Not far from the Sandos Cancun Luxury Experience Resort, you’ll find a museum unlike any other on this earth—and that is because it sits at the bottom of the sea.

The Museo Subacuatico de Arte (MUSA) is located in the National Marine Park surrounding the Cancun, Isla Mujeres, and Punta Nizuc area. During a snorkeling trip, you can view more than 400 underwater sculptures designed by eco-sculptor, Jason de Caires Taylor. These breathtaking creations are not only incredible pieces of art work, but they also encourage coral growth and act as a natural habitat for fish. There is no doubt that this is definitely one museum swimming with possibilities.
Cancun, St. Lucia, Nicaragua. Needless to say, there’s no shortage of summery escapes available on SniqueAway right now. And since “Spring Break” is in the air, we thought it only fitting to live vicariously through tropical pictures and warm-weather music. So whether you’re looking for some tunes to blast during your beach vacation, or just looking to bring a little bit of the tropics to that decidedly non-vibrant cubicle, we’ve got you covered. Check out these beachy song staples both modern and classic.

We can all agree that traveling over the holidays can be stressful. Between visiting relatives and fleeing the frost for destinations like Gran Caribe Real Resort & Spa in Cancun, it seems like everyone’s on the move. Avoid a Home Alone situation (a.k.a. a mad dash to the airport followed by the realization that you’ve left little Kevin at home) by following a few of these handy travel tips:
Prepare: Print out boarding passes ahead of time, get to the airport a half-hour to an hour earlier than you typically would and, by all means, take potential power outages that may cause your alarm clock to stop working into consideration (we’re looking at you, McCallisters).
Pack light: If you’re traveling sans-children for a week or less, skip the 5-piece luggage set and opt for a carry-on. That way, you’ll skip the dreaded wait at baggage claim and won’t risk a lost-luggage meltdown.
Play around: De-stress during a layover by reading an entertaining book like David Sedaris’ laugh-out-loud (and entirely fitting) novel Holidays on Ice. If you have an hour to spare, pop into a salon for a pedicure; Sea-Tac Airport in Seattle contains a butter London nail salon, where manicurists will find out what time your flight leaves before dolling up your digits.
