Longstanding Cliff Diving Show in Acapulco Gets a Makeover

One of the iconic attractions of Acapulco has reinvented itself; the cliff divers of La Quebrada recently introduced a new, multimedia component to the celebrated show that has been attracting crowds since the 1930's.

Undergoing a technological makeover, the cliff diving show at La Quebrada in Mexico now features a light and sound presentation to enhance the already impressive show.

The new attraction consists of high-tech laser lights, in conjunction with a 12-minute video, giving viewers background information on the history of the diving tradition, as well as interviews with some of the divers themselves.

The video is available in both English and Spanish, and shows run four times per day. Witnessing the plunge of the divers at La Quebrada is a unique experience. The professionals dive from heights of 125 feet into the water below.

The iconic "clavadistas" of La Quebrada have drawn daily crowds for over 70 years, watching in awe as the divers perform their amazing plunges into the waters of the Pacific Ocean.
