this was interesting to see but there were a lot of other boats and people there and we had already done the whale sharks and nothing will EVER compare to that!

It is so unique and the water is just perfect. If you snorkel, you will get an arial.view but its still fun. The kids even got to see a ypung nurse shark (not dangerous) near there. You will need to get a boat tour but there are lots of them. Well worth the time.

Me and my boyfriend did a daytrip from Cancun to Isla Mujeres. We had planned to mainly relax there. We arrived around 11am by ferry and were directly approached by a guy asking if we want to do a snorkeling tour. We asked for details and it would have a duration of approx 3 hours. We'd see the mangroves, go... More

We were staying on Isla Mujeres and this was very nearby. So much fun - in addition to all of the amazing statues, we also saw a lot of fish.

I went scuba diving this underwater museum, which is a reef replacement, hand created by a man to help restore the reef. The statues are based off of real people, and look eerie, but beautiful underwater. I highly recommend checking this out for a day. The reef is starting to regenerate, and the fish are coming back. Loved seeing this!

There are at least five hundred statues made by an artist and then permanently affixed under water.It was a bit spooky until you know the reason why it was made and installed. The coral reef was disappearing so the town decided to pay an artist to create all of these statues which were then placed at a spot underwater. In... More

Dove here as a check out dive. Isla doesn't have a whole lot of dive sites it seems. Was neat to see all the structures. The statues were kinda trippy.

Swim around this attraction including dozens of statues and even a sunken vw bug. Lots of fish to see. You can take a guided tour, but expect crowds and not much time on the reef.

The official PR coordinator Karla ( musamexico.org) provided us with amazing information, service and quick reservation. We took the boat Ultramar from Puerto Huarez ( in Cancun itself, not hotel Zone, because it is exactly twice cheaper). And then we walk to hotel and dive center called Pocna (street matamoros 15), where we actually joined the group of diverse and... More
