We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of this hacienda and all of its historical dark intrigue. It is in good hands under government rule and is a museum, park. The rooms in the original house are quite interesting with paintings of the first Spanish residents.

My son has been twice and Carlos was there both times. We were the only visitors when I went. I want to emphasize that there is no cost for the tour and the guide is dependent on tips.

Carlos speaks excellent English. Perhaps your hotel can call for you and get the information you wish. And reserve Carlos for you.
