Aruba's Animal Encounters

Aruba is perfect for families who love animal encounters. The African ostrich has made Aruba its second home; the Aruba Ostrich Farm is home to some 80 big birds (including emu), each with its own quirky personality. The Donkey Sanctuary in Santa Cruz is home to more than 120 lovable animals, who are often eager to greet visitors with a wet kiss to the face. The Butterfly Farm is a great place for the entire family to experience the grandeur of these beautiful creatures; every so often it hosts an Attacus atlas, one of the largest moths in the world. Philip's Animal Garden offers close, educational encounters with boa constrictors, Bengal cats, alpacas, alligators, and more. Hundreds of exotic rescue animals call the garden home.

The Gold Mine Ranch offers horseback tours on well-groomed trails as well as on beaches on the northeast of the island for guests of all experience levels and ages. A visit to Wariruri Beach with Rancho la Ponderosa will give you a unique perspective on the untouched northern coast as you ride good-natured horses toward the setting sun. Rancho Daimari's private beach is popular with surfers, who love the big waves and remote location. On the edge of Arikok National Park, it's the perfect base for horseback exploration of towering sand dunes, secluded coves, natural pools, Andicuri Beach, and more.
