History is cool, but.....

The history behind the Hacienda Mundaca is super neat and the architecture is beautiful! You pay a small amount to get inside the "park." There really isn't a lot to look at... read more

Not much there besides some crumbling foundations, unkempt grounds & some Cayman in a cage that were in shameful condition or should I say un-condition.

There is very little to look at here and no guides or guidebooks. Not worth a visit even if it was free. Definitely not good for kids. Go snorkeling by Mia Reef instead!

This was a big disappointment. There is nothing really to see. The grounds are not well kept at all. Not not recommend making a trip here.

The history behind the Hacienda Mundaca is super neat and the architecture is beautiful! You pay a small amount to get inside the "park." There really isn't a lot to look at... some animals, some old buildings and lots of walking around. Worth a look, but nothing spectacular.

We had difficulty finding like some other reviewers. It is behind a large retaining wall and it would seem that considerable effort has been made in constructing a number of shop/catering units under a very high wooden beamed roof covered in traditional palm leaf thatching covering a very large area. There are brand new benches (still in plastic wrapping) for... More

The place is still very peaceful but please take mosquito spray. Once you hit the lower trails, they attack like watchdogs. If you go further back on the trails and sit quietly you can get some amazing photo opportunities.

The entrance fee is $2 or 20 pesos to go in and see really nothing but a display of how Mayan indigenous people lived and there is a main building which they open for you that gives you a few fact about the land and Isla Mujeres history. It took me all of 15 minutes to see everything. Then the... More

A little more run down that I expected but it was still a fun little stop. Bring bug repellent because we had to leave once we started getting attacked. It is across the street from The Bead Company and it is very easy to miss the entrance.

I was a little hesitant going here at first since the reviews recently say its a waste. It's about a 7 minute walk from Tortugranja though, so I figured it's worth it since I'm in the area. If you like ruins, its seriously great. Cheap to get in, and a nice walk around Mundaca's house, mayan huts, and a lake.... More

Drove around several time to try to find it. Found walls where it is supposed to be, but only found an entrance to some apts. and a large gazebo.
