Amazing Flight!
Feb. 2021 • Couples
We did the paragliding for the first time and it was such a wonderful experience! The views were breathtaking! The pilot asked if we want some acrobatic trics, and it was an amazing feeling to turn in a circle or to do fast turnings with the tandem. It was the first,but not the last time we did this! Recomend for everybody!

Highlights tour
Jan. 2021 • Friends
Zion is the Costa Rican version of James Bond. His wife Beth is the sweetest, and also an amazing pilot. She was always there to give us rides back up to the launch and cater to our needs. I spent three days with him training xc, then joined his highlights tour across Costa Rica that exceeded all of my expectations! By far one of the coolest things I’ve done. If your interested in learning how to paraglide, take tandem flights, or extend your paragliding knowledge with xc Zion is your guy. You’d be making a huge mistake going anywhere else in Costa Rica.

Amazing experience paragliding
Dec. 2020 • Family
We had the most amazing experience with Zion Paragliding! The whole process was very smooth, from picking us up in Dominical to driving us up to the liftoff sight. The views at the top were absolutely amazing and being able to paraglide off the mountain with beautiful views of the Costa Rica coast was very special! Zion did a great job of guiding us through the take off and landing process and made all of us feel very comfortable with flying. Would recommend this to anyone looking to try paragliding!
