Sail away to MUSA, the Cancun Underwater Museum!

Your adventure begins in the morning when you make your way to the AquaWorld marina in the Hotel Zone of Cancun. Meet your English-speaking hosts, who will kindly welcome you into a boat. Then sail away toward the island of Isla Mujeres as you take in stunning views of the Nichupte Lagoon and its mangroves, leaving the Hotel Zone behind and eventually moving you into the pure turquoise of the Caribbean. That’s where you’ll visit one of the exhibits of MUSA, the Cancun Underwater Museum.

Snorkel next to naturally beautiful artwork

Once you see the wonderful Mesoamerican Reef underneath the sea, grab your snorkeling gear and jump right into these warm and gentle waters and experience an underwater universe thriving. As you swim, view the incredible MUSA sculptures crafted by master artists from all over the world, and see how the art comes alive with the color and the texture of the coral reef. The main purpose of these artworks is precisely to help the coral find a place to thrive in the Caribbean Sea of Cancun. After you’re done with your inspiring swim, return to the boat for refreshments and sail back to the marina to conclude your journey at sea.
