Museum Monday: Cancun’s underwater museum

It’s been far too long since I visited Cancun and the Cancun International Airport , but the news about a fresh set of sculptures being submerged at Cancun’s Underwater Museum of Art (MUSA) puts the area back on top of my “go soon” list.

Since 2010, some 500 sculptures have been submerged in the bottom of the ocean to create a marine life-friendly museum that can be visited only by divers, snorkelers, parasailers and those in glass-bottomed boats.

The sculptures are of everything from life-size humans to a full-size VW Beetle.

Here are two sculptures by Elier Amado Gil that will be submerged during September and October. The first is titled El Entendimiento (Understanding), the second is called Reposo (Rest).
