One of Mazatlan's nightly attractions is the Cliff Divers or Clavadistas in Spanish. They dive from a small park on the ocean near Olas Altas from over 50 feet up into a rough and shallow gap. The divers must time their launch perfectly (since the water recedes to a dangerously shallow depth) then paddle hard before the next rush of water comes in. The divers can be found most nights and always weekends around sunset until the crowds thin out. Mazatlan Today has a breif history of the Clavadistas along with directions.
