I had the most awesome time, it made me laugh, it made me a bit scared, it was a hell of a thrill. Omar the pilot was great fun and knew exactly what he was doing. Highly recommended. A great adventure.

An extraordinary experience to fly over the treetops. At first it was very gentle, but thrilling when controller did some movements, especially when landing.

Amazing experience for our family! Our children ages 11 and 12 enjoyed paragliding and hang gliding as well as my husband and I. The pilots were so professional and made it easy for us to try it for the first time. It was so much fun and we felt very safe! SkyTrek is the group to go with for this... More

I should mention that I'm scared of heights and always get a little nervous on airplanes but had decided that 2015 was going to be the year to overcome... More
