Tips When Visiting – The ABC Islands

  1. The one word you should know: Bonbini meaning “Welcome.” (pronounced exactly how it is spelled-spoken when greeting someone)
  2. Never remove anything from dive sites and reefs; it is illegal to do so.
  3. Never wear jewelry when snorkeling or diving. Caribbean fish, like the barracuda are drawn to shiny objects that may resemble small silver fish (their prey).
  4. The islands have many secluded beaches, they are very inviting but be careful. Never go or swim alone, you may be the only one around should help be needed.
  5. The currency used are the Netherlands Antilles Florin (Bonaire & Curacao) and Aruba Florin (Aruba), but the universal currency accepted everywhere is the US dollar.
  6. Make sure the scooter you rent is in good working order, and that there is no damage to the frame before you drive it off the lot.
  7. Dutch and Papiamento are the official languages but English is widely spoken.
