Hacienda Mundaca was built by Fermín Mundaca de Marecheaga, a pirate and slave trader that sought refuge on the island after fighting against the British Navy in 1860. The hacienda includes walls, arches, exotic plants, gardens, birds breeding place, cattle and orchard. It is located on the road to Garrafon, 3.5 kilometers before Playa Lancheros and Playa Paraíso.
Both Fermín Mundaca y Marecheaga and “La Trigüena” were real life persons; the former was born in Spain and the latter on Isla Mujeres. Without knowing it, they wrote a love story that has become part of the cultural tradition of the islanders.
Thanks to this great love story, Isla Mujeres has gradually become an ideal spot for newlyweds. Its unique beauty, quietness and hospitality make it a perfect place for people in love, who will certainly hear about the romantic legend created around the lives of these two local characters.
