The Cliff Divers!
Excursions to see the cliff divers at La Quebrada often combine with other attractions and activities (such as city tours, bay cruises, and beach escapes). No matter what you choose, seeing the cliff divers is one of the most popular attractions in Acapulco, and is often sited as a “must do” for first time visitors. Most excursions range from 2.5 to 3.5 hours in length, but when the cliff divers are combined with beach escapes the duration is about 7 hours. Depending on the excursion you choose, activity levels range from easy to moderate.
Price: Adults expect to pay $59 to $129
Booking Advice: Cruise line prices compete well with third party vendors. However, this is one activity you may want to do on your own. For the cost of a cab (reasonable) and a $3.50 ticket, you get a soft drink and a balcony seat to see these amazing divers spin & flip mid air. This activity can combine well with lunch at nearby La Perla Restaurant at the Mirador Hotel.
