Today we’re talking about… the Cancún Underwater Museum.

I have been to Cancún several times but I’m really looking forward to going back to see the amazing Cancún Underwater Museum up close and in person.  The project began in 2009 when a sculpture series of one hundred statues by Jason deCaires Taylor were placed underwater in an area of the Cancún National Marine Park.  The installation now includes over 400 sculptures and from pictures it looks absolutely amazing!

Visitors can view the life size sculptures that are designed to become artificial reefs by scuba diving, snorkeling or viewing the area from a glass-bottom boat.  The best part is the sculpture reefs will change as time goes by so you can visit again and again and see something new.

For more information on the museum, visit Cancún travel.
