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.

Our Guides, Elias and Nick, from Discovery Expedition Tours, were absolutely wonderful. We are beginners at snorkeling, and Elias was so helpful to make us feel safe and stayed within a few feet of us at all times. There was another couple on the boat who were diving, and Nick took them. Our only problem was getting picked up at our hotel, because when Anywhere changed our hotel, they didn't change this pick up, but Ramon's Village staff was super helpful and called to change, and all was fine. They showed us many underwater fish and creatures, as well as the coral reef there. I'm glad we went there, as Mexico Rocks is only 12 feet deep at the most, so we could see everything clearly.
The Miss Gina, our Pro 42 dive boat, carries up to 16 divers plus crew making it an excellent choice for dive groups and can also be used for dive trips to the Turneffe Atoll. The Lady Grace, our Newton 46 dive boat, can accommodate up to 24 divers plus crew and provides a comfortable outing for those wanting to dive Jacques Couteau’s Blue Hole.

Snorkeling at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve is a sure-fire way to experience Belize’s diversity of marine life up-close. Animals at Hol Chan are used to getting fed by people on boats, so they’re relatively bold around snorkelers. This spot gets a lot of marine traffic, and every minute you spend underwater you’ll get to see something new.
