The Caribbean's finest independent resource.

Bonaire / Medical

Like the rest of the Caribbean, Bonaire has a hot but benign climate. If you are unlucky enough to fall ill your first port of call should probably be your hotel front desk as most hotels have a doctor on call.

In a medical emergency there is the San Francisco Hospital in Kralendijk, t 717 8900. In the case of a diving injury, the island also has its own decompression chamber and ambulance aircraft.

There are no special health requirements for visitors to Bonaire, but travellers coming from areas infected with Yellow Fever need an immunisation certificate.
