"The City of Eternal Spring" offers amazing views and endless opportunities for adventure, but none compare to flying high above the city in the wind currents. We were met by our guide Julian at Parque Lleras in the center of Medellin, and enjoyed good conversation as we were transportated up to San Félix, atop a Mountain, high above Bello in northern Medellin. The flight instructors are friendly and know their equipment, as this is their "office"... Taking off is easy, and from the moment you begin rising in the air, the exhilarating feelings are endless, not to mention the views. You are seated in a very comfortable chair like harness as you glide high above the treetops, rising on wind currents to amazing heights. Included in the experience is a GoPro camera mounted on a selfie stick, and all photos and videos are uploaded to your phone as soon as you're back on the ground... which is easier than the takeoff. I give Julian and this Parapente Experience (Paragliding) my absolute highest recommendation. Bring a jacket or sweatshirt because it can be quite cool at these elevations and in the wind... Also may I suggest some medication for motion sickness if this affects you at all... Trust me, this is an adventure not to be missed, and for 75 dollars, it far exceeds the value!

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.
