Cliff diving has been a tradition since 1961 in Mazatlán, and whenever the ocean conditions seem to make it impossible to dive, the young divers step back and give the limelight to the veteran divers, who made this place famous for what it is today. Mario Gonzales Agilar was the diver who started the tradition in Mazatlán, and his (more than) 65 years of age don’t hinder him from still diving, especially in extreme conditions. This tourist attraction started as a risky adventure and bet with his friend Roberto Jauregui Villegas.
When it is completed in 2012, the Baluarte River Bridge will not only be the highest bridge in North America but the highest cable stayed bridge in the world surpassing the Millau Viaduct in France. It is the crown jewel of the greatest bridge and tunnel highway project ever undertaken in North America. Known as the Durango-Mazatlán highway, it will be the only crossing for more than 500 miles (800 km) between the pacific coast and the interior of Mexico. The path of this new highway roughly parallels the famous “Devil’s Backbone”, a narrow road that earned its nickname from the way it follows the precarious ridge crest of the jagged peaks of the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains. The dangerous road is a seemingly endless onslaught of twisting, terrifying turns that are so tight there are times the road nearly spirals back into itself.
