La Quebrada Clavadistas Daring Dives
Now that you've seen some of the beautiful landscape in Acapulco, do you want to get your blood pumping? Relaxing in the warm sun isn't the only activity Acapulco has to offer; there are many that will get your blood pumping, your heart jumping, and your feet thumping! Grab some tacos, a cool drink, and follow us through a tour of a few of the best places in Acapulco that we dare you to try!
You may want to begin your thrill seeking vacation by watching the world renowned "La Quebrada Clavadistas", thrilling visitors since 1934 with their daring cliff diving skills. They offer their prayers to a statue of the Madonna (a few wielding burning torches), and they plunge 130 feet in to the waves thrashing around on the rocks below. These Clavadistas (divers) have to time these daring performances during times when the tide is at its highest, or it would mean their demise.
A nearby hotel, "La Mirador" boasts a worthy restaurant, "La Perla", which opened in 1949 by Swiss musician, Teddy Stauffer. The attire at "La Perla" is casual, although the atmosphere is anything but; hosting a birds-eye view of the cliffs and white capped water below where the divers take their daily plunges. The divers have several shows available, during the highest tides. You can catch the daring performances at "La Perla" at 12:45 pm, 7:30 pm, 8:30 pm, 9:30 pm, and 10:30 pm. Sit, have a drink and a meal and enjoy the daring dives of La Quebrada Clavadistas from the free view site of La Perla!
