As part of ongoing efforts to support United Airlines' fall airlift to Bonaire, Tourism Corporation Bonaire (TCB) will be launching the third annual “Bonaire Fall Festival: Dive-Dine-Discover” program.
From mid-August through early November, the Bonaire Fall Festival has a lineup of accommodation packages, unique excursions, underwater and topside adventures and culinary specials for vacationers heading to the island.
"Maintaining a continuous flow of visitors from North America to Bonaire during the fall season is not only a top TCB objective, but a priority for the entire island and this can only be achieved by uninterrupted airlift," said Maurice Adriaens, director of Tourism Corporation Bonaire, in a written release. "The Bonaire Fall Festival will serve as a catalyst to attract visitors to Bonaire during this time of year.”
