Dom Rep from the Sky - Paragliding Adventure

Duration: Half Day

dom rep from the sky - paragliding adventure

The Dominican Republic is renowned for its beautifully diverse scenery, boasting glorious white sandy beaches, sparkling turquoise waters, lush tropical forests and the highest mountains in the Caribbean. There are many ways to get off the beaten track and explore these spectacular landscapes, but one of the most exciting has to be paragliding. This is a fantastic opportunity to discover the island of Hispaniola from the sky.

Paragliding may not be the first activity that springs to mind during a holiday in the Dominican Republic, but this is one of the most exciting and memorable trips available and it can be done all year round. The country boasts some of the most dramatic places to fly in the world, and even getting to some of the takeoff points is an adventure in itself.

Offering over 20 different flying locations and a range of flights that vary from smooth coastal soaring to more demanding cross country trips above the valleys and central mountain ranges, there is a variety of exciting options for those seeking adventure in the skies. More experienced paraglider pilots can travel through the Cordillera Central region in the south of the country, whilst beginners can enjoy easier and safer routes along the coastline. 

Some of the most beautiful paragliding spots on the island include the top of Isabel de Torres in Puerto Plata, Jarabacoa, Matúa, Cofresi, Azua, Bani, Barahona and La Job, among others, offering a range of beautiful landscapes and good thermal conditions for paragliders to gain height.

Enjoy the incredible feeling of exhilaration as you soar effortlessly like a bird over lush green countryside, vast plains, rivers, mountains, ocean and miles of glorious coastline. This is the ultimate adrenaline rush – the views and experience will take your breath away! It’s no wonder that the Dominican Republic is fast becoming the most popular paragliding destination in the Caribbean.

Guided paragliding tours, tandem flights and free flying experiences can all be booked during your holiday. Training is provided for beginners, but no special knowledge or training is required for tandem tours. If you want to go it alone, various courses are available for novices and more experienced pilots who wish to perfect their skills in cross-country flying, and these can be tailored to suit individual needs and requirements. This unforgettable experience is a must for those seeking thrills and adventure in paradise.
