Our guide, Juan Carlos, really brought the history of the hacienda and its former occupants to life. His English is excellent, and even my 11 and 9 year old kids enjoyed hearing about the life of the husband, wife, and two daughters in the San...More

Beautiful gardens and great guides, who give great insight into the history of the region, just not into the history of the hacienda.

The museo is a wonderful escape from the city. In March it was lush and shaded. It's most comparable to a botanic garden, but the old buildings from the estate add a unique flavor. Don't forget to bring your camera - there's plenty of photo...More

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.
