The MUSA Underwater Museum. Between Cancun and the island of Isla Mujeres in Mexico, there is an incredible place to Scuba dive. It’s an underwater sculpture park, acting as a coral reef for all of the incredible animals underwater.
Jason Decaires Taylor a British scultor created the very first park of this kind in 2009. Now it attracts Scuba divers and snorkelers from all over the world. A diving highlight of Riviera Maya and the Yucatan Peninsula, it’s really easy to get to from Cancun. I hopped on the ferry from Puerto Juarez to Isla Mujeres and found myself a hostel called PocNa. We did a few dives together. 3 on the museum to shoot this video, another few on the nearby Manchones reef, which has a few more sculptures and an incredible amount of fish.
We also did a dive at the nearby wreck called GunBoat 58 during eagle ray mating season. That…. was a show.
If you’re not Scuba Certified, you need to join the club. There are a lot of PADI dive centres down there that can hook you up. The earth is 70% water, and we only explore the 30% that is land. Go and Get Wet!
Big thanks to Pocna Dive Hostel for helping create this video. They totally rock, you should visit if you are on the island!
