This was so fun. It was such a nice break from the diving and snorkeling. We spent about 2 hours here we laughed and laughed it was great. It is a non-profit and I love that they are caring for these abandoned and orphaned animals. When you go in you will immediately be surrounded by the donkeys who are looking... More

We went to the donkey sanctuary today after we spent the morning at jibe city in lac bay. Absolutely one of the most satisfying experiences I have ever had watching these wonderful friendly creatures come over to me for attention. At first I thought it was for food but I quickly realized, no, they want me to pet them and... More

We came to dive, but during a surface interval decided to take a visit to the Donkey Sanctuary, and it was well worth it! The donkeys are friendly and every-hungry for carrots. The drive through the park is easy and you'll make plenty of 4-legged friends along the way. The nursery area allows you to walk in and interact with... More

On an island known for its original laborers, the donkeys, there is a sanctuary that is home to well over 400 donkeys. Roaming free, they are fed, cared for, and given a life time home, free of danger from motorists who present the biggest threat to them. This past month we visited the sanctuary for the second time. We brought... More

This is a facility to rehab and protect the donkeys. $7 per person to enter there is a gift shop and picnic area. By a bunch of carrots when you enter to feed the donkeys. They are friendly and only mildly rude when looking for food and attention. It;s for a good cause and it;s something to do when not... More

In our first week long vacation to Bonaire we decided to visit the donkey sanctuary. The children loved it and the donkeys were so friendly and made us laugh as we drove through.

We did not expect it to be such a funny experience. Staff is very friendly and little donkeys so cute. When you take a ride through the sanctuary with a bag of carrots I can guarantee you one of the best memories from Bonaire!!

After 15 years of travelling to Bonaire, we finally got to visit the donkey sanctuary. The dedication and knowledge of the staff is amazing. The nursery area is so special to see the mommy's and their babies (there was a 5 day old baby when we were there). Driving through the sanctuary and seeing all the donkeys in their own... More
