Default Island of the dead dolls

The Island of Dead Dolls, or La Isla de las Muñecas started with Don Julián Santana, a hermit, who lived on the island for fifty years. He believed it was haunted by a little girl who drowned in the river while visiting. Whenever he saw a doll floating by the canal he got it and put it on a tree, to appease the spirit and protect him from evil. He soon turned the island into a shrine dedicated to the girl.
He was found dead in 2001 by his nephew in the same canal the girl died in. It is believed voices were calling him into the water. Each doll is supposed to be filled with the paranormal energy of the girl. They are also said to move and whisper. While visiting the island, you should bring a doll, hard candy, and a candle to appease the spirit. You need permission from Don Julián's nephew Anastasio Velasquez to enter the island.
