Nice Dive

This was a very interesting dive site. Manmade village set up, small houses and a car and the fish have adapted very well to the site.

Well when it comes to diving in the Mayan Rivera there are tons of great dive spots but nothing as unique as Musa. The project started off as a way to promote marine life by creating an artificial reef but has transformed into a really cool diving experience. It feels as if you are discovering an under water city that... More

This was a fun dive despite the lack of marine life. I guess that is the point though - to take people off the reef and let it get a break. I would recommend others going for the unique experience, but I think once is enough.

i wasn´t impressed by watching the statues, boring, and i dont see the point of it.... i believe the best part was the trip to get there and see the different blue colors of the ocean

The snorkeling before MUSA was quite good on our trip. I think I would rate MUSA itself higher if we had not been made to wear life jackets and could have dove deeper to get a better view. It was still cool but would be better as a scuba option. The sea was a bit rough so the life jackets... More

I have been diving for about 8 years and this was my first underwater museum. It's a really cool dive and something different from the normal reef diving (which isn't too exciting in Cancun). If you want to dive while you are in Cancun this should be your first stop.

Interesting dive - very different. The statues have coral and seaweed growing on them which adds a different dimension to the experience.

This was my first time doing scuba and enjoyed so much that I will continue to get my certificate. The museum also was breathtaking as well. Just imagine you are down there in the water next to these statues in a total silence. One thing I would recommend to you is to read about this museum and watch youtubes about... More
