Watching these skilled cliff divers on our Best of Mazatlan Tour was amazing. We had watched divers in other parts of the world, and these are some of the best. They have good form. Donations are encouraged. The bus tours do a good job of arriving on time to see them from a good viewing area.

When you go to watch these guys dive walk up to the top of the tower they dive from and check out the little pool they have to hit. One hell of a way to earn a living but they do, tip well and enjoy the experience. Try a shaved ice from one of the vendors....my favoroute is the truck... More

Well, yeah, sure we watched a young teen dive into the ocean and survive but that was only after watching him prep by chugging a couple of Pacificos to gather up the courage. He shouldn't have been allowed to dive and we facilitated it by paying first.

It's a great spot off the malecon, lots of open space with a tower, which a man will collect you donations and then dive off of into the sea. We watched it at night during a street fair, which was cool because he held flaming torches as he dived so you could see, but at the bottom it looks like... More

Watching cliff divers is Mazatlán is a must-do thing when you are in this friendly beach town. Take your time to observe several dives and where they dive into and you will understand how courageous and skillful these divers are. It actually requires a lot of skills and not any world champion divers could do it like they could in... More

Punta de Clavadistas (Diver's Point) is about a 15 minute ride from the center of town. It is a part of many tour stops. Bus loads come and go all day long. If you are not on a tour every bus driver knows where the young cliff divers jump. Souvenir merchants of all kinds hang out waiting for tourists. Food... More

The area was beautiful! Got to see a cliff diver dive, but he was so quick, I couldn't get my camera ready in time to take photos. He was very quick to come around to ask for tips.
