MUSA (Museo Subacuático de Arte) is an underwater museum located not far from Cancun and Isla Mujeres. The project was created in 2009 by artist Jason de Caires Taylor, who offered a modern look of how the Mayan people have evolved through out the years in “The Silent Evolution”. The aim of this project was also the protection of the coral reefs. The museum consists of more than 400 original sculptures, each of them are made from materials designed to contribute coral life and to attract marine life. The site is available for snorkelers, divers, or via a glass-bottomed boat tour.

When To Go Diving

Cancun is warm and sunny all year long, with the average water temperature ranging from 23C/73F to 26C/78F in the winter and 27C/82F-29C/84F in the summer. Diving is the best during the dry season which usually lasts from November to April. This time is considered the high season and generally avoids frequent rain and sweltering heat.

What to see

Most of the models were locals from Puerto Morelos, some of the statues to be seen here are Man on Fire, Anthropocene, Dream Collector and The Banker. Divers can find schools of fish, turtles, rays and other sea life in this area.
