Donkey Sanctuary: Get ready to be overwhelmed with cuteness. Visit Donkey Sanctuary Aruba for a 30-minute session of hugging, petting and feeding the friendliest, loving donkeys. The sanctuary is a nonprofit organization devoted to saving the island's donkeys and educating locals and tourists on their care.
Ayo Rock Formations: You will explore the Ayo Rock Formations, where you will find walking trails with several narrow tunnels all around. Your guide will walk the trails with you and give you some history on the rock formations and the island's earliest settlers. You will find ancient paintings carved into rocks by Caiquetio Indians from the Arawak Tribe.
Natural Bridge: Stop at one of Aruba's most visited attractions, the Natural Bridge. Where once stood the magnificent Natural Bridge, naturally formed by coral limestone, before it collapsed in 2005, you can still see its ruins. There is another small bridge next to the ruins that is called the Baby Bridge, where you can walk on and take pictures.
Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins: See the remnants of a long-abandoned gold mill that processed gold ore during Aruba’s gold rush in the nineteenth century. You can get some stunning photos of the remains and backdrop of windswept waves crashing high along the coastline.
Alto Vista Chapel: Visit the church and have an opportunity to sit in the church. This stop is a very spiritual place for the native inhabitants.
