Dive Resort
Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba, Bonaire
Bruce Bowker’s Carib Inn is a resort dedicated to the needs and requirements of travelers who want a diving vacation. By focusing on diving, specialized personnel maintain quality throughout the resort. Although diving is featured at the Carib Inn, many guests come just to relax and enjoy Bonaire. Bruce and Liz Bowker are the owners with Bruce being the resident manager of the Carib Inn. Bruce and Liz have always kept an honest advertising campaign. “We never advertise more than we can offer. We prefer to advertise less than we have so people are pleased when they see what they get.” With such a high return, the Carib Inn guests feel at home with their friends from last year. The Carib Inn has only eleven units with no plans for expansion. Bruce has said that bigger is not always better. Its current size is easily managed and easily maintained. This creates a unique niche in the resort business on Bonaire for the vacationer who wants a small dedicated resort. The Carib Inn’s guest list is made up of people who desire exactly what the Carib Inn offers.
