How to Get There

The daytime ticket offers access to the park from 10am to 5:30pm, while a night ticket is valid 5:30pm to 11pm (night tickets are only available during certain months). Arrive in the morning and during the week to avoid large crowds. The offseason means fewer tourists, too.
The Cancún Underwater Museum
Located off the coast of Cancún, the underwater museum has a collection of more than 500 sunken sculptures that lie between depths of 9 and 20 feet.

Glass-bottom boat tours also offer a unique view of the unusual exhibit, which was built to help conserve the area’s reefs and create new homes for fish to flourish.
