Did you know that ostriches lay the largest eggs of any bird species? Or that they only have two toes per foot? You can learn all kinds of fascinating – and trivial – facts of this sort during a day at the Aruba Ostrich Farm on the island's eastern coast.
In addition to trivia, the farm's tour guides will educate you on the survival instincts and mannerisms of the ostriches and emus that live at the farm, plus you'll get a chance to interact with them up close.
Recent vacationers especially enjoyed feeding the large birds, but said it's a quick stop. Those traveling with kids said this was an especially memorable experience for youngsters. Beware that the professional photos taken by the farm's photographer are not free. Meanwhile, others recommend bringing an umbrella for shade as there is none on the farm.
The Aruba Ostrich Farm is open daily, with guided tours available every half hour from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tours cost $14 per adult and $7 per child. Check out the farm's official website for more information. Other on-site facilities include a souvenir shop and a restaurant. You'll find the farm along the road leading to the Natural Bridge, just before Bushiribana.
