonaire & I love my island, which to me is beautiful in every way! I have a real feel for Bonaire Tours & Vacations and for the tourism sector.

The work is very diverse and each of us in our team is oneself, we all understand our work, and we all are respectful to each other. For this reason, after working so many years one with another I have the feeling that we truly love each other in our team.

I come from Barcelona, and its contrast with the rhythm of life on Bonaire is what has made me make up my mind twice!

After 5 years of living in my hometown again, I understood that I was missing the tranquility of Bonaire, it’s birds, it’s sea & it’s nature, and above all, the fact that you can easily combine work and family without having to give up on any of them.

I am the type of person who cannot only do one type of work, so I love Bonaire Tours & Vacations exactly for that! Everyday is different, where either I’m preparing a party for 150 people or arranging a private tour for a couple, or assisting the wedding planner on a wedding on the beach or working on the pier with the cruise ship tourists etc… It all has to do with meeting new people everyday, facing new challenges & working as a part of a great motivated team in a paradisiacal environment! Who wouldn’t love it?

For me in Bonaire everyday is a sunny day, everyday you can enjoy happy hours with friends and everyday is blessed in paradise!
BTV has a great working team, hospitality offers a lot of challenges triggering your creativity in acting and thinking.
Working with tourism, you come to learn a lot about people, foreigners and tourists from all kinds and from all over the world telling you about their culture and country, and this together with making their dreamed Caribbean wedding a reality is what I love the most about my job!

Bonaire is a nice & beautiful quite, safe island with a lot of historical happenings, & the traffic is safe with no rush.

As a kid I wished to live on an island and so I came to Bonaire since 1980, I have seen the development of Bonaire for the last 34 years!

With Bonaire Tours & Vacations we are making a good team together & I am pleased to work within the touristic industry, because I do meet with different kinds of people and with patience I enjoy showing the tourists as much as possible of Bonaire.
