Musa: Under Water Museum

Probably one of the most unique dive sites in the Riviera Maya is the Cancun Underwater Museum of Art, otherwise known as MUSA. This site consists of 500 different sculptures all placed on the bottom of the ocean for divers to explore and appreciate.

Due to the lack of coral reef in the vicinity, fish life is not as dense as a typical dive in this area but the sculptures make up for it. Look for stingrays, snapper, parrotfish
