We were not bothered by any pan handlers and even saw a citizen call a policeman's attention to what he considered bothersome beggar. We took a very informative tour and was satisfied with the price and service.
We were surprised and pleased with this stop because it was always our opinion that Bonaire had very little scenery and nothing of interest to tour. Our estimation was wrong and we enjoyed this stop as much as the others.
This was my second visit to Aruba and one of my favorites. I love Aruba's $1.30 to $2.60 round trip public transportation system. We simply went to the bus station and road up the hotel coast and to Santa Cruz with the local citizens.
