Indisputably, Mexico has some of the world’s most prized natural gems and travel experiences. From mysterious caves to lush tropical beaches and charming rural towns, it’s no wonder it’s the sixth most visited country in the world.

The MUSA Museum (Museo Subacuático de Arte), an underwater contemporary art exhibition located in the Cancun / Isla Mujeres area, is another reason one should visit this beautiful country. Founded by Roberto Díaz Abraham in 2009, the museum contains a collection of over 500 life-size sculptures by Jason de Caires, Elier Amado Gil, among other Latinx artists. These man-made art pieces sit at the bottom of the shallow sea to not only promote high end art, but also preserve coral life.

You can tour their various underwater sculpture exhibits by either glass bottom boat, scuba diving, or snorkeling. Book your trip and visit MUSA to experience an alternative perspective of Mexico without the claustrophobic crowds.

An underwater museum?! I have to sit down for this. That’s right, in Cancun, Mexico there is an underwater museum called MUSA; Museo Subacuático de Arte. You can snorkel, freedive or scuba to see it. What a fantastic way to get people back out in the sunshine and into Mexico’s beautiful blue waters. . . . #musa #MuseoSubacuáticodeArte #snorkel #freedive #gopro #gopro7 #experiencedifferent #girlsthatfreedive #cancun #timetocacun #cancundreams #quintanaroo #visitqroo #rivieramaya #mexico #tkkmexico #mexicoturismo #turismoenmexico #visitmexico #centralamerica #northamerica #gltLOVE #girlslovetravel #thetravelwomen #travelgirls #girlsvsglobe #girlsmeetglobe #shetravels #iamtb
