para-sailing

Is there para-sailing offered in the area. If so who offers it and who would you recommend. We are staying at Barcelo.

Thanks Suzanne

As far as I know there is no para-sailing in Huatulco. In all of our visits (5) there I have never seen it.

Hi:

Just back from Huatulco January 12th.

We had a hotel very close to Santa Cruz marina and we walked the marina every day. We didn't see any parasail boats in the marina or out on the water.

We also toured all nine bays and didn't see them.

Has not been a para sail operating here in Huatulco for several years now

I believe the boat is parked in Santa Cruz ( on a trailer) and is for sale if you would like to start the business again

Lots of parachuting at puerto Escondido they land right on the crowded beach. Lookslike lots of fun, maybe 30-40 at a time dropped.

We have never tried Para-sailing before. But someone who I know had visited the area several years ago and they said they had gone and had a blast. Don't know if I would have the nerves to do it more curious than anything.

Thanks for the info.

Yes Alegre Vancouv,

I will maybe watch you do it first so I can perfect the face plant just right! Kinda scary eh?

Nope, i'm a coward. No quality control. I once watched a hooka snorkel air system compressor run out of gas. The divers popped up like ivory soap in the bath tub. Comical, but...

My hubby went down in the water once in PV. Funny but he could've really been hurt.
