What people are saying about Cancún Underwater Museum

From the moment we walked in the door at AquaWorld, we were impressed and had a great time! I highly recommend AquaWorld for all of your water sports fun! We were treated with the upmost respect and the whole crew was very professional. We will definitely make reservations with AquaWorld for some snorkeling during our next trip to Cancun!!!

Absolutely amazing! The experience was so well conducted and prepared, we never really felt anything could go wrong. After this we just can't stop thinking about getting back into scuba gears. Truly recommend.

Marin is a great coach, patient and well experienced. This was my first immersion. I highly recommend this activity.

Diving has exceeded my expectations so much that I am already planning another vacation in Mexico :)

The tour was amazing, however the duration was listed incorrectly on the portal.
