good place to visit, be sure to get a local or a guide to walk you through. It is really interesting!
I have to admit that I did enjoy the little zoo....I know it seemed very bad for the animals, but I did like it......now it is still a nice place to walk and see some nature. Isla has become full of concrete and it is hard to find good wildlife...but Mundaca offers that. Nice green space and you can count... More
We visited the grounds on our last trip to Isla in 2011, and it was breath taking. Now, 2014 - it has fallen into a state of disrepair. The lagoon was seriously flooded and there was very little wildlife to witness. There were 3 crocodile held in a cage with very little water & a Boa Constrictor in another. Not... More
This is probably the only true historic site on the island. We stopped there because it was on our way to Punta sur and we were in a golf cart on a rainy day. There is a small admission fee and the grounds were large (make sure you take the unmarked path near the lagoon/ burial monument - it takes... More
We have been to Isla Mujeres 3 times and hadn't gone to Hacienda Mundaca.

We would have enjoyed staying... More
Run down, no staff support. pay a few bucks and you are on your own. follow a trail past some reminants of a building or two, few walls, garden pools (where the mesquito's breed!). have a python in a cage, then saw a large snake skin shed on the ground!! bugs attacked us and we left without seeing it all....

It is only 20 pesos, so if for no other reason, you should stop by to see the place as it would have been. Story goes, it was built for the love of a rich person, best on the island. She however spurned him for another man, so it was never lived in by the pair. Not sure it was... More
this is not mainstream by any stretch of the imagination. But, if you like quaint, quiet, and beautiful natural areas, you will love this self-guided walking tour. The restored residence of Mundaca the pirate is really fascinating, especially about how he hosted the wives and families of other famous pirates :)
If you do not care about local customs and history stay in town or on the beach. If you are curious about Isla and it's inhabitants it is worth a half hour.
