There Are Plenty of Ways to Explore Bonaire

Whether You Prefer Riding on Four Wheels, Two Wheels, or Being Transported

There are plenty of ways to get around on Bonaire, giving you the choice of anything from a rental car to a mountain bike and everything in between. We drive on the right side of the road and follow international road signs. And we take things slow, with a speed limit of just 40 kph in urban areas and 60 kph outside. We urge all visitors to obey speed limits and use caution, especially since you’re sharing the road with pedestrians, cyclists, and the occasional donkey or goat.

Ways to Get Around

Car rentals

Since Bonaire is on the smaller side, renting a car will let you explore much of the island. As the shore diving capital of the Caribbean, a double cabin pick-up is extremely popular. A pick-up or a jeep with high ground clearance is also required to visit Washington-Slagbaai National Park. If you do decide to rent a car, you’ll have your choice of well-known, reliable rental agencies. Most require renters to be at least 23 years of age with a major credit card and a valid driver’s license. Nearly all rental cars on Bonaire are stick shift, so reserve early if you need an automatic. You’ll also need to reserve your rental well in advance if you plan on visiting around holidays.


If you ever need a lift to get where you’re going, you can always call a taxi at +599 717 8100.

Motorcycles, scooters, golf carts and bicycles

If you love the feeling of the wind in your hair, you may prefer a more casual way to get around. You’re in luck! Bonaire has a number of shops that offer sportier rentals from golf carts to Harleys. If bicycling is more your speed, you can choose anything from a sturdy touring bike, perfect for paved roads, to rugged mountain bikes that can take on our hundreds of kilometers of off-road trails. As with car rentals, to rent any motorized vehicle, you’ll need a valid driver’s license and a major credit card. Remember to make your reservations well in advance.


Thinking about a day trip to Klein Bonaire? A ferry is your best option for getting there. Different operators offer various departure times. Check with each provider for schedules, service areas and fares.
