Hop on a 4x4 all-terrain vehicle and explore Aruba’s north coast on this half-day guided tour. Get a little dirty as you ride along the rugged back roads, heading to the island’s seaside bluffs and beaches. Plus visit top sights such as the Alto Vista Chapel before taking a refreshing swim in the pool.

It's free and you just have to leave a donation. The volunteers are super sweet. My kids got to comb the donkeys and feed them. They have over 100 donkeys.

We took a break from the beach and visited this place. Kids loved feeding the donkeys and grooming them. Definitely recommend this spot when taking a break from the beach.

I have been coming to Aruba for the last 15 years & this was shamefully my 1ST time visiting Donkey Sanctuary Aruba!! Hidden secret! My partner & I stayed in Aruba for 8 days & we came back a 2nd time before heading to the airport to say farewell to the 121 +/- donkeys (181 total in Aruba)! We had rented a Jeep & the location is easy to get to by any type of car. I was blown away by the beauty of these animals & the well-maintained condition of this place. Excellent for families, couples, & animal lovers! You may pet, feed, brush, & take pics with the donkeys! Though no admission fee, they operate on donations, so don’t be an—ASS! The keepers are very friendly people & very hospitable. Grounds are well paved & can get hot depending on time of day. Come prepared with sunblock. We sat down in a nice shaded area with beautifully painted wooden chairs & overlook of the site. Gift shop is very cute & donkey-themed, & plenty of seating for a cold beer or snack. Bought my father a reasonably priced bottle of red Spanish wine—plenty of small local gift ideas or souvenirs you won’t find at other Aruban tourist stores. You may even “adopt” a donkey! This place is WORTH the drive if you are staying as far as Palm/Eagle Beach area! We will be back with our families next time!

We have been visitors of this beautiful country multiple times a year and never went to the sanctuary. Well! I am so happy we decided to go this time. It is an interactive experience. We brought apples with us as I know this is a treat for them. We cut them up and hand fed and brushed these beautiful gentle creatures. They were extremely lovable of course because we had food. I did leave a donation also as they are a sanctuary for healthy and those that need help. So if you do adventure out to see them leave a little something if you can.

We stopped in town and picked up two huge bunches of carrots. When we got here, the lady that runs it gave me a cutting board, knife, and bucket to chop them up for the donkeys. She was so nice. Gave us a brief history and just let us feed and pet the donkeys. The staff does an amazing job taking care of this big bunch. It is free but I would suggest leaving a donation. It's an expensive place to run since all of the hay has to be imported. I would definitely recommend a visit. (We just took a taxi.) I will be sure to come back on my next trip to Aruba!
