Cliff-diving in Acapulco Acapulco is a popular holiday resort on the west coast of Mexico. Thousands of tourists from the USA and other countries visit Acapulco every year. They sunbathe on the beach and swim in the sea.
At a place La Quebrada, young Mexican men and women practise an amazing but dangerous sport. The sport is called cliff-diving, and the divers are called clavadistas.
However, a clavadista sometimes dives from the top of the cliffs, which are 35 metres high! This is very dangerous,because the sea is only four metres deep near the cliffs. When a wave comes in, the clavadista jumps!
