Cancun’s iconic underwater museum is expanding once more. “Entendimiento” (The Understanding), a cluster of figures kneeling around the sacred fire is the latest group of sculptures to be submerged in the Cancun Underwater Museum of Art and it will soon be joined by two more art works: Zoe and Bendición (The Blessing), out of a waiting list of 16 that are ready for exhibition.

The work of artist Eliezer Amado Gil, Entendimiento is now on display underwater in Punta Nizuc, where visitors arriving on the wave runner jungle tour will be able to admire it.

The Cancun Underwater Museum of Art (MUSA) already has more than 500 sculptures for snorkelers and divers to admire and there is room for at least 846 more in the Manchones and Punta Nizuc galleries.

In addition to their message of art, the sculptures have become a habitat for fish, lobsters, corals, sponges and anemones and are slowly being transformed into living reefs.

If you would like to visit the Cancun Underwater Museum of Art during your next trip, ask your Concierge for details of snorkeling and scuba trips.
