Question SAFEST MARINA IN THE ABC's - Aruba Bonaire or Curacao???

Hello.
We are currently in the leeward islands, and plan to sail south for the summer. (Avoid Hurricane season, and see something new. We are deciding between Aruba, Bonaire & Curacao as a destination. We need to leave the boat on the dock for about 6 weeks, (unattended) and have some concerns with security, etc.

For the seasoned sailors, and cruisers, which marinas do you recommend? I would much prefer somewhere less expensive, but with gated security. Perhaps even a 'yacht management' where someone can check on the boat twice a week. (Lines, fenders, bilges, etc)

Any leads would be helpful.

R.

Harbor Village and Plaza are two places in Bonaire that I
would leave my boat.

Spanish Water in Curacao is a fully enclosed incredibly well protected harbor. If you are comfortable leaving your boat on a mooring...
