More than 2000 mules and donkeys live in Santorini. Before 1960 donkeys were the main transportation means on the island and their main work was to move building materials from the port to the top of caldera. There has been a great debate about the working conditions of the donkeys where many animal welfare organisations try to boycott against their use. However, local owners and authorities claim to have upgrade the conditions adding extra shadow and watering points for the mules. I strongly believe that this traditional way of transportation needs to be supported. However, if you decided to use the donkeys to have a ride please don't do it if you are more that 80 kilos
