Not much to see here. There is supposed to be some history pertaining to the pirate Mundaca, but it wasn't clear. There are some buildings that we think the pirate lived in but there was nothing to indicate when that would have been. The grounds are bigger than you would first imagine and have some beauty to it. For a... More

Nice place to visit for a quick trip back in time. Very interesting to imagine what life was like back in the day.

Well, if you want to enjoy a silent place all for yourself, here's the place to be. Place is run down, not much information and nothing in English. There is an alligator in a small pool and a lot of empty cages. We saw no other animals except a lot of mosquitos. Entrance fee of 20 pesos.

We were at Isla animals so we thought we would go to Hacienda Mundaca. It just does not live up to the Legend at all. The stone house is quite small and not in the least bit fancy. The property is not well maintained. There is no wow factor at all. Dave your twenty pesos.

It's a shame that such a beautiful place has been allowed to get into such a sad state. This park could be an absolute jewel and great attraction.

My husband and I decided to stop here on our visit to the island. We went after some rain had hid the area over the past couple days so i'm not sure if that was part of the problem. The initial path down we saw ten different iguanas and a crocodile enclosure. When we got to the first building it... More

This was a interesting stop that is worth taking for a few pacos. It brought a bit of reality to the story of Mundaca. It won't take long, and is a nice little walk.

We went to Hacienda Mundaca on the hottest day possible. I felt like my face was melting off my skull! i enjoyed seeing all of the building ruins. The grounds of the plantation itself were huge. I was disappointed to see the animals in the cages and how poorly they were kept. I almost tripped on an alligator enclosure! It... More

Not a bad quick stop on the golf cart tour. It is located about mid-island and there is a small entrance fee. You can see the types of homes the Mayans used to have on the island.
