I went out here on a snorkeling tour and saw basically three things: one huge installation of standing human forms, a sunken newer model VW bug, and a set of 4 statues of human forms that were kneeling and had their heads buried in the sand. Our tour guide showed us the three spots and we were done in about 15 minutes! Was their more that we didn't see???

“SO GOOD !!!!”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

I've dived all over the world and this is one of my highlights ! Maybe it was just because it's a change from fish and reefs but it was awesome. We only snorkeled here but even that was sweet as ! Well worth it ! Don't come to the island without going here !

“Very Awesome”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

I really enjoyed my dive to the underwater Museum. There was a lot more sea life than I thought I would see down there. While I was on my dive, my wife was uptop snorkeling. This is a definate must see for divers and snorkelers alike.

“Awesome”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

My Wife and I were in Cancun last week and decided to go out with Scuba Cancun to the Museum. We had a great time (50 min BT) and got some great VIDEO. This is a super easy dive, max 32 foot, and some great backdrops.

“I just don't get it...”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We stopped here when the seas were particularly rough one day as something to do rather than risk life and limb in a gale. A bunch of statues in large blocks and strange poses in an otherwise unimpressive underwater landscape. I just don't get it.
