The Cancun Underwater Museum is the most famous underwater sculpture museum in the world, with 200 life-sized statues erected deep on the sea bed and over 500 art pieces.
This incredible place is not just an unusual work of art, it’s also an eco-project devoted to conservation of the area.
The Underwater Museum began as an idea to create an artificial reef featuring sculptures made from marine concrete. Their purpose was to conserve the existing natural reefs and provide new havens for fish and sea life.
Some of the figures are now covered with algae, while others host some beautiful reef formations, making their facial features distorted and distinctly eerie.
The huge underwater museum covers an area of over 420m² of barren sea bed and weighs over 180 tons.
Jump on-board the Aquatwister boat ride which will take you out into the clear Caribbean waters. From here you’ll take a guided snorkel over the main part of the Cancun underwater museum, known as “The Silent Evolution”.
