Geologic Formation Landmark
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.

  • Had my reversal dinner here. Great food. Watched all the cliff divers. Was very awesome, my family really enjoyed that.
  • I always enjoy watching the young men dive. It's a great experience.
  • These are brave, brave men! I had a blast watching them. They also work the shops and kiosks, nothing but true devotion.
  • A must for anyone traveling to Acapulco. The lunch was American fare mostly. The Hamburger was good my husband had the enchiladas and they were just OK. The cliff divers were spectacular. They meet you outside the restaurant afterward. They let you take a picture with them for. 5$
  • Great time of the year to be here, not crowded. But very hot when the sun is out.
