Parque Natural Mexiquillo



The caravan has come to rest in the palm shaded Acapulco Trailer Park (16.90345 -99.975520) a few miles north of town.

We caught  the one of a kind Loony Tunes bus into downtown Acapulco.

A very fancy bus

 Happy travelers Denise, Bob, Sue and Ruth

First stop was to watch the cliff divers. Although cliff diving at La Quebrada had taken place for many years, it was not until 1934 that the La Quebrada Cliff Divers was formed. A cruise ship was in port so it was hot and crowed. We arrived  early and go seats in the shade.

The divers climbing up the 135 foot cliff. This impressed me as much a diving off this soaring escarpment. Check Kevin's bog for close ups. 

Pushing off. The cliff slopes out, so the divers have to push out far enough to clear the bottom.

 A clean entry

Applause for a dive well executed.
