Island of the dead dolls, the haunted doll island Mexico

Don Julian Santana Barrera originally owned the Island of the Dolls. It is filled with dolls suspended from trees and buildings that are covered in cobwebs and insects. This place was named in the 1950s when its owner started to hang them for protection from evil spirits. Santana lived next to the Barrio de la Asuncion. He used to drink pulque after that, selling his vegetables. Then, due to superstitions, he began to preach the Bible and was expelled from that sector.

Doll island story — Legend has it that a young girl was drowned in the lilies of a canal. Her body was later found on the Santampa chinampas banks. Santana started to experience strange situations, and he placed dolls he found in the trash or Cuemanco's canals with the hope that they would scare the little girl. She would cry out, "I want my doll!" Santana also found a doll that was floating around nearby. He assumed it belonged to the deceased girl and hung it from the tree to show his respect.  When the owner died, he was at the exact spot where the girl had died. 

Eco-tourists saved the island in 1987 and covered it with water lilies. The chinampa has been a popular tourist destination ever since, especially after Santana's death. 

Island of the dolls movie — After Emilio Fernandez, a Mexican filmmaker filmed Maria Candelaria in the area. Dolores del Rio, Pedro Armendariz, and Dolores del Rio were the protagonists. Numerous international and local media outlets have featured articles about the las muñecas, including The Huffington Post and Travel Channel and ABC News and ABC News.

The muñecas (muneca meaning doll) can still be found on the haunted doll island, which can be reached by boat. It was featured on both the Travel Channel's Ghost Adventures and Amazon Prime's Lore. BuzzFeed Unsolved also featured the baby doll island. Shane Madej stated that he believes in the legends surrounding the island of isla de las muñecas xochimilco.
