Snorkel Mexico Rocks PhotoSnorkel Mexico Rocks Photo

This snorkeling tour brings you to an underwater formation called Mexico Rocks, which is part of the much larger Belize Barrier Reef. Your tour will begin with a cruise from San Pedro. This trip is worth the boat trip alone – on your journey you’ll get to see Ambergris Caye’s incredible landscape from the sea.

When you reach the Mexico Rocks, the clear, shallow waters make an inviting space to look for exotic fish. This part of the ocean only gets to about 16 feet (5 m) deep. Since it’s not very deep, you can swim to the sandy bottom and see the fish that like to hide in the nooks of the rocks.

Grouper, barracuda, and sand sharks all have significant populations near Mexico Rocks. You’ll probably see a spiny lobster scuttling along, and eels poking their heads out from between the rocks. Colorful fish make this a popular spot to bring underwater cameras.

What to Bring

Money for entrance fee ($10 USD), sunscreen, optional underwater camera, and a towel.

What's included

Equipment, bottled water, tour guide, and transportation.
