Caribbean coast: Riviera Maya and Tulum: Visit an underwater sculpture gallery

Visit an underwater sculpture gallery

A marriage of art and conservation, this unique and mesmerising underwater sculpture garden features a collection of over 400 clay statues designed to gradually attract the formation of coral, transforming the artwork as it evolves into a new marine habitat.

The unique project was developed by a British artist and almost exclusively features life-size human figures, the most haunting display being a circle of outward-facing statues holding hands. To reach the installation, you'll travel out to sea in a speedboat before snorkelling around the various exhibits.
