Daero my pilot was amazing!!! This was the highlight of my trip to Medellin. I booked this activity for three of my friends and we all loved them. Please be aware there are many steps Yku need to Climb to get to the launching area. Steps need to be fixed and railing installed. That was more challenging then the actual Paragliding. I still give it a 5 star ⭐️‘s

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!
