Apple Vacations offers travelers more than 40 destinations, all with their own colorful legends and histories. For those wanting to explore the chilling and mysterious side of these destinations, here are some haunted travel options courtesy of Apple Vacations:
Rose Hall Great House, Jamaica
Perhaps the most famous haunted destination in the Caribbean is the Rose Hall Great House in Jamaica. This landmark Georgian mansion sits high on a hill in Montego Bay with sweeping views of the ocean. In the early 1800s, it was owned by Annie Palmer, whose three husbands died suspiciously. Countless slaves also met their death due to her torture. The locals called her The White Witch due to her voodoo practices. Today, Annie, who was killed in her bed in a slave uprising in the 1830s, has been seen walking the halls of the Great House. Learn all about Annie during Apple Vacations’ Bewitched Tour, as guides tell the chilling stories by candlelight.
Iolani Palace, Honolulu, HI
The Hawaiian island of Oahu is a well-known hot spot for supernatural activity. For over 15 years, Oahu Ghost Tours has operated creepy and haunted guided tours across the island. Explore the ancient stories of the Hawaiian history and culture, the ghostly side of downtown Honolulu, and ceremonial events at native sites. Be sure to bring a camera! Many guests have observed unexplained orbs and events at these sites.
The original Pirates of the Caribbean
While Nassau, Bahamas might be known for modern hotels and colorful casinos, you can learn all about its pirate history on the Historic Tour of Nassau City. Perhaps the most notorious pirate was Blackbeard, who would terrorize sailors on the Atlantic and Caribbean in the 1700s. Nassau was a famous pirate hideout during this time, and it’s said that Blackbeard himself haunts the Old Fort of Nassau.
Plaza de Catredal, Havana, Cuba
Step back in time and visit the historic Plaza de la Catedral in Old Havana, Cuba. Witnesses have reported seeing a nun on the roof of the Cathedral. At times, she floats off the roof onto the streets of the Plaza and walks toward bystanders only to disappear as she gets closer.
Between the real pirates of the Caribbean, the mighty, but violent, legacies of the Aztec and Mayan Indians, and the ancient stories of native Hawaiians, Apple Vacations’ portfolio is full of locations with mystical and/or spooky tales. Book your vacation package today!
