It’s just getting easier to visit one of the Caribbean’s hottest travel destinations, from expanded airlifts to eased entry requirements for vaccinated travelers.
The Dutch Caribbean island of Bonaire has announced that it has relaxed testing requirements for fully vaccinated US travelers.
Now simply vaccinated travelers must provide evidence of a negative PCR test performed and received within 72 hours of arrival on Bonaire (The island has abolished a second 24-hour pre-screening requirement for vaccinated people).
And major airlines are expanding their service to Bonaire in the coming months.
