An Underwater Museum near Cancun on the coast of Mexico. The British artist Jason deCaires Taylor has created an underwater sculpture garden near Cancun. It’s called the Museo Subacuático de Arte (MUSA) (Underwater Art Museum) and is created to created another underwater attraction to entice people away from the reefs, which are under stress.
There are more than 500 sculptures along the coast, which you can see at your leisure: in the south of Isla Mujeres, near Punta Cancun, and near Punta Nizuc.
Various tours are offered to visit the underwater museum. You can choose an excursion for snorkeling, but also for diving. So you can get closer to the artworks. And thus have a better experience. Although snorkeling is also very rewarding.
You can visit with a snorkel mask, where you float on the surface. Although diving is logically a better option. Then you get really close to the images and you can view them extra well.
