Maybe it's those big gentle eyes. Or the wacky grin and the ridiculous noise they make. Whatever it is, donkeys have a certain something that many people find completely endearing. The Aruba Donkey Sanctuary takes in injured and sick wild donkeys, providing care and a permanent home. This is a great place to spend a couple hours, especially if you're an animal lover or a kid (and if you're not either, that may have changed by the time you leave!). The donkeys love visitors, especially those with a handful of carrots or apples. Walk all the way to the patio before handing out the treats to avoid an avalanche of enthusiasm while feeding.
- Daily 9am-4pm
- Free; Donations Appreciated
- Best Attractions & Activities: "Before you leave, stop by the little refreshment stand for a cold drink or a unique souvenir T-shirt and contribute to this wonderful nonprofit organization."
- Recommended as Best Attractions & Activities Because: Donkey Sanctuary Aruba has been creating a safe and stable home for Aruba's stray donkeys since 1997 and their accomplishments are worth a visit.
