Cliff diving has been a tradition in Acapulco since the forties and it is currently one of the most famous cliff jumping locations in the world. The jump is off a 45 foot cliff into the ocean. Divers must consider the wind and the timing of the ocean waves to hit the water when there is at least four and a half meters of water covering the jagged bottom. Cliff divers can be watched by paying an entrance fee to gain access to a viewing platform.
 
In the 1930s, John Wayne and Errol Flynn purchased Hotel Los Flamingos to use as a home base for social events and fishing trips. Acapulco became the party destination of Hollywood’s A-list celebrities, attracting the likes of Ronald and Nancy Reagan, Delores Del Rio, Rock Hudson, Debbie Reynolds and Orson Welles.
For her 28th birthday, Rita Hayworth celebrated in Acapulco Bay aboard Errol Flynn’s yacht. Elizabeth Taylor married Mike Todd in Acapulco, and John F. Kennedy and Jackie honeymooned in Acapulco, as did Bill and Hillary Clinton.
 
In the 1960s, moviegoers got a taste of Acapulco’s frolicking beach life in Elvis Presley’s hit movie, “Fun in Acapulco.”
