Some things worth visiting take some extra effort.
Some things you don’t just drive up and see.
Or walk down a long trail to be able to visit.
Or take a boat to.
Some things require wetsuits and oxygen tanks.
But the Cancun Underwater Museum seems like it would be worth the extra effort.

About the Museum from Wikipedia:
Cancun Underwater Museum is a series of sculptures by Jason deCaires Taylor placed underwater off the coast of Isla de Mujeres and Cancún, Mexico. The project began in November 2009 with placement of a hundred statues in shallow waters of the Cancún National Marine Park, which had been previously damaged by storms.
The sculptures are created with pH-neutral marine concrete and are based on members of the local community. The artist planned the sculptures as artificial reefs with fire coral planted in the initial sculptures. A total of 400 sculptures are planned, to be installed by the end of 2010.
Snorkeleres, scuba divers, and tourists in glass-bottom boats all visit the underwater installation.
Would you don scuba gear to go check out the museum?
