Isla Mujeres National Marine Park offers shallow reefs with exciting dive sites. The Manchones Reef holds a large number of species including turtles, angel fish, lobsters, sting rays amongst many others.
The dive sites are close to Isla Mujeres and while you travel in the boats, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy the turquoise water and incredible view of Isla Mujeres.
Manchones Reef also holds the world known Underwater Museum MUSA, a collection of more than 300 human sized sculptures that were created with the intention to protect the reef and encourage coral growth. This museum is also called the Silent Evolution, due to its eventual transformation into a complete reef ecosystem in the near future. Today the museum provides protection for many species and represents a symbol of environment conscience.
