Bonaire Launches Social Media Bucket List Contest



Bucket List
downloadEver had the dream of scuba diving or snorkeling while being surrounded by schools of fish, turtles and pristine coral reefs? How about spending a week dining at premium restaurants that range from Mediterranean, Italian, Dutch and French cuisine?
Bonaire is giving people the opportunity to enter a contest that can make one of their lifelong dreams come true. Tourism Corporation Bonaire (TCB) partnered with one of their major airline partners, Delta Air Lines and have launched a Bonaire Bucket List social media contest. The sweepstakes is open to contestants now through September 25, 2016.

“TCB always utilizes the latest trends, and incorporates social media as part of our strategic plan to promote Bonaire,” commented Maurice Adriaens, Director of Tourism Corporation Bonaire. “The objective of this contest is to build further awareness of Bonaire’s dive/snorkel and culinary product that we have to offer our visitors, while supporting Delta’s airlift to Bonaire at the same time. We’re encouraging people to share a photo of what is on their Bonaire bucket list, and that they need to experience at least once in their lifetime. In return, we’ll have the opportunity to make one of our lucky contestant’s Bonaire bucket list come true.”

To enter, contestants must upload a photo of a dive/snorkel site or a restaurant that is on their Bonaire bucket list to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
