ParapenteWake up, pour a cup of hot coffee and sit on the bluff watching the surrounding nature stir to life. Small birds darting around through the tall grass let you know the ground is heating up, warm air lifting the small flying bugs from their shelter. Larger birds gathering to fly in lazy circles let you know thermals are forming and it's time put on your gear. And when round little puffs of clouds start to form in the sky, you know it's time to step off that cliff for an amazing day of flying.
Bucaramanga is a lively city and one of the best places in the world to learn how to fly. Get in touch with Richie Mantilla at http://www.colombiaparagliding.com/ if you want a fantastic instructor.
Classes are taught year round, and typically take 10 days to get earn an international certification. Once the course if over, there are options to hang around and fly as much as you want.
