We were pretty disappointed with how run down this place was. Also, there wasn't any information to guide you through what you were seeing. There were ruins, a replica mayan home, but other than that not much to see.

We are garden people. We enjoyed the gardens and what was left from Mundaca's structures. Really buggy. Wear spray.

With all the stories about the pirate Mundaca this place could have been pretty amazing. Truth is that is in huge need of repair. The pathways are eroding. No signage to tell you what you are looking at. Not even a map of the property...More

An old hacienda in severe disrepair, covered in garbage, a real eyesore and while I feel bad for the employees who sit there to collect money there is truly nothing to see. Not expensive but time on holiday is valuable so don't spend it here.

Actually been years since we went inside the property so maybe I ought not review, but this is just one past visitor's advice. OK, the property was owned but never occupied by the legendary pirate Mundaca. Heck, he never even got much of anything built....More

We were very disappointed in how much trash was all along the walkways. Their was also natural debris all along the walks, which could easily have been raked and cleared.

My husband and I visited this place quite a few years ago, and it was rundown but still had some appeal - animals, some gardens, a few ruins. We went yesterday with our grown kids and young grandchildren. It is a dump! Overgrown, falling apart,...More
