This is not a "typical" tourist place and it's fascinating,fun to discover. It is run down, no one to explain what you are seeing however that just adds to the mystic of the place. Biggest iguanas I have ever seen along with some amazing architecture...More

This is a fairly interesting place but with practically no signage it was difficult to know what you were seeing. Could definitely benefit from an overseer, some brochures or explanatory signs.

It is a shame but this place has fallen in disrepair the gardens and the grounds could be beautiful and inviting but if you have interest in Pirates you you have to go

As it stands, the hacienda is an abandoned property with an archeological aura about it. The indigenous habitation structure and various animal cages suggest an effort is being made to give tourists a reason to visit. For now, and for 20 pesos, it's an opportunity...More

We expected to see some really cool ruins here but were highly disappointed. There were a few ruins but what it really was...an old abandoned zoo/park. Empty cages and broken down buildings from the 20th century. Nothing too exciting here.

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...More

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...More
