Full description

When in Cancún, Mexico, discover Cancun Underwater Museum of Art (MUSA). This site has both a collection of art and an artificial reef created to help natural reefs recover. Learn the background of this museum, which began as a small project back in 2009 with only three statues. First, head to Manchones Reef on a boat, where you will see an impressive gallery with hundreds of coral-covered statues standing 30 feet under the sea. Marvel at the over 470 life-sized sculptures on hand. On your second dive, witness the breathtaking colors of a natural coral reef which is also home to turtles and lots of colorful fish, before concluding your exploration of this unique Cancún setting combining art and marine life.

It is a shallow dive and you can enjoy it without much experience as a diver. Apart from appreciating and being able to see different fish, the environment created with the submerged statues is unique and incomparable. It is worth visiting.
