Are you a horror movie fan? Then the Island of Dolls may be the perfect holiday destination for you. 

Unmapped, a tourism company advertising on TripAdvisor, is offering a 13-day Day of the Dead tour, complete with a day trip to the Island of Dolls. 

According to Trip Advisor, 'Doll's Island' or 'Isla de las Muñecas' is an island dedicated to the lost soul of a girl who drowned in mysterious circumstances. The island is home to hundreds of dolls, hanging in the trees, scattered along the canal, and lining the walls of the island's shacks. 

Some visitors have reportedly claimed they have heard the dolls whispering to each other.

Fox News reports that a caretaker found the young girl who drowned in one of the island's canals and hung a doll in a nearby tree out of respect.

The caretaker then became haunted by the girl's ghost, and started hanging dolls all around the island to please her. 

Many of the dolls are missing heads and limbs and wear tattered clothes. The dolls are said to be haunted by the spirit of the drowned girl, and locals say they often move the heads and limbs they do have and have even been known to open their eyes.

The Island of Dolls has received a 4-star review on TripAdvisor, with many visitors commenting how "creepy" the experience was. 

"It is packed with dolls in various stages of decay and displayed in numerously disturbing ways. It is both beautiful and unnerving," one visitor wrote. 

"The creepy island will give you goosebumps...with the stories you already heard before leaving for this island, you will surely start believing in ghosts," wrote another.
