“Punta de Clavadistas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

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 and beverages, usually snacks are also available. Your in Mexico so only drink bottled or canned beverages. There are one or two boys that circulate the crowd asking for tips. You can give a lot, give a little or not give at all. Once enough has been collected, the diver is signaled and there is a jump. Keep your camera ready, it happens quickly. Enjoy the picture.

“Cliff Divers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

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.

We have been here several days and have been able to view the cliff divers in action. These men do a great job and work for tips. Please be aware that they share their tips, so be generous!

“Not what it's cracked up to be”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

Yes, they dive off a cliff...but you'll get hassled for at least 200 pesos and it's not that spectacular. Don't be fooled by the photos. One night they did all the preparation and then climbed down and went home. Catch it...but don't waste time and money on it.
