We have two locations for our paragliding trips where our expert guides will take you soaring with the eagles. With both flights you will be connected by harness to the front of a guide and fly tandem.
The first location is near the town of Curiti and depending on the conditions you will fly for between 15 and 20 minutes over tobacco farms with a view towards the Chicamocha Canyon.
The second destination is in the Chicamocha canyon,the largest in Colombia and recently made national park. We supply transport to the top of the canyon where you will start your flight, enjoying amazing scenery, flights take between 30 minutes to an hour depending on the conditions and finish in the base of the canyon. We then provide your transport back to San Gil.
Paragliding courses can be arranged, Macondo does advise those wanting to learn paragliding in Colombia to learn with pilots who are internationally a credited so that you can use your certification when you go home and elsewhere in Colombia.
We also advise that you study with an English speaking guide or have a good level of Spanish. Its also important that you learn to fly at more than one location so you can learn about different conditions and become a better paraglider.
We highly recommend Ritchi Mantilla Gomez based in Ruitoque near Bucaramanga for courses.
