There really isn't much to see here. We walked in and were charged $2 US. There is one building, 2 buildings that are now in ruins and several cages that have nothing in them. We were a little disappointed. If they stepped up their game and cleaned the place and maybe offered a tour that explained what you were looking... More

Historically, this place is fabulous, but the absence or resources to restore and maintain it is heartbreaking. If I were wealthy, I would replant the gardens, restore the obviously lovely landscapes around the lake, adding places for the public to sit and trails to walk. It would be a perfect arboretum and botanical garden, and more focus on the history... More

It was a nice place to walk around, it was cheap to get into. There were nothing in the cages when we went there and that was ok for me ( not big on zoo's, don't like to see anything caged up or trapped in). They have a lot of pictures of the Isla from 60s & 70s that are... More

I'm glad I saw it but it's not something I would consider a must see. My husband and I both really like history so it appealed to us.

Very run down, not much to see anymore. There was an entrance fee but it seems that everything has been let go. We didn't see many people there, tourist or staff.

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
