Such a wonderful park, such a wonderful idea and such a beautiful clear ocean! Those are the positives. The snorkel tour we took, however, was very poor. The guide we had to follow did not know where the statues were, there was no time to enjoy them and a lot of swimming around looking for them. Many people gave up,... More

While I was not impressed by the diving trip to Cozumel, I have to admit that my dive in MUSA was amazing. Not only did we see a lot, we managed to view most of the museum as the dive lasted for about 57-58 mins.We were lucky to witness some beautiful sea life and the statues make an unforgettable impression....

The statues inside, the fish that come to greet you when you feed them and the coral reefs and the enormous amount of live thriving in it were part of our amazing experience in this place. You must scuba dive in it to have a more aquatic experience and feel like a fish. It was simply awesome!

This is a beautiful museum to see. Middle of the ocean, bunch of figureens at the bottom of the sea. I did Snorkeling and got the view from the top but if you have time, I strongly recommend scuba diving to enjoy the real beautyl

The sculpture are interesting but for snorkeling you can't see them that well. I think it would be awsome for scuba diving.

We took a guided tour to the lighthouse, a reef, and finally the MUSA. They guys fed the fish and HUNDREDS came from no where. We saw all different kinds of fish as well as a ray and a turtle near the MUSA. The water is totally clear enough to see what you want snorkeling. Fish and corral were all... More

This was a strange manmade dive. Although my dive crew rocked and I saw two turtles, the sunken statues and VW bug were oddly places and nonsense. I would opt for the wreck dive or the cavern dive instead.
