10 Cheap Vacations For Expensive Times

The middle child of the ABC islands, Bonaire is lesser known but equally gorgeous. A "special municipality" in the Netherlands after the Netherlands Antilles broke up last October, Bonaire draws flights from Continental and Delta to its Flamingo International airport and, like Aruba, considers the summer its offseason -- which means most of the bed and breakfasts and vacation rentals the island relies on for accommodations will be open.

Bonaire is extremely environmentally conscious and has dedicated itself to becoming carbon neutral within the next two years. Many of its activities reflect that. The beach is the biggest draw, but snorkeling, kayaking, bird-watching, hiking and horseback riding are just some of the available ecotourist options.

The average temperature hovers around 82 degrees and there's 12 hours of sunlight. The bad news is that it's going to be much warmer during the summer. The good news is that, with only about 60,000 people on the island at any one time, only the flamingos will see you sweat.

"It's a great place to go if you have a summer wedding and want to go on a honeymoon or if you want to go somewhere exotic," Banas says.
