The Silent Evolution Exhibit now open in Cancun

The Silent Evolution” is now open to the public.  The artificial reef exhibit, located off the coast of Mexico in Cancun,  is part of the world’s largest underwater museum.  It features 400 life size underwater sculptures based on real people by artist Jason de Caires Taylor. Snorkeling and scuba diving tours are available with trained professionals but anyone can swim amongst the sculptures for free. Visitors can also see the exhibit from the surface. The exhibit is attracting swarming Gray Angel fish which were scarce in the area prior to the exhibit’s installation. The sculptures are located near existing reefs and encourage new growth, helping to preserve natural corals and develop different species.

Fear is a 4-Letter Word

Excellent article by Joe Pike on Travel Agent’s site at click here. All you gringos need to get a clue. Mexico’s tourism has been unjustly damaged by press coverage of H1N1 & the drug wars. Those in the know continue to vacation in Mexico because 1) they realize the tourist spots are safe if not safer than their own cities back home 2) no one spends their vacations in a border town unless they are looking for trouble 3) areas such as the Riviera Maya are one of the best bang for your buck destinations available.
