I have wanted to get my P2 license for 2yrs. I chose Medellin because I heard of Ruben from a longtime paraglider in Seattle. Ruben is the godfather of paragliding in Colombia starting when paragliding barely existed in Colombia and had just began as a new sport. He takes safety extremely seriously. I would trust him and his partner "H" with my life! This is something to take into consideration when looking for an instructor/tandem as other instructors in the area may be younger, less experienced and less likely to have your best interest at heart. You get what you pay for here and honestly it is worth so much more. Ruben and "H" are like Dos XX men with plenty of amazing stories and life experiences. They are wonderful passionate human beings and extremely trustworthy and honorable. They would do anything to ensure the safety and enjoyment of their clients. I would joke that Ruben was like the Mr. Miyagi of paragliding, it's so accurate! Another reason why Medellin is a wonderful place to learn is the beautiful rolling green mountains in the surrounding area. Ruben and "H" will take you to spectacular landscapes to learn or you would do a tandem over gorgeous Medellin. you should 1000% fly with Ruben! You will not be disappointed.

Could not be more thrilled with my experience with Paragliding Medellin. A friend and I both took our P1 / P2 paragliding certifications in English with Ruben and it was an incredible experience. Ruben is a very knowledgeable and caring instructor who is excited to share his passion for paragliding with his students. We were able to travel all around Colombia to different beautiful locations we wouldn't have otherwise seen. Definitely going to come back and do our P3 with him next year!

This was a fantastic flight, and the man who owns the operation personally came and picked us up and was so encouraging and comforting, so friendly. The flight guide was experienced and very friendly and understanding; he did not rush, he was happy to do the flight and we even waited a bit so that we could have the perfect weather to make for a perfect flight, whereas other companies were going anyways. Highly recommend!

As we have seen the plenty of good reviews, we have picked rubenfly as our paraglide agency. I have to say it did not disappoint at all! The staff is amazingly friendly and makes you feel at ease. We took the full package which is highly recommended. No hassle whatsoever, which is perfect! The view is obviously stunning and the instructors really seem to have fun in what they are doing! Thank u for making the experience unforgettable!!

We took advantage of the door to door a service. Be aware it takes 45 min to get there, itself an adventure in Medellin traffic as well as a great views. On arrivaal, shorty hike up the hill to the takeoff point. Waiver and IPad review done quickly and then we were suited up. The team of guys did several safety checks and showed you how to uses the GoPro and walkie talkies. Immediately after takeoff you truly felt like you were floating and felt very secure with your guide. At 9500:feet you are soaring with the birds and buzzards! Safe landing had by all. Landing area is different location than takeoff. Once the crew packed up the gear, short hike down a hill to a cab, whoa then brought us back to our original cab driver whoa brought us up. Door to door 3 hours. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
