Mazatlán’s Famous Cliff Divers are Worth Watching

The Malecon cliff divers are one of Mazatlán’s most famous traditions. And the experience lives up to the hype. This is a must-see in Mazatlán, especially just before sunset. A single diver launces off a rock podium precisely when a wave rolls into the rocky coast. The diver doesn’t land far from where water and rock meet, but it’s apparent that the diver knows what he’s doing and provides a memorable thrill for all spectators. You couldn’t ask for a better adrenaline rush with a more scenic ocean background.

This area of the Malecon also hosts regular street fairs and events. Spend an evening watching the divers, eating street food, mingle with locals and enjoy a romantic Mazatlán sunset.
