Sculptures would evoke powerful emotions regardless of their location but being situated underwater gives them an air of mysticism.

The Cancun Underwater Museum boasts hundreds of them and the marine flora and fauna has already become one with some of the sculptures.

The best way to visit the sculptures in Salon Manchones is scuba diving, since the sculptures are located 8 meters deep, making the whole site look like the sunken remnants of an ancient civilization.

Take a swim in these worldly known waters and explore over 500 statues and the life they’ve bred along the coral reefs that have formed this artistic reef that balances art and nature in the most elegant and visually attractive way.

Each of the sculptures is made from specialized materials used to promote coral life, with the total installations occupying an area of over 420sq metres of barren seabed and weighing over 200 tons.

The layout is divided into two galleries called Salon Manchones and Salon Nizuc.

The best way to visit the sculptures in Salon Manchones is scuba diving, since the sculptures are located 8 meters deep.

There are 3 ways to visit the sculptures in Salon Nizuc and spot different sculptures: you can snorkel, take the tour in the glass bottom or the jungle tour. The depth of this area is 4 meters so no scuba diving is allowed.

The best way to visit the underwater sculptures in Punta Sam is snorkeling, since they are located 3.5 meters deep. You will only need the visor, a pair of fins and the snorkel!
