Bad and rude!
Nov 2020 • Family
It was bad to say the least.
On Facebook it says there is a 500 cólones fee and once we got there a VERY VERY rude lady came walking towards us, asking us to stop the car.
It was our first visit there, and assumed the place was public as gates were open.
She briefly explained the cost of 1000 cólones with the worst attitude, she basically kicked us out before we even got the time to understand what was going on.
No drinks allowed here, she shouted while no one had drinks of any kind, nor did we intend to walk in to a restaurant with our one refreshments...
She took our money and walked away, as I said “I don’t like her one bit”... little did I know that she had heard me and came marching back up to the car , returned the cash and kicked us out ...
I mean say what? First you over charge me, than you act like you are doing me a favor , then you kick me out?
If she is an employee, she needs to be fired and if she is the owner, she needs to find a different line of work, tourism and costumer service isn’t her thing.

Bad experience!

We got back from our Costa Rica vacation a week ago, and and I already want to go back and get some more time in the air at Nemaclys. Great experience!

Fine dining and paragliding!
Jan 2018 • Friends
I have visited Nemaclys every year for the past 13-14 years, whenever I get to Costa Rica. There is a very nice restaurant and bar with views of the Bay of the Nicoya and a chance to take a tandem paragliding flight as well. The tandem pilots are some of the most experienced paragliding pilots in the world, not an exaggeration! Because they have consistant conditions for much of the year they fly more days than any other paragliding site. It's a beautiful flight and very reasonable by US or European standards.
The food at the restaurant is outstanding, especially the ceviche, made from a secret recipe by the co-owner.

Amazing Views and Great Staff!!
Mar 2018 • Couples
Paragliding with Nemaclys was one of the best experiences my wife and I had in Costa Rica. As other reviews have mentioned getting there can be tough, but it's definitely worth it! If you want to avoid the entrance fee (500 colones per person) go on a weekday, but the fee is a small price to pay for such a great adventure. Jean Claude and his fellow pilots are friendly and always make you feel safe.

Amazing Experience!
Nov 2017 • Friends
Just got back from Costa Rica and paragliding here was one of the best experiences we had. I was a bit afraid at first but the staff was very friendly and made me feel at ease. The view was beautiful and it was so much fun! I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a unique and exciting experience on their trip.

Adrenaline Rush!
May 2017 • Solo
Such a fun adventure! Jean-Claude is a great guide, especially from a bird's eye view! The only problem is getting there so here's what I learned:
Taking the Puntarenas-Quepos bus, get off where the highway is right by the coast. You can tell the driver that you're going to Mar y Azul restaurante. If you pass the side of the road that is covered with Costa Rica banderas (flags) you've gone too far. Once you get to the restaurant call a taxi to take you there.
Quepos-Puntarenas: similar, get ready to get off when you see the banderas.
The acrobatic is a must if you like adrenaline. Great spirals that'll put a smile on your face! It's definitely not for people who are afraid of hieghts, instead, do the standard 10-20 min trip. It's very relaxing and a beautiful view.

Hard to find, great view, great paragliding
Apr 2016 • Family
My daughter wanted to try paragliding and selected this place. It was an hour ride from San Jose, but the turn off is easy to miss. As soon as you hit the ocean drive around 10km and just before a hill ,start looking for a small, nondescript sign at the right of the road where a dirt road branches off. After an interesting road you will arrive at the restaurant and you will be rewarded with a great sight. The paragliding operation is part of the restaurant and the people involved gave the impression that the where very experienced and knew what they were doing. My daughter had a great time using the tandem option and the food of the restaurant is not too bad either. Outside of the weekend give them a call ahead as one of the gates might be closed.

Mirador Nemaclys Magic
Nov 2014 • Friends
During our trip, we visited Mirador Nemaclys many times for the beautiful ridge paragliding, restaurant and views! The property offers many amenities, but the best one... Tandem paraglider flights to locals and visitors! A great place for all! The food was excellent - we ate there on three different occasions, trying different menu items. The staff and hosts are kind and helpful to ensuring a magical time at Nemaclys!
A side note to pilots... Very nice place to fly with birds & soar the ridge!
I look forward to returning soon!!

What??
Sep 2014 • Friends
What? You really want to charge an entrance fee for a restaurant? At least offer to return the fee if you order food! But too late the 10 of us went to a better place! A message to the boss that hung up on us... You are your own problem!
