It should be a rule of the game but it is unenforceable. I try not to use Google at all and only Google earth when I have a fair idea.

Name the bay, and you're up again, Donjuanluis!
You are right. Gallerist site says is near Cancun, Mexico. Searching a bit more, it is located between Cancun and Isla Mujeres (women island), and is also known as Museo Subacuático de Arte (MUSA)

DJL you are a few hundred miles off. True it is easy to find but try the southern Caribbean.

you may be right as it says in

off west coast of Grenada..Molinere Bay

Interesting to see there are the same pictures in other links which name off west coast Isla Mujeres.
Cancun Underwater Sculpture Museum | Amusing Planet

At least all sites agree with the author Jason de Caires Taylor.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Another rule we should have is no hints unless its your turn and you are running the quiz. Giving hints to someones elses quiz can throw everyone off, or make a well thought out quiz a waste of the time getting the photos up.
