Donkey Sanctuary

Wildlife Reserve in East Coast

Make an ass out of yourself doting on these winsome critters, who will follow you around for attention and snacks. Originally brought to Aruba by the Spaniards, many donkeys went rogue when they were no longer needed on farms. Unfortunately they didn't fare well with the increase in automobile traffic on the island. The donkeys at the sanctuary are well taken care of: they are named, treated, fed, protected and loved. You won't be able to resist them!

The Donkey Sanctuary is located east of the airport. From Rte 1 in Barcadera, take Rte 4 north and turn right on Bringamosa.
