In this post we will list you all the beaches for paragliding in Ecuador.
One of the advantages of paragliding on the Ecuadorian Coast is that its thermal winds allow us to remain suspended in the air for longer, unlike doing it in the mountains. In addition, you can enjoy the incredible spectacle of the sea and its beaches.
In some beach towns in Ecuadir, tours are offered to practice this sport, either with specialized guides if you are a beginner or adventure tours if you are already an expert.
There are also paragliding schools with certified instructors in case you want to give it a try beyond the mere experience.
In general, the costs and flight time are almost the same on the Ecuadorian beaches:
Flight time: 15 minutes
Cost: $ 30 – $ 35
