Things to do with kids on Bonaire

Things to do with kids on Bonaire

Your children are probably pretty happy to be here already. But, in case you’re planning a family trip or having trouble coming up with things to do with kids on Bonaire we have some ideas to get the ball rolling.

Things to do with kids on Bonaire:

This island is small but the list of things to do with kids on Bonaire isn’t.

There’s a lot to be explored on Bonaire. Kids can go almost anywhere that adults can go. If your kids are adventurous and want to get up close and personal with donkeys, iguanas, flamingos, pelicans, the fish in the sea and most of all with the water, this is the island for you!

Cappuccino with a view

Cappuccino with a view

So many coffee choices…

Intense competition exists (at least in my mind…) between ice cream at Gio’s and ice cream at the newest gelateria on the block, Coffee Company Luciano. Luciano’s, as the locals call it, located on the waterfront in downtown Kralendijk, opened it’s doors in June 2016. Luciano’s offers coffee drinks, gelato, bagel sandwiches, salads, other light lunch items as well as all sorts of fresh juices, cocktails made with locally grown mint, beer and wine. The locale fills the much needed niche of somewhere a little bit upscale to meet up with friends and stay awhile. We recommend it for cappuccino with a view!

Internet cafe…

What a great spot to bring your computer and get some work done. Free wi-fi, comfortable chairs, air-conditioning and great lighting and view make it your own personal internet cafe or meeting spot.

You may take it for granted with all the coffee shops back home but until Luciano’s opened nothing like it existed on Bonaire. Luciano’s has one huge advantage too, a prime location right on the water with a magnificent view from both inside and outside.

An air-conditioned break

Step inside Luciano’s to find a soothing respite from the heat. The spacious, elegant and wonderfully air-conditioned interior lures you in and keeps you from getting up and leaving. A wonderful place to get out of the heat and enjoy conversation and company of friends. And even from indoors you get to enjoy the turquoise water.

Location location

Coffee Company Luciano is located on a big, triangular piece of real estate. This location on the island had mysteriously remained vacant ever since the old thatched hut restaurant “Salsa” closed it’s doors quite a few years ago. A large apartment complex with a museum and shops on the ground floor now stands in place of Salsa. The museum opened it’s doors around the same time as Luciano’s. Coffee Company Luciano resides in one of the shops attached to the apartment complex on the ground floor. Thus the location could not be more central. Ice cream with as stunning a view as could be hoped for in downtown Kralendijk can now be had.  The entire look, including Luciano brings a more modern and sleek vibe than the island has ever seen before however at the cost of old school Bonairian architecture.

Seating arrangements…

Luciano has a variety of seating options. Indoor, outdoor – on colorful plastic stools or in comfortable, elegant dining chairs. And so many choices; frappuccino, cappuccino, fresh juice, wine, ice cream, indoors, outdoors, casual, elegant. We suggest a trip back a few times to try a little of everything! From our places at Breezybonaire this makes a great after dinner walk.

Italian Illy brand coffee is used to prepare all coffee drinks. I don’t know if it’s the best cappuccino on Bonaire but it’s the best cappuccino with a view that I’ve found so far.
