Isla de las Munecas. The trees of this island near Mexico City are strung with hundreds of dolls. The island’s only inhabitant, Don Julian Santana, discovered the body of a girl in one of its canals more than 50 years ago. He found a doll floating in the same water and, in tribute, hung it on a tree—the first of thousands he would string up until 2001, when he drowned in the same canal. Some believe the dolls, are evil; others believe they safeguard the island.
