Underwater Art Museum

The MUSA Museo Subacuatico de Arte is an underwater art museum that is ideal for those who love to snorkel or scuba dive. There are several reefs in the area, along with a couple of submerged cars and underwater sculptures to explore, all of which create a great backdrop to a range of local fish and underwater life.

The water is clear and calm at most times of the year, so even if you're not an experienced diver, you can still see plenty of brilliant marine life with just goggles and snorkel. If you don't want to swim, there are various tours available with glass-bottom boats that still let you see the sights without getting so wet.

Be aware that some times of the year the tides may be a little more vigorous than usual, which can stir up sediment and make it more difficult to see some of the underwater sights.
