The Island of the Dolls is located just outside Mexico City.
Visiting this creepy yet popular spot will introduce you to thousands of broken down, worn out, and generally creepy dolls. The dolls hang from trees and have been nailed to various structures on the island.
According to local lore, the island’s former caretaker discovered a dead girl in the canal bordering the island. Soon after the discovering he started collecting the dolls to appease the young girl’s spirit.
The man was found dead in 2001 in the exact spot he claimed to have seen the dead girl years earlier.
