No Quebrada de Acapulco, But Impressive Anyway

We were just doing an afternoon walk along the coastline north of Olas Altas and I walked out to the rock pinnacle and was about to climb the stairs when two fit young men said - "Senior, we will jump and you can give us a tip if you like it!" I returned to the parking lot/viewing area and these... More

So, los clavadistas is a definite must see in Mazatlan. Where else are you going to see men diving off of a 15 meter cliff type structure, clearing 2 meters of horizontal rock, and landing head first in a dive in 1 m deep water between sharp rocks? They ask you for money but if you time it right, you... More

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.

These young men are amazing...what courage they have to dive off headfirst into some dark rocks. While enjoying a leisurely walk down the Malecon, find this place and watch these guys! They are trying to eek out a living by doing something incredibly dangerous... please don't forget to tip generously, it's worth every pesos you spend! Enjoy and watch closely,... More

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

My husband and I got married here in March 2013. The permit office says we were the first couple EVER to do so! I chose it because we have so many great memories here. It's beautiful at any time of the day, cliff divers or not. Also, a lot of people want to get married on the beach but, I... More
