The place is still very peaceful but please take mosquito spray. Once you hit the lower trails, they attack like watchdogs. If you go further back on the trails and sit quietly you can get some amazing photo opportunities.

A little more run down that I expected but it was still a fun little stop. Bring bug repellent because we had to leave once we started getting attacked. It is across the street from The Bead Company and it is very easy to miss...More

I was a little hesitant going here at first since the reviews recently say its a waste. It's about a 7 minute walk from Tortugranja though, so I figured it's worth it since I'm in the area. If you like ruins, its seriously great. Cheap...More

We stopped to check it out and it was very run down and unkept. Don't waste your time here. Just a few run down buidings and no animals.

We visited the Hacienda and the grounds are very unkept. It was interesting to see some of the photos from Mundaca's home, but there wasn't much else to see. We saw a few empty cages that seem to have housed some type of animal, but...More

The area looks very un kept. There are empty overrun cages. The gardens need some work, there is no signage so we could not tell what this property was actually used for. After getting home, I did find a review from 2007. Back then it...More

We enjoyed the hacienda very much. It is a shame that it is in such disrepair. It would be beautiful fixed up. The "clock" garden reminded me of the story "The Secret Garden". It has potential. In the States there would be fund raisers and...More
