My experience paragliding was incredible. I was supposed to go on the Wednesday but I was told by Nelson (the pilot) that the winds were not good for the day. I had to wait two days and it so SOO worth the wait. Nelson and Veronica are so kind, caring and professional. Nelson is really informed on paragliding and on top of a great flight it was really cool to hear about the mechanics - I felt very safe and had so much fun. Would recommend to everyone!!
