    Aruba on a Budget: 5 Things to Do for Free




    Beautiful white-sand beaches, striking wind-sculpted landscapes, and genuinely friendly people make Aruba One Happy Island. Vacation travel is supposed to be fun and help relieve stress. Take some of the stress off of your wallet with these free things to do while you’re exploring the beautiful island of Aruba - Opens a dialog .

      Make funny new friends at the Donkey Sanctuary on Aruba.

      Donkey Sanctuary Aruba

      Although not native to Aruba, donkeys have been on the island for over 500 years, and were the primary mode of transportation before cars were introduced. Sweet, yet stubborn, many of the donkeys at this sanctuary absolutely love to be petted and all of them love to be fed treats. If you want to make some four-legged friends, feel free to bring along some apples or carrots to share. This wonderful sanctuary has no entrance fee, but if you are feeling generous you can donate to a worthy cause and get to spend 15-30 minutes cuddling and/or hugging one of these friendly creatures.

      For more animal encounters, we recommend the Embassy Suites by Hilton Aruba Resort - Opens a dialog , located within walking distance of the Bubali Bird Sanctuary. This all-suite hotel is also walking distance to the beach and a fantastic base for your adventures in Aruba.
