The La Quebrada Cliff Divers in Acapulco, Mexico

February 18, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
These brave and highly skilled divers perform diving maneuvers from upwards of 125 feet from atop the La Quebrada Cliffs.   The depth of the water can vary from 6 feet to 16 feet depending on the wave coming in.  These divers have to time the wave just right as well as jump out far enough to clear the cliffs in order to avoid injury.  In 2002, the Guinness Book of World Records listed the La Quebrada Cliffs as the highest regularly performed headfirst dives in the world.
