La Quebrada, Acapulco

(4.3/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Indulge in ocean-front dining, while divers take your breath away as they jump from cliffs into the open sea, at La Quebrada. Jumping from as high as 35 m (115 ft), divers plummet into water that is usually 4 meters (13 ft) deep. Cliff diving began here in 1930s when men would casually compete against each other to see who could dive from the highest point. It has remained a local tradition ever since, and was a favourite extreme sport of divers around the world during the 1970s.
