Now the average tourist visiting Aruba probably never leaves the beaches of Aruba. Those lucky few tourists who do venture off the beaten path to this Aruban treasure will be able to see and interact with some of the 130+ donkeys cared for at the Sanctuary.
On this episode I spend just under 30 minutes talking to Desiree and one thing that is abundantly clear from the interview is how much she loves the Donkey. So if you are traveling to Aruba and want to do something a bit out of the ordinary, the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary is a great place to start.
In this episode you will:
- Find out how and why the Donkey was first imported to Aruba
- Hear about the new Donkey Sanctuary being built
- Learn more about Donkeys than the average person will ever know
- Find out how you can adopt a Donkey
- Hear Desiree tell you why you should visit the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary
