If you are heading to Mexico this summer, may we recommend one stop off the coast of Cancun?

There you can visit the Museo Subacuatico de Arte. It's an underwater museum filled with more than 500 sculptures covered with a fascinating array of sea life. 

Sculptures of human-like figures created and placed on the ocean floor by artist Jason deCaires Taylor. His new book about his artwork is called "The Underwater Museum." And photos of his work can be seen now at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California.

Jason deCaires Taylor joins Take Two to talk about his bizarre, ethereal and fascinating art.
