    Brilliant experience. The instructor convinced me to do hang gliding as it’s one of the few, and best, places in the world to do it. So glad I switched – it was amazing. Everything was well explained, the equipment was checked by several people, and the GoPro footage was a bonus. Strongly recommend, even if you’re unfit or a bit terrified. One tip – the return transfer is not included but the taxi driver still waited for me. Alternatively, it’s very easy to get an Uber.

    Amazing Paragliding experience! Appreciate the flexibility from the company since the original time had to be rescheduled due to weather. One does need patience with this due to wind patterns, so recommend not scheduling this last minute or towards the end of your trip. Flight instructions were clear, although not all instructors are fluent in English. For 300 extra (Brazilian Real) you can get a 360 panoramic video as well, in addition to the included video. Experience takes about 6-8 minutes of flying time with breathtaking scenery of the hills, forests, mountains, beach and blue ocean!

    A fabulous experience, guide didn’t speak much English but enough to explain what was going to happen. The views were amazing and were given the opportunity to control the paraglider.
