Five times a day professional cliff divers from Acapulco thrill the public with a spectacular event, swimming across the narrow La Quebrada channel, scaling the 28-meter cliffs and then taking turns to dive from different rocky points. The show can be seen at a price (including either dinner or two drinks) from the terraces of the Hotel Mirador or for a much cheaper contribution (often including a soft drink or a beer) from the steps which snake down towards a platform just beneath the diving spot, managed by the Cliff Divers themselves. The first show is at 1pm, while the next four are at 7, 8, 9 and 10 with torchlight and other fiery antics. Before leaping into the abyss the divers pray to the Virgin of Guadalupe at one of two shrines built in her honor at the top.
