RIDE & FLY
We are introducing the new way of flying and travelling in Colombia on your own
with a very nice Motorcycle.
I was from January 24, 2020 to February 7, 2020 with Colombia Paragliding School and Tours in Colombia.
I am very thankful for how Richie Mantilla and his team organized our trip.
It was the best paragliding tour I have ever done. I am very impressed by Colombia! The people are amazing! Food is great!
We flew every day and Richie had picked the best spots!
Transportation services, accommodation, the entire trip were very well organized and all promises were kept. There was not a single moment of friction or complaint!
The excitement, the culture, the food, and the flight were excellent! 5 out of 5 stars! I can't wait to meet Richie and his team again! By the way: he had a very professional driver to take us from one place to another in a very comfortable bus! Always supportive and friendly!
I can't wait to visit again!
Richi did an excellent job creating an unforgettable experience for me on the paragliding tour in Colombia that I joined in February! He is incredibly nice, he made me feel comfortable and safe immediately upon my arrival in Bucaramanga. You have mastered the perfect combination of professionalism and calm. He is so refreshing and laid back to have a good time and yet I was also impressed with his ability to simultaneously manage all the details of the trip to perfection. The bus was very nice and our driver was safe and efficient. The hostels we stayed in were great and Richi took us to many delicious restaurants where we ate like Colombian kings at low prices. What really closed the deal for me was Richie's genuine interest in the safety of every person on tour. He took the time to give us detailed tours of the site and supported each member of the tour at their own level of expertise. The trip exceeded my expectations, and I would definitely recommend it. Thanks Richi !!
First, Colombia is a top paragliding destination. I have flown on 5 continents and this country has it all. If you are looking for the best experience, Richi will make it extraordinary! Good food and accommodation right next to the launch. Licensed equipment dealer at better prices than you will find at home. Excellent team of instructors. The whole package.
Training: Great grass throw where instructors teach the fundamentals and another in the landing zone to train you smoothly with fast ferries, so multiple training flights are the norm in the morning. Progress to the afternoon crest where you can have hours of buttery smooth flight over beautiful landscapes.
Tours: road trip from Chicamocha, the Grand Canyon of Colombia and Bucaramanga in the north, touring the country to Piedechinche in the south, flying 7 or more unique sites. Well-groomed Colombian pitches are suitable for pilots. Richi has friends everywhere, so expect a fantastic display of food, nightlife, and culture in the finest accommodations, from mountaintop pitches to boutique hotels and a hacienda where cooks arrive to make breakfast. You will finish the tour with new lifelong friends.
Logistics: Pick up at Bucaramanga Intl airport and, if you book the tour, Piedechinche is close to Cali Intl airport. The tour takes place in a spacious van with a designated driver. I've been at home for 3 months and I'm still smiling. I can't wait to go back!
Richie is a fun, enthusiastic, and expert guide on all things paragliding! Whether you are starting your airplane journey or arriving as a seasoned pilot, Richie has something for everyone. I arrived as an experienced pilot and my friend arrived inexperienced and we both had a great time.
Richie runs "The Nest" hostel, ideally located above the town of Floridablanca, right next to a world class paragliding launch site. The lodge experience is one of the best I have come across in my travels, and included breakfast and recoveries from the landing zone. I have stayed both in the bunk room and in
Some of the private rooms in my 3 stays at The Nest, I would recommend to all.
Also, I joined a tour with Richie in February 2019. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about each site on the tour, but he also has valuable connections along the way to make the experience easy and fun. Each experience was seamless as we ventured from Bucaramanga to Valle del Cauca. I cannot recommend Richie's tours highly enough, I hope to join again one day.
