Don't know when it will reopen, but the city is renovating the hacienda and it is closed for the season. Check back - someone will undoubtedly post when it reopens. Meanwhile, you can always stop in and see the pups available for adoption at Isla...More

We drove by twice and the gates were locked and all the stores around it was closed so I don't think they are open anymore. After reading the reviews about the bugs, I'm kin of glad it was. It is a shame that it such...More

I don´t even know what it use to be or what was its purpose. Dirty ruin, it looks like abandoed lunapark with garbage, dirty water with mosquitos, roof the main house is falling apart, no information at all... By November 2018 they don´t charge entry...More

I realize that these are ruins, but the place is really run down. The added fixtures (lightrs, etc.) are broken and/or rusted. I would probably still go, but know the exchange rate. The person running the gate tried to charge me the "American Tax". Two...More

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.

It helps to ready up on the history of the island and back story of HAcienda Mundaca. It is a must but I don't think you will need to go back a second time.

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
