My Paragliding Experience

I’m excited to share my paragliding experience from last weekend. I had the pleasure to experience it with my friends (Augusto, Yareli, Jean and my sister Brigette), and we did it in Constanza.
What is paragliding?
Paragliding is the simplest and purest form of flying there is. It is an adventure sport where a person glides through the air using a wide canopy, a fabric wing that’s made up of a large number. In paragliding, the pilot “takes off” from an elevated position; usually the top of a hill or mountain, then uses wind forces to help him maintain flight. Through the flight, the pilot sits in a harness suspended below the wing.
Paragliding at Casabito, Constanza
Located in the heart of the Dominican Republic, 600 meters above sea level, between the beautiful mountains of over 3,000 meters.
They say that if you want something, you need to earn it. Well, that’s true in this case – before you can launch from the mountain top, you need to climb up the mountain first.
