Isla de las Muñecas photos

So there is this place in Mexico called Isla de las Muñecas, or “Island of the Dolls.” It is outside of Mexico City, and it is a bit difficult to get to, but it is well worth the trip–I guarantee you will not see anything like it anywhere else on Earth.

How to get there? First, you need to drive an hour so to Xochimilco, a small town with a system of canals that tourists and locals alike enjoy. You basically rent a gondola for a few hours and float around the canals with the other vistors. If you pay extra, the boat dude will take you to “Isla de las Muñecas,” small island that w

as inhabited by a guy who somehow became obsessed with a girl and dolls. (It was hard to understand the whole speech–something about a girl who died, a guy who became obsessed with her, yadda yadda. Hard to know what was true and what was embellishment.) He collected these dolls for many years and attached them by various means to the structures on the island.

The island is a bit creepy, so if you are into that sort of thing, put it on your list of things to do one day.

Anyway, an assortment of photos to enjoy.
