Aquaworld is one of Mexico’s leading attractions The sightseeing center offers quality tours, diving and fishing charters – servicing the majority of hotels in Cancun, Mayan Riviera and Cozumel. Since forming in 1987, the shop has grown steadily and has become a destination in itself. Today, Aquaworld offers fishing charter trips, Jet Ski jungle tours, scuba diving and snorkeling for all skill levels.


In 2009 a monumental underwater contemporary museum of art named MUSA (Museo Subacuático de Arte) was formed in the waters surrounding Cancun, Isla Mujeres and Punta Nizuc. The project now consists of over 500 permanent life-size sculptures and is one of the largest and most ambitious underwater artificial art attractions in the world.

The Museum aims to demonstrate the interaction between art and environmental science, and form part of a complex reef structure for marine life to colonize and inhabit whilst increasing biomass on a grand scale. All of the sculptures are fixed to the seabed and made from specialized materials used to promote coral life. The total installations occupy an area of over 420sq meters of barren substrate and weighs in at over 200 tons.
