Snorkeling Mexico Rocks & Tres Cocos
Mexico Rocks is an area of huge coral heads scattered all over this snorkeling spot. These enormous coral formations contain large brains corals, gorgonians, sea fans and sea whips which provide shelter for an abundance of critters. Common creatures like angelfish, butterfly fish, groupers, snappers, file fish, grunts can be seen swimming along these formations as well as a casual loggerhead turtle.
South of Mexico Rocks closer to town is Tres Cocos, a small concentration of marine life along the reef where a large amount of fish can be seen. You can encounter a large population of Elk Horn corals, Lettuce Coral, Brain Coral, Sergeant Majors, Angel Fish, Damselfish, Fairy Basslet, Hawks-bill Turtles and occasional Green Turtles just to name a few. This area is an entrance for large reef fish that usually lurk around these areas in search for food.
