La Quebrada is perhaps Acapulco's most iconic
attraction, a place that has come to symbolize the city itself.
Every day at 1:00 p.m., young men dive from La Quebrada's perilous
and jagged cliffs, timing their jump to coincide with the incoming
waves that cushion their impact and protect them from landing
in the shallows. Come evening, more diving takes place.
For generations, brave young men from Acapulco have
hurled themselves off the majestic cliffs jutting out over the
Pacific Ocean. These fearless fellows dive into a narrow inlet
where huge waves enter and crash over the rocks. The timing
of their dives is crucial and must be perfectly executed due
to the dangerous water conditions below.
