Bonaire, a Caribbean island, is a special municipality of the Netherlands. While Dutch is the official language, more residents speak Papiamento as their first language. The island consists of just two towns: Kralendijk, the capital, and Rincon. Bonaire is committed to nature conservation, with pristine coral reefs, flamingo sanctuaries, and a marine park that is popular with divers. Tourism, particularly ecotourism, is a vital industry.
