Geologic Formation
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.

  • Long ago that I wouldn't and now returned with small. It is still spectacular. But there is no change that several years ago. And that the divers ask for tip, although we pay the entry... There is no health for kids and had no changes to buy soft drinks. The hours for nailing is disregarded. Even though I spend the hour, they expect more than 20 to 30 minutes to arrive the boats that came late. To see if they change the dynamics or to improve it. So bring more tourism.

  • 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$
  • Very impressive! They dive from 2.5 times the height of the Olympic high dive platform.
  • Brave guys jumping off the cliff. Beautiful view!
  • Cristóbal is an awesome diver!!
  • Really enjoyed the overall environment of the place along with the cliff jumpers.
