In Puerto Morales, a small village near Cancun, the sculptor Jason de Caires Taylor had the idea to exhibit his works underwater. The underwater museum has about 500 statues arranged on 150 square meters. They are made of a special cement so that they blend into nature and the corals and the fish are growing there as an artificial reef.
Based on Tripadvisor reviews there seems to be a good visibility, but the marine wildlife does not seem to be much more developed. All statues represents nearby residents (Puerto Morales, Cancun).
