Hcienda Mundaca is in very poor condition. The grounds have not been kept up and there really wasn't much to see here. We were hoping for some facts and information about the Hacienda and the Pirate Mundaca, but there were no signs nor information about the Hacienda. Sure it was only $2 to get in, but pretty disappointing.

I visited Hacienda Mundaca last year and really enjoyed learning some of the history of the island. I wanted to share it with some friends on our visit this year. As stated in some of the reviews, it is run down, but if you can look beyond that and look at the pictures and some of the gardens and picture... More

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 to the Hacienda: main entrance arch and some rubble here and there, and I mean... More

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

It only cost $20 pesos per person but really wasn't worth the stop. The supposed gardens are overgrown with no appeal. There are many lguanas some as big as cats! They run fast and a few came right at us which was slightly scary. The house has some historical information on the walls that was hard to read with non... More

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 photos of how things used to be, but everything was written in Spanish. A map... More

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.
