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.

Es una inmersión a poca profundidad y puedes disfrutarla sin tener mucha experiencia como buceador. Aparte de apreciar y poder ver diferentes peces, el entorno creado con las estatuas sumergidas es único e incomparable. Merece la pena visitarlo.
