We stopped by this place since my wife and I are both history fans. Neat walking through the sprawling estate, but it was way too "self-guided" for our taste. Not sure if we ended up seeing all the sights, but after wandering around for long...More

We liked the history and the atmosphere so much we went back two straight days to take pictures and read the history. The full story is worth the time to understand what you are looking at.

We had the whole place to ourselves, fun to wonder around and explore the ruins. Very reasonable 20 peso entrance fee, plenty of iguana watching too!

I had research things to do on the island before going and Hacienda Mundaca sounded interesting. We stopped in on the day we rented golf carts, paid our 2 bucks and in we went. The only thing we really saw were iguanas. Not much left...More

You pay a small $3 admission to stroll the grounds. It needs some upkeep. The garden path is worth the walk.
