Paragliding Over Medellin

See also

Above the Andes mountain city of Medellin, there is a place where you can go paragliding. On a good clear day overlooking the city, and with the winds just right, it's the perfect place to take off from, even if you've never done it before.

The views are spectacular with the mountains that surround Medellin--and even more spectacular when you are floating above the Andes.

The training is fairly quick and easy, and paragliding is fairly safe. As with anything that has to do with gliding or parachuting, there is an element of risk involved. But if you want to take a break from the sights and sounds of the big city, venture off to the mountains and try your hand at paragliding.
