The Dive Tag (nature fee) of 2015 is valid through January 15, 2016. 


So on January 16th, STINAPA will organize a New Year’s Dive at Coco Beach, entrance next to Den Laman, where we will sell the 2016 dive tag to local residents only. We will be at the beach from 10 am – 12 noon to give the marine park orientation and supervise the buoyance check dive. This is a one-time opportunity!
So come prepared with $ 25 (exact amount please), your dive gear, tank, certification and don’t forget your sedula.

While you are in the water doing your buoyancy check you may want to collect some garbage underwater! We will provide mesh bags, courtesy of Yellow Sub ‘Debris Free Bonaire’ program. 

If you are a licensed lionfish hunter, by all means bring your gear and hunt. 

Of course, anyone who already has a 2016 dive tag is welcome to join the clean-up!

Easter Monday 2016 - Simadan (Harvest) Festival Rincon

Easter Monday 2016 - Legal holiday

Simadan stems from Bonaire's slave days and celebrates the growing season's harvest (typically March/April). The festive harvest celebration in Bonaire varies from other places, perhaps, as a direct result of the way slaves on Bonaire were treated.

Bonaire's slaves grew crops for owners and some were permitted personal crops as well, a "liberty" not usually afforded to slaves elsewhere. Personal gains gave Bonairean slaves reason to celebrate at Simadan, while slaves in Curacao, for example, witnessed harvest going only to the owners and lamented instead.

After Bonaire's slavery abolition in 1863, most slaves received land. Together, families took turns helping to harvest and celebrating the crops throughout Simadan. Similarly today, familes and friends gather to help harvest sorghum and maize, while the farmer supplies food and drink (rum) for the party.
