World’s Creepiest Attractions – Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave, Belize

Travel & Leisure | Brave necro-tourists must reach this archeological site near San Ignacio via a guided hike that starts with a neck-deep swim in ice cold, pitch black water. Those with vivid imaginations are advised to stay back at the hotel. Mayans practiced human sacrifice here, as evidenced by the cave’s most startling skeleton: the Crystal Maiden, a teenage girl whose bones seem to sparkle.

Truly Creepy: If the bats and spiders don’t put you over the edge, the ancient ceramic bowls have “kill holes,” indicating they were used for bloodletting rituals.
