  • This is an amazing gem to still have in the center of McAllen. Preserved from the 1920s, this historic house and property are filled with botanic specimens from around the world primarily South and Central America. The grounds are filled with a wide variety of sculptures. The historic house has been well-preserved. Rooms are filled with artifacts and informative displays perfect for visitors of all ages. A side shop has some reptile specimens and Taxidermy specimens. Fun for all ages, staff was well-informed everything was very clean. A complete departure from what you normally find in the valley.
  • Great place for birding, or for just going for a walk. $3 donation fee. The grounds are very beautiful. I went in January and it was still very green. There were birds everywhere, and they told me there was a blue bunting sighted recently. It really is a meditative, perfect nature walk. I didn't do anything in the building, regarding the history or family.
  • Not only is this a an great place to visit with the family but to also have the wedding of your dreams! Quinta Mazatlan offers beautiful landscapes and tropical views. Picture perfect for any wedding or event! Plus the staff is very attentive and helpful!
  • What a beautiful place. The old mansion is beautifully restored. The grounds and birds are wonderful.
  • Great family experience..nice and peaceful. Great place to walk and experience all the wonderful nature...I recommend it to those who don't want to be bored.pure fun.😊
