Bonaire has a wonderful tropical climate with temperatures that are fairly constant throughout the year. With maximum temperatures of around 30-32 degrees Celcius that are reached quite quickly during the day. In the evening, the temperature slowly drops to around 23 to 25 degrees Celcius.
Under the influence of the Caribbean Sea and the trade wind, there is little variation in temperatures. In the winter months these two elements ensure that the land is warmed up a little. In the summer these elements ensure that the land cools down a little.
But beware, it never gets really cool on Bonaire.
