I found this company through the staff that managed the AirBnB where I was staying in Medellin. They gave me directions on how to get from El Poblado to Caribe station where I took a bus to where the Paragliding (parapente) would be. There I met with Andres (or as locals know him, Mello) who took me up in the air! He spoke english very well and talked to me the entire time. He taught me about the different trees, birds, and what we were looking at. During this, I had a go pro in my hand that recorded most of the experience (SD card included in the package). The overall trip is something that I will never forget! You wont get a better view of the mountains and Medellin than the one with Xtreme Sports Center! Andres was knowledgeable, professional, and you felt extremely safe during the ride. I never thought that I'd do this, but I'm glad I did. It was unforgettable and something that I would definitely recommend doing!

I have always wanted to para glide but have been a bit nervous about it. While in Medellin a friend recommended Xtreme Sports and I am so happy I set my fear aside and decided to fly with the best paraglider in Medellin! Andres made me feel very comfortable and the flight was very safe. Not only was the scenery beautiful but the entire experience was amazing. I highly recommend Xtreme Sports! Super professional and they speak English which is a huge plus!

I've always, always wanted to do paragliding but never had the opportunity. After watching the various YouTube videos I'm so glad I did it! Thanks to the staff I was secure and comfortable. They where extremely professional. When you reach the top it really does take your breath away. The view is outstanding to say the least. I cannot wait to come back with my family next year and do it all again!!
