La Quebrada, Acapulco

4.3
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.

  • It is a unique experience that should live, is a true spectacle the excitement of seeing that brave when faced with the Majesty of the sea and Cliff

  • Place spectacular to see how the boys pull themselves from the most high is something incredible, since there are quite a few rocks but they know what to do very well. I liked very much and also looks an amazing sunset

  • 4 sessions per day 10: 00, 13:30, 19:30 and 22: 00. Breaks are great near the cliffs. Come at least an hour before if you want to have the best seats. The show lasts about 40 min with a ritual around the Holy. To do in Acapulco.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Acapulco

Acapulco offers accommodations catering to travelers at extreme ends of the financial scale. Pricey but luxurious beach resorts fringe the city's wineglass-curved bay and fan out to the surrounding coastline, while a dense block of high-rise holiday apartments and hotels dominates Acapulco Dorado. Among the ritzy options, you can find a wide range of inexpensive beach bungalows and hostels catering to younger, party-focused visitors. Stay a bit farther away from the center at the rocky outcrop of Las Playas to enjoy views over Acapulco's famous cliffs.
