The best way to get to Kralendijk (2 mi) from the airport is by car, since there isn’t public transportation available. If you haven’t arranged transportation with your accommodation, you can take a taxi from the airport or rent a car at the car rental office area outside the terminal building, to the left of the parking lot. Your driver’s license is valid, as long as you've had it for two whole years. If you choose to take a taxi, expect to pay around $10 from the airport to the city center.
Car seats and seat belts are a requirement for children in Bonaire since August 2019. Most car rental companies will provide booster seats and appropriate child seats, which you’ll need to book in advance and will cost an additional fee.
Klein Bonaire is 20m from the city center, and you can only reach it by taking a water taxi from the Town Pier. You can rent a car at the airport or take a taxi to Town Pier, which should cost you about $10. Water taxis depart twice daily, once at 9:30 am and again at 1:00 pm; the trip from the airport takes about 5m. Take that into account when you plan for the trip, depending on what time your flight to Bonaire lands. The water taxi trip costs about $15 for one adult passenger and about $7.50 for children up to 12 years old.
The only way to travel between the islands is to book a flight on one of the local, regional airlines—either Divi Divi Air or Aruba Airlines. Divi Divi Air operates 10 daily flights from Bonaire to Curaçao, Monday to Sunday. Aruba Airlines flies from Bonaire to Aruba and Curaçao once a day, four times a week.

I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane.

Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
