My first time and it was absolutely spectacular. We were lucky because we got an almost perfect weather day. My tandem guide Santiago was excellent, checked in with me regularly and made sure I did a good share of travelling. We definitely flew for more than the 15 minutes too.

This was the highlight of our trip to Medellín! The flight was far more beautiful than it was scary. The pilot and I laughed and chatted the entire flight as he pointed out destinations in the area. I felt completely safe, comfortable and relaxed. Andes was my pilot and he was incredible! Ask for him if you can! Highly recommend!

We had relatively short waiting times and the transport went smoothly. Our driver was very nice (if speaking Spanish). The only disadvantage was that one of our group was only assigned to a Spanish speaking guide despite booking an English speaking guide. This was particularly tricky in view of the safety issue in paragliding.
