  • Please support the sanctuary! Entry is free. The donkeys are well cared for here. You can buy food here to hand feed them ,all at your own risk. They also sell donkey souvenirs. Love them, enjoy!
  • That was a Great experience. I suggest this place for adults and kids. There is no admission fee and for a small fee you can feed the donkeys. Donkeys are very careful but still you need to be careful how you place your hand to feed them. Our daughter felt in love with the three legged Kamino and we decided to sponsor and donate the adoption fee for a year. Definitely on our list when we go back to Aruba.
