Cliff Divers in Acapulco

29 December 2017 | Acapulco, Mexico
George Stonecliffe
Thursday night we went to the Hotel Mirador to see the Cliff Divers of Acapulco. After a wonderful dinner of Mahi Mahi, we had front row seats of the sunset at 6:15pm and then the diving at 7:30pm. There were about ten divers who all took one dive. Their ages were 15-20 years! The initial two divers leapt from less than half way up the cliff side. Most dove from 3/4s up the cliff side. And one dove from the top of the cliff...my guess...at least 100 feet, maybe more. Some did a clean swan dive, some flipped and went in feet first, some did jack knife dives,and the one from the top did a simple swan dive!! The anticipation leading up to each dive is nerve-wracking. But there is music. There are bright lights shining at the cliff and the water below. There were at least 6 good size motor yachts outside the cleft in the rock, so they could see the action too. Probably as many as 1000 people watching this performance. Inside the Hotel are walls covered with photos and with the signatures of celebrities that have come to see the show. My favorite was Roy Rogers and Trigger (his horse)!
