Has anyone ever gone on the full day Rocky Point snorkel trip - includes stops at Blue Point, Basil Jones and Mata Rocks?
We heard about it from our hotel. It sounds kind of nice.
Is Mata Rocks the same as Mexico Rocks?

While I'm at it, anyone have any suggestions on cheaper priced excursions?
We've done Altun Ha, Manatee watch, Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley.
All the rest seem to be $100 or over (except Mexico Rocks - which we plan on doing). We had unexpected expenses this spring and had to dip into the trip fund.

Mata Rocks is a hotel next to Banana Beach.Mexico Rocks is up north quite a ways. The reef gets very close to shore in that area, which makes for great snorkeling!

Have fun!!! Ooops...Rocky Point is where the reef is very close shore.

I believe there is a Mata Grande area on the north end of the reef. Between M & M Caverns and Robinson and then Mexico Rocks.

The whole island is labled for different areas. From the north end is Bacalar Chico, Rocky Point, Robles Point, Basil Jones, Punta Azul Habaneros and Palmero Point.
That comprises most of the far north area, which is very beautiful. The reef meet the shore between Robles and Rocky Point.

And yes, there is a hotel on the south side called Mata Rocks. :-)
