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.

Not really worth the trip per se, if you are bored, by all means check it out but we did not find it very impressive.

Hacienda Mundaca is the site of the former dwelling of a pirate. There are stone ruins and trails but very little in the way of explanatory material. It costs 20 pesos to visit (less than $2).

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!
