The Island Of Dolls a.k.a. "La Isla De La Menucas"
If you visit Xochimico, just south of Mexico City, you'll find Isla de las Munecas a.k.a. "The Island of the Dolls." Don Julian Santana Barrera once found a little girl in the river who had drowned, and a while after her death he found a floating doll in the river. To honor her, he hung the doll in the tree, and over the years he found more dolls, convincing him that each one held the spirit of a dead little girl. Hundreds of headless, tattered and torn dolls now hang in the trees, and Julian has since passed on. He was found dead in the same spot that he once found that little girl long ago. less

Researching then writing about 7 of the scariest places in the world is not something I'd recommend for an evening activity. I've had my fair share of scares for the season, and I don't plan on visiting a single haunted house or Halloween event! Scary locations, spooky houses, and historical sites seem to be everywhere, but there are a handful that stand out more than others. All of the stories behind each one of the places I've highlighted here are haunting, chilling, and, sometimes, downright terrifying. They are not myths, nor are they the result of legends. Each one has a true story, some of which are almost unbelievable. I've included a basic synopsis of each spooky destination, but be sure to click on the links for more information as many of them go further in depth! - By Nadia Carriere
