Its name means “Graveyards” because it was built close to two old cemeteries – and as we know from the stories above, this is very likely to lead to stories of hauntings. Panteones doesn’t let us down. In the tunnel between Panteones and Tacuba stations, ghostly knocks on the walls have been heard in the pitch black, and shadowy lumps appear and disappear when workers approach them.

On the line of 2 of Mexico City's metro service is the now-infamous Panteones station. Its name refers to the two cemeteries situated in the near vicinity. Screams are often heard along the tunnels of the station apart from shadowy figures lurking in and out of dark corners and sounds of footsteps emerging out of walls.

In 1778, Don Bernabé Antonio de Zepeda, a miner from Matehuala began to explore the Sierra de Catorce and discovered the outcrops of the rich Veta Grande, in which he sank the Guadalupe shaft that produced a great amount of red minerals along with abundant green and white silver... By 1920, Real de Catorce was nearly a ghost town and the trolley and train were removed Although ASARCO, in 1926, and Fresnillo, in 1937, evaluated the major vein structures, a resurgence of mining activity did not take place until 1942 when a small cyanide plant was constructed and operated for about ten years.
- Hawkes, Logan. "Real de Catorce. Ghost town in the clouds...". Mexico Less Traveled.com. Last Planet Media. Retrieved 26 August 2015.
The town was founded around 1770 after a man named Ventura Ruiz stumbled across a rich deposit of silver while searching for his lost horse... Why the silver mines are no longer a going concern is a matter of speculation. Some say the silver simply dried up. Others say the mining 'disturbs the gods', which caused much 'bad luck'. A few say the mines are haunted. One local legend has it that a ghost (the locals call him El Jergas) leads miners away from their fellow workers underground and into remote areas of the dark mines. The outcome, however, is a good one, because apparently the phantom miner is pointing the way to another vein of silver.

Veinte años antes, Aguirre Pech organizaba “el turismo del brujo” en Catemaco, en una época en donde los brujos practicaban magia blanca utilizando las recetas ancestrales para la cura de males físicos y sentimentales. Aguirre Pech tomó la estafeta de “Brujo Mayor” y a partir de ahí comenzó la promoción de esta actividad que atrajo a políticos, artistas, deportistas y a la población en general. Se dice que Aguirre Pech vendió su alma al diablo en el cerro del Mono Blanco, con lo cual obtuvo poderes diabólicos bajo el mote de “El Brinco de León” hasta 1982, cuando falleció.

So Kristin went on vacation with some friends to Mexico, and while they were there, they visited a Mayan temple at Chichén Itzá, where Mayan sacrifices took place. They even used to have competitions where the captain of the winning team would get beheaded as a sacrifice to the Gods; and it wasn’t a bad thing…you wanted it to happen, because it was an honor. Well, Kristin’s friend, Adam, thinks he might have picked up a Mayan ghost…and it doesn’t seem to friendly.
