Nightlife in Bonaire

As befits a laid-back Caribbean island, Bonaire's nightlife is casual and fuss-free. Sip Happy Hour cocktails at Kralendijk's quaint bars or party at Karel's Beach Bar till dawn. Sophisticated night-owls will revel in Little Havana's mellow jazz lounge or should consider taking to the high seas for a Champagne cruise by moonlight.
