Cancun Underwater Museum facts

The Cancun Underwater Museum known as MUSA is a non-profit organization focused to the art of conservation.

The Underwater Museum Cancun was created with the goal of saving the nearby coral reefs (damaged by tourists, anchors, and divers) by providing an alternative destination.

The museum has a total of 500 sculptures, most by the British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor, plus 5 Mexican sculptors. It was officially opened in November 2010.

The Cancun Underwater Museum is one of the largest and most ambitious underwater artificial art attractions in the world, visited by more than 100,000 visitors yearly on an average.

The Underwater statues used a new technique and material for coral to grow on (made with pH-neutral cement, coral, seaweed, and algae are able to grow). The statues also have holes in them, which allow marine wildlife to colonize and feed off the coral.

The layout is divided into 3 stages called Salon Manchones, Salon Nizuc and Salon Punta Sam, where our tour is enjoyed.

The best way to enjoy Cancun Underwater Museum in Punta Sam is snorkeling, since the statues are landed only 9 ft. deep. In warm and calm water, just as the rest of our tour (5 different snorkeling spots.)


6 hands representing a latin symbol that wish the good for everyone. The statues were posed in a big circle looking to represent a bless from Cancun to the entire world

The sculptures were created by Elier Amado Gil, a cuban artist.
