Den Laman Condominiums
With all amenities within foot-steps, Den Laman Condominiums has made your convenience their business.
Located on the island of Bonaire, Den Laman is an ideal location for those who value their creature comforts as much as they appreciate instant access to adventure and exploration. Each condominium offers a fully equipped kitchen, living area, living area with LCD-TV with surround sound system and more. All have balconies, many boasting spectacular ocean views. Whether your preference top side is kayaking mountain biking, bird watching or snorkeling, Den Laman’s Discover Bonaire Program offers the means to explore the highlights of the country’s natural treasures.
Dive Friends Bonaire, a PADI 5 Star dive operation located on property, offers easy day and night access via their private pier to Bari Reef, Den Laman’s house reef. Air and Nitrox tanks are available in 80 and 63 cft. Tanks are available 24/7 from both the pier location and at the drive-up location adjacent to their gear locker room and the Den Laman parking area.
The Dive Friends Bonaire facilities make it easy to dive on property or off at any of the 50+ shore dive sites running the length of Bonaire’s leeward coast. Once you arrive, simply gear up, pull on your booties, wade into chest deep water, slip on your fins and relax on your short surface swim (50 yards/meters of less) toward the drop off. Once descended, simply take your landmark (often the mooring buoy), make your dive, and on the way back, slowly head toward shore while enjoying the shallows where you are likely to find pods of squid and long nose needle fish hovering just below the surface, or the yellow headed jaw fish hiding in the coral rubble.
Boat diving adds another dimension to your dive experience on Bonaire, giving you the opportunity to visit sites to nearby Klein Bonaire, where the topography will be noticeably different, or other sites not accessible from shore. Dive Friends Bonaire offers two-tank boat morning dives departing daily, at 8:15 and one-tank afternoon boat dives (with a minimum of 4 divers) departing at 2:15 pm. Follow the dive guide or explore on your own, the choice is yours.
