Plaza de Garibaldi

Plaza de Garibaldi Just take a stroll around the plaza and you will notice Mariachi players everywhere. Always dressed in full garb with more than one guitar at times, these young musicians will play one-on-one if a tourist looks interested. Request a song and they will oblige, most are gifted players. Tipping is expected.

Cliff Diving La Quebrada Acapulco

Cliff Diving La Quebrada Acapulco Perhaps nothing in all of Mexico is more iconic than the cliff divers of La Quebrada. For decades, locals have risked their lives daily diving from more than 100 feet after crossing themselves and saying a brief prayer. For the ridiculously low fee of $2.50, you'll watch cliff divers take 130-foot swam divers from the cliffs into a small gorge. Starting at noon, performances go until after dark … when you'll see the divers take the plunge clutching torches! Be prepared to tip the divers well.
