off-property exploration

One of the most unique museums in the world, the Cancun Underwater Museum is adding 60 new sculptures to the already sizable collection that is currently available for viewing. But to see them, museum-goers are going to have to strap on some fins or hop aboard a glass-bottom boat, because these more than 400 sculptures are sunken under the sea. Tour operators such as AquaWorld offer a variety of snorkel and dive packages starting from $45 pp, inclusive of equipment, refreshments and boat transportation.

getting there
