(Surfrider Foundation) - Located near Mexico's famous diving spot, Manchones Reef, you'll find a collection of over 400 underwater statues that comprise one of the world's most unusual museums, the Cancun Underwater Museum. Despite being an artistic project, the park has conservation at is core. In addition to being a tourist attraction, the statues double as a conservation effort by drawing divers and snorkelers away from the Mesoamerican Reef, the second-largest barrier reef system in the world. The sculptures end up as homes for corals, sponges and other marine life.
