Island of the Dead Dolls



Where can you find mutilated plastic children mounted on trees? La Isla de las Muñecas or Island of the Dolls in Mexico and one of the next stops on Destination Truth's crypto-tour of the world. Why dolls on trees? The man responsible didn't take this secret to his grave in 2001.

The gist of the story begins with Don Julián Santana who lived on the island for fifty years as a hermit despite having a wife and family. Shortly after arriving on the island he believed it to be haunted by a young girl who drowned while visiting the island. Some thought he fished dolls out of the canal because he was mad and was convinced they were real children. The truth is whenever he spotted a doll floating by he retrieved and placed it on a tree. Thus, appeasing the spirit and protecting himself from evil. One doll wasn't enough though. He soon turned the whole island in to a shrine dedicated to the poor young girl. He even traded home grown vegetables for old dolls to add to the collection.

Don Julián was found dead by his nephew in the very same canal the girl drowned in. Some believe there may have been foul play as Don often heard voices in the water calling to him. Beckoning him to come in. Since his passing, La Isla de las Muñecas has become one of Mexico's creepiest tourist attraction. Each doll is believed to be fueled with the paranormal energy of the girl. They supposedly move and whisper to travelers, offering an invitation to their home. Upon visiting the island, you must bring an offering of a doll, candles and hard candy to appease the spirit. But is she the only one? Some think Don Julián also haunts the property warding off visitors. I warn you not to trespass on La Isla de las Muñecas. It is private property and you need permission from Don Julián's nephew Anastasio Velasquez.

Will Josh and his crew encounter the spirit girl or discover La Isla de las Muñecas is nothing but another hot spot for "dark tourism" enthusiasts?

Just watched Destination Truth in OLN covering this island of dolls and they've collected evidence both audio and video that the island is indeed haunted.

The girl and don do haunt the island together. Don does not believe that tourists have HIS permission instead of his nephew, so that is why he threatens people.
