Fodor's Expert Review Cancún Underwater Museum
Locally known as MUSA, Cancún's Underwater Museum is made up of more than 400 lifelike statues sculpted by six artists. The stunning artworks, located off the shores of Punta Sam, Punta Nizuc, and Manchones Reef near Isla Mujeres, create an artificial habitat for marine life that can be viewed by divers, snorkelers, and passengers on glass-bottom-boat tours. The sculptures at the Manchones site are 26 feet deep, best observed on a scuba dive. Two sites closer to Cancún, at half that depth or less, can easily be viewed by snorkelers.
