Mexico Rocks Marine Reserve
Mexico Rocks is a shallow patch reef complex located off the northern tip of Ambergris Caye, on  the Belizean Barrier Reef. The site consists of approximately 100 Holocene patch reefs and is composed predominantly of boulder corals (Montastraea annularis). The reef has accumulated in shallow (about 2.5 to 5 meters) water over the last 420 years. The Montastraea annularis patch corals that dominate here are unique to Ambergris Caye's Northern Lagoon and a rare occurrence in Belize.  It is seen as an important addition to the caye's ecotourism attractions, being a popular snorkeling and shallow dive destination. The area is known for conch, banded shrimp, arrow crab, flounders, stingray, yellow tail snappers, an assortment of butterfly fish, angelfish and friendly turtles. We have daily snorkeling and dive trips to Mexico Rocks for snorkeling 55.usd. SCUBA is 60.usd. Departures at 9:am and 2: pm daily. (Park Fee is 10.usd.) Night Dive 80.usd.
