  • I highly recommend Paragliding Medellin, everything was perfectly managed and we had a great experience.  more »
  • In advance I was very positive about Paragliding Medellin. On the basis of my reservation names they contacted me by email and whatsapp. On the same day showed that by a certain wind delay sat in the process because the pilots had to countries instead of in the city that they could land back on the mountain. Fine, but: it was totally not clear when we could fly. We were getting off: about 20 minutes you can, about 40 minutes, within half an hour, you're next ... I understand well that it is weather dependent, but it would have been fine if they would have been clearer in advance about and if they for example. would say: it can take a long time depending on the wind, take a book with you and we will call you if you have a half hour/quarter can. Now we had to wait in the access box because the system worked with the broadcasters of your name, and because it already took so long wanted you then of course not to miss your chance because you then just in the restaurant is for example. Eventually, after six times have been told that I was within a half hour, I've given up. Have so unfortunately can't fly.

  • Has a great time paragliding and particularly enjoyed getting to know the owner Reuben. The paragliding was amazing, but getting the private transport with Reuben was like getting transport and a tour all in one. Terrific people, awesome experience.
  • I’m American. I felt very safe and commutation was easy! Willy was my pilot and he was great. This is a must do! Traveling to the site can take a while but is more than worth it!
  • Absolutely amazing!!!! Everyone here is extremely nice and experienced. The experience is unforgettable. Highly recommend it. I can’t say enough good things about this business and paragliding. Word of advice: do not take the road google map sends you through as it will send you up the worst hills of your life and in a questionable neighborhood. They helped us out as we got stuck on our way up due to google maps. So if you’re coming from Medellin just take the highway all the way up (it will be much easier and safer). Again, it’s amazing! Definitely do it!
  • Great experience and great views. Especially on the day with great conditions. They speak English just enough.
  • So much better than expected! I hadn't paraglided before and honestly wasn't too interested in it, thinking it was for wannabe daredevils too scared to skydive. Good thing I overcame my prejudices and went anyways. Paragliding is surreal. Even when tandem paragliding, you don't feel or see the pilot behind you nor the sail above. And you don't hear anything but the wind. I also didn't know this, but you go down AND up. You're really flying. I was blown away by the sensation. It was like a dream. The scenery—city, waterfalls, countryside—is amazing as well. And, perhaps most importantly, Rubenfly's whole operation is very professional and well-run. The pilots are true pros, they make you watch a safety video beforehand, the flight comes with insurance (just in case), and all the gear was super well-maintained. I felt 100% safe and I 100% recommend you do this in Medellin. It's 1/3 to 1/4 the cost of doing it in Canada, the US, or Europe and I can't imagine the experience can be beat anywhere else. Even better, if you're active, adventurous, and maybe a bit crazy, you can live the hikers' dream and hike up the mountain to the paragliding take-off—past a beautiful waterfall—then jump back down. Check out my guide on The Unconventional Route for more info.
