Cancun … a fabulous location to see.. One of the most unusual attractions in this resort town is the Cancun Underwater Museum (MUSA). Set up in 2009 in the wake of storm damage to the Cancun National Marine Park, this seabed-based attraction is dedicated to the “art of conservation” and is a delight for divers to explore. The core of this unique art collection are the more than 500 sculptures spread across two underwater galleries (a few are located on land in a nearby mall) submerged at depths of between three and six meters and encompassing human figures in a variety of poses (there’s even a concrete car). Put together by six artists from Mexico and Britain, the sculptures will ultimately form the basis for new coral reefs. Hot Tip: If diving is not your thing, this remarkable collection can be viewed from the comfort of one of the many glass-bottom tour boats that ply the waters.
If you’re wanting to participate in activities in Cancun that allow you to just sit back and relax without getting sand everywhere, take a catamaran cruise. Whether you take one during the day to enjoy the sights, go open sea snorkelling or even bask in the sun with a cold adult beverage, a catamaran gets you offshore without any stress.
Various companies in Cancun also offer dinner cruises so you can take in the sunset while enjoying a gourmet meal. Click here to check out the Dancer Cruise, which offers a full day trip, with open bar, snorkelling and more.

Get out on the water and enjoy a 2.5-hour sunset dinner cruise aboard a classic Spanish Galleon.
You’ll get to see stunning views of the sunset while enjoying a three-course meal (choose from lobster, steak, or vegetarian dishes) and a lively atmosphere complete with a live saxophone band and an open bar.
It’s the perfect way to spend a romantic evening together on your Cancun vacation.
It takes a two-hour drive and a 20-minute ferry ride to get to Isla Holbox from Cancun. But more and more nature-lovers are being drawn to this sleepy, remote fishing village, and “Bird Island” is one of its main attractions.
Located on the picturesque Yalahau lagoon, the 200-foot-wide island is protected by mangrove swamps, brush and cactus, with just two observation points and walkways. No humans are allowed to walk on the island.
As a result, it’s a bird-watcher’s paradise that’s home to over 150 different species of birds crowding the island’s trees and shoreline. The ones we saw during our two visits included double crested cormorants, ducks, reddish and snowy egrets, frigate birds, herons, roseate spoonbills, and rare white pelicans.
