  • My husband and I visited this place quite a few years ago, and it was rundown but still had some appeal - animals, some gardens, a few ruins. We went yesterday with our grown kids and young grandchild...  more »
  • I love coming here. It shows a bit of Isla before all the hotels and growth. I understand Mundaca, the ex pirate who became the owner of almost 40% of the island, was an awful person, and maybe that i...  more »

  • Put simply, this is a tourist trap. The park was empty. A woman guarded the front to get 20 pesos per person. One you were inside there was a bunch of iguanas that took over the place. Zero maintenance on the park. The wildlife and vegetation has grown in and taken over what looks like the buildings and displays within the park. There's a bunch of bugs, so prepare to be eaten alive bug spray or not. Don't waste your time visiting this place. There is much more to see on the island.
  • Historic sites hidden down wandering paths. Chances for wildlife and great photos.
  • A really cool place to check out! It is unfortunately, very neglected. Also, make sure to take bug spray! I got eaten alive by mosquitoes. You'll see tons of iguanas. It's either $3 USD were $30 MXD. Well worth the few dollars if it helps to maintain or improve the place. Oh ya, the locals told me it doubled is a zoo or something at one point as well. Hence, the structure with bars.
  • This place is magical for me. It saddenes me to see how poorly mantained it continues to be, now that I have returned. however, this used to be the home of a retired pirate, and he used to own 40 % of the island. Can you imagine? So much history! Worth supporting.
  • It costs only $30, but much to see there also isn't really. However, it is surrounded by lizards, still with super many mosquitoes. The old "Ruins" are not really old, it seems in any case, moreover things looks like it would have been built up. You can look at it, but I wouldn't recommend it.
