The Poduska Family Celebrates 30 Years of Bonaire Visits at Carib Inn

Carib Inn was recently honored to have a special celebration last week with the Poduska Family, as they celebrated their 30th year of visiting Bonaire and the Carib Inn.

Here’s the story, from Mom (and now Grandma) Donna Poduska:

Thirty years ago, the Poduska family from Fort Collins, Colorado, were told by friends from work about a place called Bonaire.  Not only were they told the scuba diving was the best in the world but there was a place to stay called Bruce Bowker’s Carib Inn that was amazing.  The personalized treatment that you received as a guest at this place was unbelievable.  This was the beginning of what became an annual vacation that has lasted 30 years.  Always we have stayed at Bruce Bowker’s Carib Inn and they have become “family.”

Paul Poduska, the father, was the only certified diver when the Poduskas first started coming here, but throughout the years both the daughter and son were certified.  The son is an advanced diver while the daughter is a divemaster.  Then came the three grandchildren–one is certified and the 10-year-old twins this year did Discover Scuba Diving and will become certified next year.  The most amazing thing here is that they all have been certified in the different levels at “Bruce’s.”

Bonaire has become a place that offers everything that all ages can enjoy–rest, fantastic diving and great friends.  The Carib Inn is the place that allows great freedom, individualised attention and great instructors. The Poduska family will continue coming here because it is truly their “Second Home.”
