This island is known in Spanish language as "La Isla de la Muñecas". This Puppet Island is perhaps the most terrifying tourist attraction in Mexico. Located within an extensive network of canals south of Mexico City, the island if full of mystery and superstition.
Almost every tree on the island is "decorated" with old, mutilated dolls that give the impression that someone is always watching. The story of the began when Don Julian Santana moved there. Although he was married, he decided to live the last 50 years alone.
Don Julian used to say he was haunted by the ghost of the little girl who had drowned in one of the canals around the island. Some say he used to fish the dolls from the water because he thought they were real children. The truth was that he was collecting and placing them around his home as a shrine for the ghost that tormented him. At one point he even traded home grown fruit and vegetables for old dolls.
Ironically, in 2001, Don Julian Santana was found dead by his nephew, in the same canal that he said the little girl drowned in. Now his Island of the Dolls is one of the world’s weirdest tourist attractions. Some tourists who visited this place claim the dolls whisper and you must offer them a gift when you arrive on the island, just to appease their spirits.
