MUSA was an awesome excursion to snorkel through. All the architecture was very detailed and interesting. There are three sites that have sculptures of MUSA and most excursion companies (we used AquaWorld) only take you to two of them, as the third is very out of the way. I feel as though we didn't see a lot of the sculptures... More

Unfortunately the ammount of enjoyement you have in this place depends a 100% in the company you hire to do your trip. I highly recommend that you go scuba diving here instead of snorkeling. I went snorkeling a few years ago and it was not worth it at all. Snorkeling tours normally have super scketchy equipment and you didn't really... More

We snorkel every time we go, weather and waves permitting. We were lucky enough to be out one day and witness an underwater scuba wedding here.

Wonderful diving location. The statutes are in 25-30 feet of water. The longer you study the surface, the more life you find growing on them. What a great idea to begin an artificial reef. It makes for a great diving spot.

Lots of great statues on this dive. Great artificial reef with plenty of marine life. We saw many snorkelers above us. Not sure how much could be seen by snorkeling, but diving is a sure thing.

Definitely one of the most unique dive sites I have ever seen. The full-size statues are weird enough, but with the algae and coral growing on them, they are truly bizarre.

Great conditions to transition from snorkeling to diving. At times there can be a few too many people, but the artificial attraction takes the stress off of the reefs recovering from natural and man-made distress.

I'm so disappointed to had been done MUSA with scuba, I'm sure is beautiful if you dive, but with scuba You are going to see just 50 rocks together no sculptures don't expect to see the colorful fish that you are going to see at 4 meterá deep here is 9 meters and the fish are so deep to appreciate...

The sunken art pieces are pretty neat to see as your snorkeling / diving the Museo. Kinda cheesy but still interesting. If you've not seen it, I'd recommend it if you want to spend the money. You can get away with snorkeling it, although you'll only get a bird's eye view (unless you are a good snorkeling diver). If you... More
