My husband and I decided on a destination wedding in Medellin, Colombia, May 2022. While looking for activities to do, I saw a YouTube video of two young men going paragliding. They used Parapente San Felix and made an incredibly detailed video about their experience and highly recommended them for their professionalism and expertise. I was hooked. I looked into their prices and their pilots and was so pleased to see that they really are experts at what they do. Many of them compete and teach paragliding, and I was impressed by that. Communication with Parapente San Felix, through WhatsApp, was extremely simple, and they were just so quick and attentive any time I wanted to add to our reservation or had any questions. Day of, everything was so simple. We booked transportation to/from our hotel directly through Parapente San Felix, and that was great. When we arrived, checking in was a smooth process and we were off to paraglide! Paragliding was an indescribably incredible experience. It was one of the best experiences of our entire lives! My husband and I (separately, though) had the pleasure of flying with Luis, one of the guys who had been there the longest and teaches other paragliders. The sites, the flight, the photos, the entire experience, was breathtaking and such a memorable one. We cannot wait to do it again! PS: It’s great even if you have a fear of heights, because you aren’t jumping off anything, you are literally swept up by the wind. Amazing time with Parapente San Felix! 100/100 recommend!

Experienced people who work here who are very kind. You watch a short film before flying. The route to get there is quite long from the city but there are nice views as you go up. They also provide you with photos, and are very communicative through WhatsApp. The only bad thing and the only reason why I honestly regret doing this is because my friend and I got some horrific bug bites, sand fleas to be exact. Our legs are completely covered and horrific, I know this is out of the hands of the tour company but they should have told us to bring bug spray knowing that there were lots of bugs up there. For reference, I have about 50 bright red bites, even locals are shocked when they see them. You also may or may not land back where you took off from depending on wind conditions. My friend stayed up in the office because she was not riding and then my paraglided landed in the city so it was very time consuming to go back up to the office but they provided transportation. Plan on spending about 4-5 hours doing this, it’s literally like a half day thing just getting there, preparing, waiting for the paraglide, riding, then depending on if you land in the city or not. I was not expecting it to take this long, recommended not to be on a crunch time.

This was an amazing adventure. Safe, secure, amazing views from the air.

The tour operators were friendly and very communicative via WhatsApp, with screenshots of how to arrive, prices, etc. The pilots were experienced and also friendly. They give you an SD card with photos and videos that you take throughout the flight.

An experience of a lifetime.

Note: All communications are in Spanish, and they are cash only.

After seeing good reviews and decent prices we decided to give this company a try but were very disappointed with what happened on the day . We booked for 10:30AM and arrived at 10am to fill out forms and be ready for our departure. If you choose this company, prepare to WAIT. We ended up waiting until 1:45pm and 2:15pm for our flights after they allowed a large group of locals to cut the line in front of the 8 tourists that they had double booked for 10am. On top of all of this, my partner’s instructor crash landed her into the side of the mountain, injuring her arm in the process. They then sent her ALONE on a motorcycle with a stranger without a helmet up the mountain to the office - a far cry from the taxi that they promise if you ‘land’ in the valley. Think carefully before booking this company.

An adventure you will never forget. The pilots at Parapente San Felix were excellent. My wife, my two daughters and I flew off a mountain and it was beautiful. The views of the mountains, the city, the waterfalls, the total peace that you feel when you're up there. Amazing. I was surprised my eight year old, who doesn't like heights, actually did it and she had an incredible time. For a little extra, they even give you a video and hundreds of photos of the experience. These people know what they are doing and it was an incredible experience. We flew higher than the birds. Thanks so much to our pilots Esteban, Diego, Guiseppe, and one more that my wife was too nervous to remember, but they got us back safe and sound and we had a wonderful time. We will definitely do it again.

This was the best! I would recommend this activity to anyone in Medellin or visiting. Once you register at arrival, you’ll go up to the top of a mountain by stairs, a little tiring but once on top the breathtaking views are spectacular! My paragliding was coach name was Felipe and he described what I was seeing and made me feel comfortable. The ride was amazing, relaxing with beautiful views. My first time doing this and I’d definitely go back and do it again!!

We were hesitant about doing paragliding, I am very nervous person. I dont loved rollercosters no even high brides but the idea seemed very exciting! I was just afraid I migth get too anxious.

From the moment we arrived to the designated track (after a short uphill hike) My instructor made me feel very comfortable and solved all my doubts.

Getting ready was a fast process, they made sure all the equipment was in the rigth place and gave us detail instructions about what to do and what not to.

The take out was easier that I had imagined , there are other two guys part of the team that help the instructors and you to run fast and hard enough for the parachute to start working, you gonna feel when it starts pulling you back while you are still on land and after that is just fun, an awesome view and relaxing cool flight.

My husband and I loved the experience! We are very grateful with Fabio and Edson for being such a great instructors and made our flight so fun!

The whole team is very professional and you can tell they are very experienced, 100% recommended.

Btw: I always wanted to touched a cloud, wished come true! Thanks so much ParapenteSanFelix!

Parapente San Felix was a fabulous experience.

We filled out our form with personal information while enjoying the beautiful view with a coffee. A video will prepare you with instructions and any question is welcome. We came with a group of 4 and were able to experience this all together as a small group. Those who forgot there sunglasses were able to get some there.

After a lil hike up to the summit we met the paragliding buddies who already prepared everything. There is great taken care of safety & hygiene. The equipment made a good impression and the guys were working great together as a team. The atmosphere was great!

This experience is unforgettable: I have done paragliding before, but it is not comparable due to very smooth wind conditions & a fun landing on the butt. I can highly recommend these guys!

Thank you for having us & creating this great experience!

Booking was easy, communicated and arranged transport via whatsapp. Our driver Edgar was friendly and even took pictures and videos of our group throughout the whole experience.
All the pilots were amazing, my flight with Juan David was smooth and I felt safe the whole time. Highly recommend!
