Cancun Underwater Museum, Wonderful Experience

1730

This world is really amazing, and there are lots of wonders that have been seen once in a life. One of this wonders is an underwater museums around the world, but this time we will take your attention to Cancun Underwater Museum.

The Cancun Underwater Museum (MUSA) Mexico, is project which began with Jason DeCaires Taylor, an English artist teamed up with Jaime Gonzalez, and Roberto Diaz. The underwater museum today consists of three ‘salons’ and includes over 460 statues made by Jason and some other local artists.

It all started when they had to do something about the damage to the local reef areas, because hurricanes and tropical storms were taking their toll on natural gardens.

So, the idea was born, and now there are submerged life sized statues which creates an amazing artificial reef area. The magic is completed, because marine life still goes on, coral reef grows so fish could inhabit and breed in and between the sculptures of underwater museum. Cancun was opened in 2009.

And we have to mention that it’s not easy to sink hundreds of tons of marine concrete whilst protecting the delicate features of the sculptures.

It is really amazing experience and big tourist attraction.

Enjoy in a beauty, and find a way and time to visit it…
