Nothing Says Exotic Like Cancun’s Underwater Museum

In Cancún, Play by Suzanne Koch

Skip the boring and quiet museums and dive into the waters of Cancun for a truly unique experience. 470 underwater statues make up the amazing Cancun Underwater Museum Musa, the largest artificial reef in the world. The museum was created in order to drive tourists away from the actual coral reefs which were beginning to experience wear and tear from an overflow of visitors. While the artificial reef area is located beside Manchones which is between the coast of Cancun and Isla Mujeres, the statues were created from actual residents of the nearby fishing village of Puerto Morelos that sits south of Cancun.


The three hour long tour provides an exhilarating 45 minutes of snorkeling where you’ll be able to marvel at the countless statues along with the natural marine life including schools of fish, turtles, stingrays and more. In addition to the underwater excursion, prepare to jet off to El Farito, a popular snorkeling destination off the coast of Isla Mujeres.

This top Cancun adventure is offered through Aquaworld, who offers up some of the most exciting tours in the Cancun and Riviera Maya area.
