Gabriel (Gabby) at Suya Tours was our snorkeling guide last week to Mexico Rocks. He was very helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. I would highly recommend requesting him to be your boat driver and snorkeling guide when snorkeling anywhere in Ambergris Caye.

Amazing snorkelling! We went twice and saw lots of different fish, turtles, a couple of nurse sharks and rays, a massive lobster, and - of course - lots of coral. Smaller and quieter than Hol Chan.

Snorkelling in the midst of schools of colourful tropical fish was a highlight. The water seemed around 3 metres (10 ft) deep and the reef is in decent condition. Tons of different fish (both big and small), sea turtles, stingrays, lobster and conch. There were only two other boats - nothing ruins a good snorkel quicker than being in a huge crowd so this was really enjoyable and we all had plenty of space.

Less crowded than Hol Chan but more marine life - we even saw dolphins and turtles! Also not too many nurse sharks, if someone in your snorkeling party isn't into that.

I highly enjoyed snorkeling at Mexico Rocks! It wasn't crowded at all and we got to see rays, turtles and all sorts of cool fish.

We saw everything here that we saw at Hol Chan, but with wayyyyyyyy less people! So much better, I felt like I was truly exploring. Because it’s less popular, I felt there was much more marine life. We went with Searious adventures and they let us snorkel around on our own for a solid chunk of the tour. I really enjoyed this experience. Probably the most relaxing and magical place to snorkel.

This site is less popular than the Hol Chan Marine Reserve so it's a wonderful, leisurely spot to snorkel.

Lots of nice corals here along with many tropical fish. Well preserved but you need tickets to go there ($15/each). These were collected by the game warden who sits on a boat awaiting your arrival. And, if you try to remove anything, the fines are steep ($500 or more). Well worth the ticket price!

Loved snorkeling here. Could spend hours here but the tours tend to rush you in and out. Amazing sea life to see and experience.

One of the other reviewers mentioned getting a rash at Mexico Rocks. This is what Google had to say:
The rash, also called seabather’s eruption, is a form of dermatitis caused by jellyfish larvae in the water. The larvae belong to two marine species that sting: the thimble jellyfish (Linuche unguiculata) and a sea anemone (Edwardsiella lineata). They’re parasites that feed off of fish, not humans. And the word “lice” may make you think of head lice, but there’s no relation at all.

The larvae are transparent, so you can’t see them. And they’re so tiny (2 to 3 millimeters long), they get trapped in your hair, or in between your bathing suit and your skin.
