Snorkel or dive Mexico Rocks


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.

 Mexico Rocks is only 15 feet but packed with marine life. A carefree dive with out time limits or depth concerns. Good for Photographers, students and those who need refreshing. No trace of ship wrecks mentioned on the net, probably rotted and washed away decades ago. There is a cave entrance but currently Tour Operators are only visiting the entrance without cave penetration. The Mexico Rocks Cave has been named 'Shark Hole' and is the daylight sleeping sanctuary for number of Spiny Lobster and Sharks. .

Night Snorkel Mexico Rocks 

An unforgetiable Adventure for all ages.
