I had a good flight and it was a nice view from above. But we were three customers and we wait from three a clock to nine a clock with just a 15mimutes flight trip. Of course it depends of the weather but they promised us a half hour but we just got 15 minutes in the air.

I went paragliding with Alejandro in February of this year. From our first email, to his picking me, to taking flight and landing again, Alejandro was terrific. He has over 17 years of experience and this is displayed through his calm but very encouraging demeanor. I was somewhat anxious but Alejandro walked me through the process step-by-step. And, when we... More

Thank you for helping me to do it, Alejandro! Alejandro was very professional in every sense of the word. He inspired confidence from the pick-up, through the flight preparation (his English is great), the safe and secure take-off/landing. I did fly!!!

My wife and I have wanted to try paragliding for some time now. Alejandro and Mendoza Parapente made our dreams come true! The flight was thrilling but calming at the same time. The view was fantastic, and the quietness and sense of peace is hard to describe. Alejandro was very professional in every sense of the word. He inspired confidence... More

My friends and I did this on New Years Day 2015, and it was by far one of the best adventures I've done so far in my life. Alejandro goes out of his way to make sure you feel both safe and comfortable. The views from the glider are incredible, you are simply floating over the Andes mountains. It's incredible.... More

We had one of the thrills of our lives with Alejandro and Mendoza Parapente. Running off the edge of the Cerro Arco and flying over the spectacular mountainous desert landscape surrounding Mendoza was nothing short of breathtaking. We were able to enjoy our 20 minutes in the air so much thanks to Alejandro, who is extremely well suited to being... More

Disclaimer at the start: we had 2 aborted take-offs and I didn't end up doing the flight. The pilot made me too uneasy. I've done 4 paraglides prior to this, several skydives and hang-glides. This one-man outfit give the impression that the owner wants your money regardless of weather and conditions. Pick-up on time, but no introduction to the other... More
