Located only six miles north of the island, Mexico Rocks and Tres Cocos is one of the most beautiful snorkeling sites, known for its crystal-clear waters and mountains of brain corals, some of which grow up to 20 feet, its colorful species of both small and large fish and other marine life. Mexico Rocks and Tres Cocos is an enjoyable alternative for those who prefer not to get close to the nurse sharks. This Belize snorkeling tour can also be combined with either a full day of sailing up north on a catamaran and a BBQ lunch on the beach, or a day of reef fishing and a BBQ lunch on the beach and even island hopping to nearby Caye Caulker.
