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

Off the beaten trail, and if you don't know where you are going you would miss it! It is something to see and if you go in you need to follow the trail off to the side and go down to the other end where...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.
