How is this possible? With a one-year nature tag, which provides access to both the Bonaire National Marine Park and Washington-Slaagbai National Park. It is available from non-profit STINAPA, who manages and protects the parks, as well as from local dive shops and the Tourism Office in Kralendijk.
The price? Only $25 USD, for a whole year. $10 day passes are also available.
This is among the greatest bargain in the Caribbean and the world.
We just bought our tags for 2017, and look forward to new adventures in the parks. What are you waiting for?
