Carnival in Bonaire is a grand celebration! From January to March, many people are caught up in the festivities. Carnival is one of the most important events of the year for many. The Caribbean Bonairian carnival consists of various components, including parades, festivities, and children’s carnival. The two most attended activities are the grand parades, also known as the “Marcha Grandi.” It’s no wonder that it’s a huge celebration in Bonaire and has a significant impact on the population. Carnival is a Catholic holiday, and approximately 78% of the population is Catholic. The burning of King Momo signifies the end of the Carnival festivities. Afterward, the period of fasting can begin. Feliz Karnaval!

“Bon dia tur hende i bon bini na dushi Boneiru!
My name is Casper Douma and I am a photographer. Since 2014 I’ve been living on this beautiful island, surrounded by a fringing reef. At first glance, you may see mostly cacti and drought, but Bonaire is a little gem if you get to know it better. I would like to take you on one of my photography tours to show you all the special places of Bonaire. In small groups of maximum 4 people I give you a unique look at the beauty of Bonaire. Became curious? Take a look at my website! I wish you a lot of fun on beautiful Bonaire.”
