Thank you for the report @Blues Runner and loved the great pictures.
Can you tell us about the COVID test procedures when you were getting ready to come back?

Less restrictive coming home than to enter Bonaire. Fully vaccinated US citizens must have a negative NAAT or Antigen test within three days of their return. Buddy Dive offers an on premise Rapid Antigen test (from Bon Bida) the day before departure. We returned home on a Saturday and took advantage of a slow early Thursday afternoon at the Bon Bida testing facility (close to Buddy Dive) so as not to interrupt any Friday dive plans. The test is $65 per person.

Unvaccinated US citizens are required to have a negative test within one day of their return.
