The museum is located 50 meters from the coast and at a depth of 2 meters when the tide is low and 5 meters when it is high. Likewise, it can be visited by divers and snorkeling enthusiasts.

“You could say that it is regenerative art because with this underwater museum we intend to attract marine life and it is also very visual, perfect for a snorkeling or diving experience” , indicates the municipality.

The design and direction of the works were entrusted to the sculptor Fabio Brenes, resident of Orotina, who, with the support of students from James Madison University, completed the first stage of this museum, which presents sculptures of a “Cacique Garabito”, a manta ray and a Ridley de Kemp sea turtle.

The project not only functions as a new diving experience, but also creates a new habitat for underwater life.
