Perfect Paragliding

This trip was absolutely amazing! All of the guides and crew were extremely nice and ensured our safety and joy throughout the adventure! There’s nothing quite as beautiful, calm, or peaceful while still being adventurous and exciting as paragliding! This was definitely a highlight of our trip!

Paragliding tandem flight from Madrigal was UNREAL. Our tour guides were amazing, they were super nice/friendly & made sure that we were comfortable every single step of the way. We did not opted for the pick up because we had a car but when we got there, the wait was no more than about 15 minutes from our scheduled time which was great because it allowed us to take pictures. I think it was worth every dollar. I loved how tranquil it was up there, it was unlike anything I’ve ever done & the air up there was indescribable, I’ve never breathed so fresh & clear. I loved everything about it, I felt like a bird, riding the wind. I could not have asked for more. The next time I’m in Costa Rica, I will definitely stop by Paragliding tandem flight from Madrigal again.
Amazing views cool adventure!

This was a bucket list item for me and I’m so glad I got to cross it if in Jaco! Our guides were great, very knowledgeable and confident in their skill. Highly recommend

If you’re going to go one thing in Jaco this should be it! The tour guides were so knowledgeable, funny, and friendly. The time we spent in the air was so exciting yet peaceful. We will be back next time we’re in Jaco!
