After several visits to the island, I finally got to "tour" the Hacienda Mundaca grounds. It was only a couple of dollars to gain access. There was any information regarding how you should walk around to see everything. The buildings did have some old faded...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.

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...More
