Tandem Paraglider flights in the mountains of Colonia Tovar, a small town of German settlers near Caracas, the capital of Venezuela.  

The scenery is fantastic - from the launch site that locals call Placivel up at 1500 mtrs above sea level, overlooking a narrow valley way down at the foot of green grass steep mountains towering high up to the clouds.   As we lean on the rail of a large terrace, local pilots soar very near above our heads and some way up high making the view even more amazing.  

The staff were very professional and polite making it easy for the tourists to overcome the fear of experiencing free flight for the first time.  Each flight lasts 15 to 20 minutes with transportation from the landing field below included all for $50 u.s. sports footwear is required, and those who are prone to motion sickness must bring medication, although there are paper bags onboard in case you lose your breakfast. Another great thing is you don't have to wait for a season beacuse of Venezuela's beautiful weather, flying is possible all year.

Oh and don't miss the best hot dogs up there outside on the terrace, they're huge and only 3 dollars!

This experience was incredible and highly recommended for everyone!!
