There's nothing to see here except a bunch of weather worn-dolls nailed to random things. There are also two toilets with the least privacy in the world in the area. You can safely skip this.

This is a nice little trip is you want a boat ride. Apart from that it’s pretty boring. You see and few dolls. Get harassed by lots of people selling things

The trip to the dolls was equally as fun as reaching there. Do pack some drinks to enjoy on the trip as it can be a bit dull if you don't enjoy nature. The island itself was a bit eerie and great for photos, keeping in mind it's become a tourist attraction. It's about 3-4 hours trip and leaving from embercado Cuemenco was good as there was clear signage to indicate prices and just 1 representative to negotiate with!

This was a highlight of our trip to Mexico City. A few things to know: - it should be a 2 hour boat ride there, plus a 2 hour boat ride back (our ride was beautiful, didn't feel like 2 hours) - you should expect to pay $2,000 pesos for the boat ride - the entrance fee is $40 pesos each - do your research!! The real doll island is: - surrounded by bamboo fence - very difficult to see from the water - the boat ride is very peaceful and relaxing if you do not go to the tourist side of the boats - I would strongly suggest that you hire a guide, tours by locals to take you - This is not a nice place for young children! This is a spooky place, with a sad history,
