No this is not anything like the divers in Acapulco, but it is still dangerous and exciting to see. Keep in mind, if these guys must judge the tides just right to have a successful dive. Yes they do as for a couple of dollars to do this, but I know I would not do it just for the heck of it. But if you are in the area you really should stop and see them. We go to Mazatlan every year, so we usually stop when we see there aren't many people around and have enjoyed it every time. Oh, and by the way, it is not over 600 miles from the city center.
