We had been to Isla 4 times and had never come here. It is nice place to come and take a walk and see some history. I think they are building a new entrance off the other side of the park. Good place to get photos and explore in the cool shade. There must have been some kind of zoo... More

HM is a run-down 2 storey building of 3 rooms containing some quite interesting but very faded photos of Isla Mujeres in earlier times, but the notes all in Spanish. The 'garden' is overgrown, you have to wade through clouds of mosquitos and to be honest, I just don't think you gain anything. Sure, there are some giant iguanas, and... More

It is nice to go walk through the grounds for the exercise. It has some interesting structures to look at. It is not very expensive to get in, and hopefully they use that money for improved signage, etc.

If you enjoy history, it's worth a visit. A little run down, but there's cool things to see like the old structures, crocodiles, etc.

Walking around the hacienda grounds is great. Fairly well maintained, nice walking paths. The only thing lacking were informational signs. What I learned about the pirate Mundaca was on the internet. There were very few signs explaining what you were looking at. His tomb is located in the cemetery near Playa Norte, but I had to ask about it. It... More

I think we missed some of the grounds when we went, but we had fun wandering around, walking down the path through the stone arches and garden ruins. It was somewhat dark, quiet, and creepy but very cool to see. Don't think of it as a museum or monument - it's not. It's a bunch of old ruins which is... More

It's infested with iguanas but the place and the story behind it is pretty cool. I really enjoyed looking at the mansion...you can sort of picture everything.

Good thing the entrance was cheap. The grounds are what are really interesting, and we would have easliy missed some of the developed garden if we didn't follow a poorly maintained path. This would have been beautiful at one time, and could be again. No english signage, and the spanish signage is in poor shape, some unreadable. Some huge iquanas!

I discovered this place whilst volunteering at Isla Animals. I was curious as to what it was so I paid the 20 pesos and went to explore. I'm still not exactly sure what I saw as there were no posts or brochures explaining what everything was. The ruins were beautiful and the pond appeared to be well kept up. I... More

The walk through the grounds was very nice but I wished there was some sort of interpretive signs or a pamphlet that told you a bit more about what you were seeing.
