The sea if very choppy and although only 10 meters under sea, it's difficult to really appreciate the art from the surface but to me, they just looked like stone statues under water. There's no history behind them and I found myself getting really bored...More

It was such an impressive dive spot. Hundreds of sculptures 7-8 meters below the sea level. Old Wv beetle cars are very impressive. If you are a diver visiting Cancun ; dont miss this wonderful dive spot .

My husband experienced this dive again this year and still enjoyed the experience. He used the dive shop on Carlos Lazo on Playa Norte, great experience!

Very cool trip to the museum. Took many interesting photos, the statues were artistically moving. Loved the trip here, although the nearby reef typically used for the 2nd dive of the trip was disappointing. It needs some Love and Care by the locals to restore...More

The museum has been built to "distract" divers from the nearby reefs and it seems to be working. Beautiful - if you go on a snorkelling trip it is a long dive down (8-10m) so be prepared to hold your breath for a while but...More

This place was an add-on as part of one the boat tours they sell to tourists at the ferry port. It was worth it! We only went snorkeling and, while you can see the statues from the surface, its hard to make out details. There...More

Can one visit the museum from Isla Mujeres where we will be staying in March? I only see tours leaving from Cancun. Do you rent snorkel equipment and what is the cost and admission price?

We are planning a trip for next November with my daughter who will be 12 and my parents who are in their early 60's. Could someone who has never scuba dived before be able to do this? Do you need to be previously certified? Thank you.
