Paragliding

The Dominican Republic is blessed with the Caribbean’s highest mountain ranges, tucked in the heart of the country, where you’ll find the lushest landscapes and coolest temperatures. Hiking is a great way to explore these areas, but paragliding above the DR’s mountainous towns—Jarabacoa and Constanza—gives an unparalleled, magical viewpoint, with a Caribbean landscape you will only see in the DR. Certified paragliding instructors drive you to the lift-off point, where you’ll strap up into a harness in tandem with your guide, and safely step off into the open sky together. Fly over peaks, gushing waterfalls—Jarabacoa’s were once the site of Hollywood movies like Jurassic Park—verdant villages, and plantation fields. You’ll never see the DR the same way again.

Paragliding is available year-round, but the best time for a session is close to sunset, when the air is cooler and the spectacular scenery glows all around.

PARAGLIDING IN
Dominican Republic

Launch into the Dominican Republic’s skies, soaring like a bird above cool mountain peaks, waterfalls, coastline, and villages.

 
 
Soar in the skies over Jarabacoa’s mountains and waterfalls! It’s an unforgettable experience as you fly around clouds, drawn about by the steady winds, taking in Jarabacoa’s spectacular mountains, green pastures, and the gushing waters of Salto de Jimenoa all far below your feet.
Jarabacoa
Go paragliding in tandem with expert guides and enjoy the majestic views over Constanza town, its plantations, and valleys from the sky. You’ll quickly see why this area of the country is called “the Switzerland of the Caribbean.”
